I'm planning on taking my 6 year old nephew on a domestic flight (Leeds to Cornwall) this summer.

I understand that if we were going abroad, I would need a letter of parental/guardian consent. Is this the same for domestic flights? Is there anything else that I need?

I have permission from both parents.

  • Which airline? Though I imagine there aren't that many flying leeds to cornwall! – Berwyn Mar 7 '18 at 19:40
  • Probably FlyBE or BritishAirways – user74596 Mar 7 '18 at 19:49

    I would get a parental permission letter anyway, in case the police want to question you. That is just my personal opinion, though. – Matthew Barclay Mar 11 '18 at 1:24

From FlyBE's requirements (much less strict for Domestic travel):

Children and domestic travel

Children under the age of 16 do not need to show ID on domestic routes. The adult they are travelling with can vouch for the infant's/child's identification, providing the relevant photo ID is shown (by the adult). On International routes a passport will be required.

If the child is traveling unaccompanied and aged between 12-16 years, they will be required to produce photographic ID.

So it seems like they're register that there was a child travelling with you, but would rely on you for the identification. No other document is required.

Again, this is for domestic only.
