Ethiopian considers children from the age of 5 to end of 11 years who are traveling alone on Ethiopian or Other Airline as Unaccompanied Minors. Escort service is mandatory for unaccompanied minors aged between 5 to end of 11 traveling on a code share flight but escort is optional on Ethiopian flights provided only when special attention is requested by the guardian.
Ethiopian considers youth between the ages of 12 to17 as unaccompanied minors as well if special attention is required by youth’s parents or guardian. If the flight is operated by Ethiopian Airlines that is if the flight is none code share flight, there is no need for escort and service fee payment for a minor aged between the ages of 12 to 17 unless special attention is requested. If, however, the flight is not operated by Ethiopian Airlines, that is if the flight is code share flight operated by other airlines, the minor aged between 12 to 17 shall be required to pay adult fare plus service fee of USD 100.But escort service is still not mandatory even on code share flights unless special attention requested for this age group.
