Traveler's Aid: Kids Flying Alone (12/14/2001)

Real Audio Listen in RealAudio      help Need audio help?

We've been talking about different generations traveling together this week - kids, parents and grandparents enjoying each other's company on the road or driving one another crazy. But sometimes, traveling together isn't an option. Sometimes you might have to send a child on a flight alone.

This past summer, the issue of kids flying alone made headlines when a couple of youngsters ended up in the wrong city. And September 11th has made many adults leery about flying - forget putting a kid on a plane. Is it safe for children to fly solo? And what are the airlines' policies regarding jetsetting youngsters? Our Travel Expert-in-Residence Rudy Maxa is going to help us sort it all out.

If you'd like us to address your travel questions or concerns, send us an email. Or, you can snail-mail them in. The address is The Savvy Traveler, in care of the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, California 90007. Or call us at 888-SAV-TRAV.
