Enhanced wellbeing - fly with confidence

The continued safety and wellbeing of our passengers and crew is always our highest priority which is why we have implemented enhanced wellbeing measures which includes all customers aged 11 and above wearing face masks.

There is an exemption to the requirement for a face covering for customers with medical grounds, such as respiratory difficulties. If you meet the exemption requirements, you may be asked to present supporting government documentation

This is one element of a series of enhanced wellbeing measures we have implemented which include:

  • Microbe Shield surface protection in the cabin
  • Aircraft touch point sanitation procedures
  • Cabin air is continuously replenished with fresh air every 5 - 7 minutes, the cabin may be slightly cooler than normal, therefore you may wish to have a jumper to hand
  • Seat allocation to maximise the distance between passengers in the cabin where possible.
  • Reduced contact points, with the exception of safety cards, all seat-back literature has been removed and there is no inflight service

We look forward to welcoming you on board.

An Infant is up to 2 years old at time of return flight. If the infant becomes 2 years old whilst traveling, you will need to book a child fare.

An Adult is anyone aged 16 or over at the time of the return journey.

Unaccompanied travel

Child welfare is very important to us and that's why we no longer operate a Child unaccompanied minor scheme.

A Youth (ages 12-15) may travel unchaperoned, on point-to-point services only, this means they will need to make their own way through the airport, to the departure gate, on to the aircraft and then through the arrival airport unaccompanied.

We are unable to accept bookings for unchaperoned travel where the journey involves more than one flight, either outbound or inbound.

The Youth should have the provision to communicate with the responsible adults at arrival and departure airports, further to this we recommend the responsible adult(s) wait at the departure airport for 15 minutes after the flight has departed and the responsible adult(s) are at the destination airport are in the arrivals area at least 15 minutes before the flight's scheduled arrival time.

Bookings for Youths travelling unchaperoned can be made by contacting the Customer Care team.
