Unaccompanied Minor Option
Many people believe that the unaccompanied minor option is just for solo travellers under 12 years. However, unaccompanied seniors can use this option as well. This helps give peace of mind for many families worried about their older relatives travelling alone. We advise you to check with the airline or contact us to see which airlines provide the unaccompanied minor option and on which routes.

Flying with Medication
We know that many senior and elderly travellers need to take their medication on board the flight.
Our first tip: Check before travelling if there are restrictions in place on medications when taking them out of our a certain country and into the country you are visiting. Also, check the amount and type of medication that you are flying with.
Assistance for Veterans and injured Armed Forces and Soldiers
For all injured, wounded soldiers and veterans, we advise contacting the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to request assistance through security screening processes. The TSA will verify the status of those injured and wounded, through the appropriate military branch. They may use the TSA Precheck screening at available locations at departing/arriving U.S airports.
Find more information on TSA Precheck here.
Reduced Mobility Assistance
Find all information about needed mobility assistance, wheelchair assistance and the types of wheelchair assistance with Alternative Airlines.
