Formalities, check-in, boarding…our tips and advice before your departure.
Make sure you have a valid ID document.
As a reminder, only official documents with a valid photograph will be accepted for identification. Hence, only passports and ID cards are authorized. Family record books, charity, club membership cards or travel cards will not be considered as relevant ID documents.
Foreign nationals must be in possession of a passport as residents’ permits alone will not be accepted. This document will be required both when checking in and boarding.
Please note that as of 15 January 2017, authorization to leave the country (known as an AST) will be necessary for a child to leave France without his or her parents. Depending on the destination country, the unaccompanied minor must be in possession of the below 3 documents:
- A national ID card or an individual passport (with a visa, if applicable) - The permet to travel form "l'autorisation de sortie du territoire" (in French) signed by a prent with parental authority - A photocopy of a valid identity document (or expired for less than 5 years) of the parent who provided his or her signature
