Amadeus Tip

To price an unaccompanied minor (UM), use the passenger type code Unn (nn= age)

  • For information on passenger type code UM, refer to the Amadeus Help page HE PTC (look for the list of passenger type codes)
  • For information on pricing passenger type code UM, refer to the Amadeus Help page HE FXPor HE FXX
  • for some airlines, the format to use for pricing might be specific. To verify for which airline the process is specific, verify the GGAIR pages: GGAIRxxMinor (XX for the company code: For example GGAIRBAMINOR for British Airways).
