Leo wants to know how young a minor can be to travel unaccompanied. Johnny says that it varies from airline to airline, but it's around 16 years old. And here's a great hack — airlines will not cancel a flight if there's an unaccompanied minor traveling. They don't want to run the risk of losing the child. But they may also charge you extra for a minor to travel. That's great insurance to make sure your child's flight doesn't get canceled, though. Also, always book a nonstop flight. That way the child doesn't have to get off and board another plane.
