Children traveling

We look after our younger travelers and have seat belts that can accommodate standard child car seats. And for the safety of all kids who ride with us, we have a few important rules…


  • Children traveling into the U.S. will need proof of citizenship, such as a birth certificate.  Under U.S. law, children under 16 aren’t allowed to travel into the U.S. without an adult.  Take a look at our general information related to international travel for children 
  • Pursuant to Illinois state law, unemancipated minors under the age of 17 traveling from Illinois to a destination outside of Illinois can only do so with the consent of the parent or legal guardian. 
  • Children and young adults should be prepared to show proof of age, if requested. 
  • Boarding begins up to 20 mins prior to departure time so if you are checking bags or still need to get your ticket, be sure you give yourself time to have an agent assist you at the ticket counter.
