Unaccompanied minor

New Arrival

Hello,

 

I have to pick up my son who will be traveling as an unaccompanied minor.  I am wondering if I am allowed to bring my baby when I pick him up at the gate.  If not, can I request that someone bring him to us?

 

Thanks,

Michelle

That shouldn't be a problem.  Go to the full service check-in desk at the airport and request a gate pass for you and your baby so you can meet the minor at the gate.  You'll want to get there plenty early to get the pass, go through security, etc, before the plane arrives.

As @TheMiddleSeat stated that shouldn't be a problem as i personally have gone with my grandparents to pick up my cousins and I was 18-20 years old they let all 3 of us get a gate pass so you shouldn't have any problems especially since you would have a baby.
