Guidelines for arrival and departure times will be provided after registration.

Unaccompanied Minor Service: If your child is flying independently, some airlines require that you purchase an Unaccompanied Minor (UAM) Service for children of a certain age. This service is provided by the airline and ensures your child is with authorized airline personnel from the moment they board the flight until they arrive at the date of their destination. The UAM service fee varies by the airline and is payable directly to the airlines.
