At Hawaiian Airlines, we know that children are a precious part of every family, or ‘ohana in Hawaiian. So when you entrust us with your child, we take our job extra seriously.
Our guidelines for our youngest solo travelers are designed to deliver them safely to their destinations, with maximum peace of mind for you. From the time they board our aircraft until we hand them off to the adult you designate at the end of their journey, we’ll take good care of them.
To make sure we give your child the special attention they need when traveling alone, please call our Reservations department to notify them that your child will be traveling alone.

Unaccompanied Minor Service Assistance
Hawaiian Airlines Mandatory Fee (One Way)
It’s important to us that your child’s journey be as safe and short as possible. For that reason, unaccompanied minors are not allowed to fly on the following flights:
Exception: This does not apply to unaccompanied minors connecting on flights between Hawaiian Airlines and 'Ohana by Hawaiian operated by Empire Airlines.
Exception: If the next scheduled connecting flight departs more than 2 hours after the previous flight’s scheduled arrival, unaccompanied minors must be booked on that flight the same day and not on a later flight. If no seats are available on this flight during booking, the child must travel on another day when these conditions can be met.
Both you and your child must check in with an agent at the airport. This is so you can complete some required forms and pay the unaccompanied minor fee. Children traveling alone will not be allowed to check in on the web or at an airport kiosk.
Your child doesn’t have to be under 12 years old to get special care from us. For children 12 and older, Hawaiian Airlines offers designated staff to supervise and help your child between connecting flights or at the destination airport. Our Meet and Assist Service is available for kids traveling between North America and Hawaii or within the State of Hawaii. Meet and Assist comes with a few Rules and Restrictions and these additional fees:
