What age would you let your child/ren, fly by themselves??

I really don't know... but probably not until she was... 8? or 10? I know that airlines have very strict rules for children flying alone, and that they're very much safe when they're doing so.... I guess it'd depend on the length of the flight too - an international flight would be a lot different, to a domestic flight (esp since the longest domestic flight here, is probably 2 hours!).

My ex used to have his DS fly down for school holidays & he was 7 & flying alone, the thought always scared me a little! But someone from the airline always took him onto the plane & then accompanied him off, & handed him over to my ex

Well they have to be 16 to get their pilots license and have to do so many hours before they can fly alone...

Commercially... it depends on them and how mature they are if they would need to fly alone.

Thanks to Claire1979 for the amazing siggy.
