Before you contact us to book a ticket, please fill in the form listed below with information about the child, who leaves and retrieves the child and other information we need.

How it works

  • The child must be dropped off in person by relatives (same persons as indicated at the time of booking) no later than 1 hour before departure.
  • Unaccompanied children must have a UM bag (provided by us) that contains information about the child, the booking and who will pick up the child.
  • Relatives dropping off the child at the departure airport must always stay until the plane takes off
  • The ticket includes 1 checked baggage of max 20 kg and carry-on baggage max 8 kg, max dimensions 40 x 35 x 20 cm
  • Our representative follows the child from the gate where you leave the child, on board the plane and helps the child with luggage and find their seat. The cabin crew supervises the child throughout the flight and upon arrival, our representative accompanies the child to the airport meeting place for unaccompanied minors for hand over to their relatives. Please note that we only hand over the child to the person specified in the booking and the person who picks up the child must be able to identify themselves.

Travel with reduced mobility

If you cannot move to an emergency exit during a possible evacuation, you will be considered mobility impaired. It is possible to book your trip on our website, but then you must contact our customer service afterwards to book the right assistance based on your needs on 0520 – 82500 or email info@vastflyg.se.

Booking of assistance must be made at least 72 hours before departure. Booking later than 72 hours before departure is treated as an unannounced assistance. You are still entitled to assistance, but waiting time can occur when pre-registration is prioritized first.

If you have booked assistance, you can bring two movement aids in addition to your luggage free of charge. If you travel with your own wheelchair, you can either check it in and borrow a wheelchair at the airport or use your own wheelchair through the airport.

When you have booked assistance, you must notify your arrival at the departure airport’s specially marked meeting place for assistance no later than 60 minutes before departure time.
