Teens & Flight ID

We are flying with our 15-year-old teens next January. What ID do they need to get on the plane? Also, I've remarried, so their last name is different from mine, if it makes a difference.

  • Call the airline to be sure, but.......

    Customers under the age of 18 are not required to present ID for domestic U.S. travel. Identification from the responsible adult will be accepted on behalf of the minor(s); however, it is recommended that minors traveling alone have a form of identification. Children, regardless of age, must possess all necessary travel documents as required by the countries visited on an international itinerary.

    In an effort to prevent international child abduction, many governments have initiated procedures at entry and exit points. These often include requiring documentary evidence of relationship and permission for the child's travel from the parent(s) or legal guardian not present. Having such documentation on hand, even if not required, may facilitate entry and departure.
