How to Book Flights for an Unaccompanied Minor
Search for flights
Use the search form at the top of the page to search for flights for the YT. Enter the departure airport, arrival airport and the dates of travel. Click ‘Search flights’.
Select your Southwest flights
We’ll then display all the available flight options based on your search. If you’re looking for flights with a specific airline, such as Southwest, you can filter the results by selecting this airline; see below. If you cannot see Southwest as an option, this is because there are no flights available with this airline based on your search. Try changing your dates of travel, or try alternative airports.
Enter YT passenger information and parent/guardian contact details
Enter the passenger details of the Young Traveller. When you enter the YT’s Date of Birth, the passenger will be automatically recognised as a young traveller. You will then be asked to enter the contact information for the YT’s parent or guardian. If the airline charges a fee for the travel of a young person alone, this will also be automatically applied to the booking, which you’ll be able to see in the payment breakdown.
We’ll send the e-ticket(s) to the booking contact’s email address as soon as the booking is confirmed.
