Children Traveling Alone

  • A maximum of 4 Unaccompanied Minors may be carried on each flight.

Unaccompanied Minor Travel Guidelines

  • Unaccompanied Minors must be checked-in by an adult guardian who must provide photo identification and contact information, as well as the relationship to the child. On arrival in the destination city, the Icelandair ground agent will also check photo identification and contact information before releasing the child to the guardian, who is predetermined in the child's reservation documents.
  • Travel documents for the Unaccompanied minor concerned are placed in a special Icelandair wallet clearly visible on the child.
  • Please note that all Unaccompanied Minors must be confirmed in advanced before the traveling on Icelandair. Please contact our reservations department to make a reservation for them.
