The transportation agreement (UM Handling Advice) must be completed carefully in advance, at check-in at the latest.

In domestic traffic in Finland a child over 5 years is allowed to travel with a family member over 12 years without UM service. If the travelling companion is a non-family member, the minimum age requirement is 16 years.
In international traffic a child over 5-years travelling with a family member over 16 years of age is not considered as an unaccompanied minor. If the travelling companion is a non-family member, the minimum age requirement is 18 years.

A child under 5 years-old must be accompanied by a person of at least 16 years-old on a domestic flight, and by a person of at least 18 years-old on an international flight.
The UM service may also be used for persons above 11 years of age, if the parents require the service. Please note that when travelling to the United States, a minor under 15 years of age travelling alone must have an unaccompanied minor reservation.

Note: UMNR may not be booked for the last domestic flights of the evening (arriving at the destination after 23:00) within Finland. The reason for this is that solving any possible problem situations (e.g. the person who’s supposed to meet the child on arrival does not show up) can be difficult to handle this late.

Agent Help desk will confirm the UM SSR lines. In urgent cases, please call +358 9 81831610, or send email to agentinfo@finnair.com.

 

Unaccompanied Minors who are Italian citizens

Please note that there is a new Italian law in force that applies to Unaccompanied Minors who are Italian citizens. The law requires that children up to and including 13 years who are travelling alone must, apart from being in possession of the correct travel documents, hold an “Affidavit” signed by both parents and verified by the police. Italian UMNRs will not be allowed to travel to/from Italy without the required Affidavit.
