Cabo Verde Airlines offers special assistance to unaccompanied minors (UM) between the age of 5 and 11, including at the date of return, subject to prior approval from our services.

Children between 12 and 15 years, inclusive, may exceptionally be accepted as “unaccompanied minors” at the request of their parents or guardians.

Do not worry, your UM will receive special attention and supervision from check-in until arrival at the final destination.

It is necessary and possible to fill in the form for an unaccompanied minor here.


To be accepted as an unaccompanied minor, the passenger should have:

  • Confirmed reservation;
  • Valid ID;
  • Entry visa for the country of the destination country, if necessary;
  • Travel authorization from parents or guardians;
  • “Handling Advice” form completed;
  • Receipt of payment of service.


A service fee is charged for the carriage of unaccompanied minors. The fee is variable:

  • For a flight from/to Europe: €100
  • For a flight from/to the US: 150$

Ancillary services are not refundable after their purchase.

Parents or legal guardians should not leave the airport departure terminal until confirmation that the child has boarded and is of the flight’s departure.

At arrival, Cabo Verde Airlines will deliver the minor only to the person previously indicated in the unaccompanied minor document.
