2.3. UMNR (Unaccompanied Minors)
A UMNR (Unaccompanied minor) is a minor travelling without an escort. Acceptance of these
passengers is subject to the transport and fare pricing rules set out below.

The age for mandatory UM status is from 5 to 14 years old.
CityJet takes responsibility for the unaccompanied minor from the time the accompanying adult
entrusts him/her to the WX reception agent (prior to the latest check-in time), until he/she is handed
over to the person appointed to collect him/her at the final destination point. UMNRs have access to all
classes of transport on all CityJet operated flights.

With this product, the minor is taken care of, from the check-in operations to the moment he/she is
entrusted to the designated person at the final destination.
A young person accompanied on the outward journey and alone on the return may benefit from the
service at the turn-round point only.

This service must be systematically offered to passengers coming within the scope of the application
at the time a request is made for reservation (or information).

2.3.1 Quota

. Maximum of 6 UM on RJ85 aircraft
. Maximum of 4 UM on F50 aircraft

2.3.2 Creation of the reservation file (PNR)

- It is mandatory to specify that this is a UM via a UMNR comment plus the age.
- Add 2 elements with the names and contact details of the people accompanying the child on
departure and collecting him/her on arrival.
Example:
for departure PAR CTC /MR MRS.. Address ... Telephone
for arrival NYC CTC /MRS ........ Address ... Telephone

2.3.3 UMNR form

Printing a UMNR form can be done via WX web site : this form will allow the customer to prepare all
information that will be needed at the airport.

2.3.4 Fare pricing process

- Check the fare note, CD paragraph
- Proceed with the automatic fare pricing, which will enable the UMNR status to appear in the fare
basis and thus the specific fare to be applied. For example, a RT trip from LCY – DUB for a UMNR, if
correctly priced, would have at the end of the fare basis code the ticket designator /UM. That being the
case, the UM service will be charged on the top of the net fare, therefore the passenger will have
nothing to pay at the airport in the form of a EMD).

                        20-WX commercial policy Travel Agencies v22 29Jan15
2.3.5 Other issuance cases

If a passenger wishes to have a minor travel with UMNR status on the outbound journey and as an
accompanied minor on the return, or vice-versa, - two single tickets must be issued, one for each leg.

In the case of a minor with an accompanied minor fare and whose parents wish that he/she travels as
a UMNR after purchasing the ticket for the whole journey and case of a minor with an accompanied
minor fare and whose parents wish that he/she travels as a UMNR on a single leg or wish to modify
his/her status at the return point:

- an exchange must be made, the total ticket fare recalculated (unless it is not-modifiable), taking into
account the fare note rules and the obligation above, and any modification charges applied.
The amount of the initial ticket may be used to pay for the new ticket(s).
