The nation’s largest airline, American Airlines, says it charges $150 for children ages 5 to 11 to fly as unaccompanied minors.

Starting September 3rd, that age goes to 14-years-old.

The airline says extending the fee to more youths will ensure the safest possible travel for them.

United Airlines charges $150 each way for minors 5 to 11.

Delta and Jetblue currently charge $100 each way for those 5 to 14.

Southwest charges $50 each way for kids 5 to 11.
