UM’s and YT’s

Explorer C

Hey I personally am a YT and at the moment i am worried because i have researched a lot and i cant find anywhere on the policy’s about an UM and YT flying together. I am unaware of the layout of the airport because it is my first time flying and i don’t know if me and my sibling will be getting escorts or not, i also don’t know if we will be getting boarded first because there is an UM present.

First of all a UM is one that is flying solo.


You would be a YT flying with a minor. Unless I am mistaken, that is allowed.


Gate passes are allowed for unticketed people to help others thru the terminal. Is there a friend or relative that could get an gate pass and fill that role,?
