Unaccompanied minors

Rest assured that your child is in safe hands while traveling alone with us. It can be quite daunting for a child traveling alone, both to the child and the loved ones.

At Himalaya Airlines we take all the extra measures to take special care of your child right through till your child is reunited with loved ones.

Furthermore, we bear a legal responsibility while undertaking the carriage of unaccompanied minors/young passengers and is vital for us to exercise the greatest care and discretion in the matter.

How it works

Our crew is notified in advance about your child, who will pre-board, escort and assist your child with anything that they need. Your child is in safe hands and is given special attention and care during the entire flight.

Once landed, our crew will again ensure safe disembarkment of your child through the forward premium economy class door and hand them over to the ground staff, who will further take care that your child is reunited with the loved ones.
