Air Canada solo flight age requirement raised

Air Canada is raising the minimum age for its unaccompanied minor program to eight years from five. Under the new rules, children less than eight years old must be accompanied by an adult who is 16 or older. Starting next Thursday, for unaccompanied minor bookings made for travel on or after July 1, children must be between the ages of 8 and 11 to be allowed to travel alone on the airline's nonstop flights. The revised service, which includes having an Air Canada employee escort children on and off the plane, will cost $100 one-way, up from $75. "The unaccompanied minor service is optional for children aged 12-17, travelling alone," Air Canada says. AC.B (TSX) rose 4 cents to $8.50.
