During the flight cabin crew will regularly check that your child is comfortable and entertained and all staff will be aware of their requirements. Make sure your child knows of their travel plans and who is meeting them on arrival, also the importance of their passport and ticket. We will do our best to ensure that your child's experience is enjoyable.
Explain flight procedures to your child: kids traveling alone should speak only to EGYPTAIR agents if they need help or have questions. And they should never leave the airport, the gate area or the aircraft unless accompanied by an EGYPTAIR representative wearing a badge. Be sure to let gate agents know if your child has any special needs. If there is a change to your child’s itinerary en route, an agent will contact you.
Arrive at the airport at least 90 minutes prior to departure time for domestic flights and two hours prior to international flights.
