You can also book a flight online for children travelling with you. If you would like to book a ticket for more than 1 child under the age of 2 per adult, you will have to book the ticket through KLM Telephone Reservations.
Children ages 14 and younger may only travel with a parent or guardian 18 years of age and older. Children between the ages of 5 and 14 years may only travel alone after reserving the Unaccompanied Minor Service. Please contact KLM Telephone Reservations to make such a reservation.
