Booking Travel for an Unaccompanied Minor
You will be asked to provide the name, phone number and address for the responsible party dropping off and picking up the child. Unaccompanied minors may not travel on flights departing between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. or connect to flights departing between those hours.
Connections to RavnAir Alaska, Alaska Airlines, Horizon Air, or PenAir must depart within two hours of arrival time of the RavnAir Alaska flight. Aircraft type limits the number of Unaccompanied Minors accepted on any given flight. Unaccompanied Minor service is offered on a first come, first served basis.
All Unaccompanied Minor service fees are in addition to the ticket price and must be paid upon arrival at the airport. Unaccompanied Minor service fees are non-refundable. Unaccompanied Minors cannot travel with pets (either carried on board or checked as baggage) or with firearms.
Unaccompanied Minor’s must be checked in one (1) hour prior to the scheduled departure of their flight. Photo ID will be required from the guardians designated for drop-off and pick-up. Regarding outbound travel, the responsible party must stay with the child until the flight has departed and is airborne.

A child is considered an infant from birth to the day of their 2nd birthday.
Infant on Lap
An infant can travel on a ticketed passengers lap, free of charge. One infant is allowed per ticketed adult. When making reservations, please advise the agent that you will be traveling with an infant. This will be noted in your reservation. If booking online, please select the infant option.
Infant Car Seats
An adult traveling with an infant may check the infant’s child restraint seat and/or stroller free of charge in addition to the regular baggage allowance.
Infants, under the age of 2 years, traveling with their own ticket should use a Child Restraint System (CRS) car seat on board for travel. The Child Restraint System (CRS) must conform to all applicable Federal Aviation Administration certifications. A sticker should appear on the Child Restraint System with red lettering stating, “This Restraint is Certified for Use in Motor Vehicles and Aircraft”. The seat width (arm rest to arm rest) on RavnAir Alaska Beechcraft 1900 and DeHavilland Dash-8 that are operated by Corvus Airlines are 17 inches across.
A seat can be purchased and reserved for an infant at the same price of the accompanying adult’s fare. A maximum of two infant tickets may be purchased per traveling adult. Infants with their own seat must travel in an approved child restraint seat. Infants with their own tickets are subject to all standard fees and are entitled to the same baggage allowance as an adult traveler.
Get on early and relax. We offer pre-boarding for adults traveling with infants.
Children with Disabilities
For children with disabilities, AmSafe has designed CARES (Child Aviation Restraints) specific for the unique challenges of traveling with a special-needs child. The system is approved for use by the Federal Aviation Administration. The system offers added safety and upper body support for children, pre-teens and teenagers.
