Any Guest over two (2) years of age but is not yet twelve (12) is classed as a child and must occupy a seat with their own ticket. A child must travel with a Guest who is 15 years of age and over or the parent/legal guardian who is 13 years of age and over.
Children may be required to show proof of age at check-in, at which time the evidence must be presented on request. The child’s valid passport and/or travel documents will fulfil this condition.
A child must be able to sit upright unaided in the seat purchased, with the seat belt adjusted securely without slack around the waist.
A child fare is valid for the entire return journey as long as the child is under 12 years of age on the date of the forward journey. A return child fare is still valid, even if the child turns 12 years of age after the forward journey, but before the return journey.
V Australia does not provide a service for children under 12 years of age to travel alone /unaccompanied.
Ages at which a child can travel unaccompanied can vary between airlines.
If you are booking a service operated by one of our partner airlines for a child 12- 15 years of age to travel alone, please refer to the (partner airline) pages for further information or contact the (VA GCC).
