Yes. Interjet can transport unaccompanied minors who are between 5 and 18 years old minus one day, at the moment of the flight. The following considerations need to be taken into account: Unaccompanied minors cannot travel with Priority Fare due to the airline policies in relation to passengers with special needs. If a minor travels alone, Interjet needs to be informed at the moment of the purchase. The service has a $50 USD, $68 CAD or $500 MXN fee, in each direction, which must be paid while purchasing the ticket. At the time of checking in, the father, mother or guardian will have to specifically request Interjet the transportation of the unaccompanied minor. The father, mother or guardian will have to provide the necessary information to fill the form “Request of Unaccompanied Minors Service” (data of the minor, data of the person who delivers the minor and data of the person who receives the minor at the destination airport). Besides, the person exercising parental authority or guardianship over the minor will have to sign this document. The father, mother or guardian will have to stay at the airport until the plane takes off. The person designated by the father, mother or guardian of the minor, will have to show an official identification with photo to receive the child at the destination airport. In addition to the passport of the minor, official ID of the person who gives authorization (the one who has parental authority or guardianship) and, if this happens, official ID of the adult who will accompany the minor, one of the following documents is requested when traveling abroad:
● A document through which those exercising parental authority or guardianship, authorize the departure of the minor from the country, executed before a notary public.
● A document issued by the competent authority. Minors with Mexican nationality or residency, who travel from Mexico to other countries, require the Departure Form for Minors (SAM). You can learn more about the process to get this document on the National Institute of Immigration (INM) website . If the document that contains the authorization is granted abroad, it must be legalized or apostilled, as appropriate, and be accompanied by the respective translation if written in any language other than Spanish.
