Heads up about the introduction of this fee:
Unaccompanied Minors Supervision Fee 10 October 2014 At Qantas, we’re committed to providing children travelling alone with the highest levels of care and support to facilitate a comfortable and enjoyable travel experience.
Given the increasing demand for this extra support, and the increasing costs involved, effective for bookings ticketed in Australia and New Zealand on/after 3 November 2014, Qantas will introduce a Supervision Fee for children travelling on its flights unaccompanied.
The additional services we provide to Unaccompanied Minors include:
- Additional administration prior to and on arrival at the airport (including preparation of additional travel documents);
- Immigration and security processing for international flights;
- The provision of onboard assistance; and
- For connecting flights, ground staff who escort the child from arrival gate to departure gate.
These additional services are not required for children travelling with a parent, guardian or sibling 15 years or older.
In some ports, Qantas also provides dedicated waiting rooms for Unaccompanied Minors during transit, which have been set up to provide effective and secure care.
