Children Travelling Alone

We provide special assistance after check-in and during the flight to children between 5 and 11 travelling without adult supervision (more than 18 years old), under a payment of a fee:

  • EUR 40 for Domestic flights and flights within Europe;
  • EUR 100 for flight from Portugal to Canada, United States and Brasil;
  • CAD 150 for flights from Canada to Portugal;
  • USD 150 for flights from United States to Portugal.

These values are applied to flights operated by SATA. Flights operated on code-share, the tax fee may change according to the company that operates the flight. This service is mandatory for children travelling alone, or when travelling with a passenger under 18 years or not emancipated.


Children under 5 must travel with an adult fare and pay a surcharge for supervision by an assistant. Payment of the fee should be made at the airport on the day of travel.
At the time of reservation, identification and contact information must be provided for the adult meeting the child at the destination airport. In the case of a flight technical stop, the inexistence of an escort previously designated to accompany the children at the transfer station implies boarding refusal.

For minors, with 12 years old or more, we provide an assistance service at the airport. To know more about this service please contact a ticketing office or our contact center.
