Kingsway Summer School – Which Airline?

Are you not sure which airlines accept solo travellers or unaccompanied minors? The list below shows the minimum ages of passengers, as supplied by English UK on 16th April 2019. Please check with your specific airline in case there have been any changes.

Accompanied check-in

If you would like a Kingsway member of staff to help you check-in then you can book this for GBP £40 at the time of booking your course. After check-in you will be accompanied to the departure point for passengers either by us or the airline staff.

Please Note : We will automatically charge this for students travelling as “unaccompanied minors” (UM) as the driver has to wait until the plane has taken off.
