Travel Guidance for Minors

Unaccompanied Minors

Age and price vary on each airline's unaccompanied minors policy, SEA Airport suggests contacting your airline in advance to see what their exact policies are. Allow extra time for check in and paperwork required before the flight.

Escorting Minors to Their Gate

Each airline has their own policies, but usually will approve a gate pass if you are assisting unaccompanied minors. Airlines will usually allow for a parent or guardian to enter and go through security with them and will assign you a gate pass during the booking process. Our SEA Visitor Pass Program provides post-security access at TSA Checkpoint 3 if you need additional access outside of the Gate Passes issued by airlines specifically for unaccompanied minors.

Identification Requirements

According to TSA, IDs for security screening need to be government-issued with a photo to help confirm your identity. TSA does not require people under 18 to provide identification when traveling within the United States. Usually airlines don't require a form of ID for boarding and just require your boarding pass.
