Is it true I can go on an airplane by myself when I'm 17?

Yes of course you may fly alone at the age of 17...But you need to check with the airlines about their rules and documents required to avoid last minute hassles or difficulties at airport

Airline rules may vary but as per generally accepted guidelines children above 4 years may fly alone but have to pay full adult fares.

Kids falling under the age group of 5-8 can take a direct flights to a single destination only..no connecting flights...

Kids of 8-11 years of age may take connecting flights if they pay for airline escorts who'll help them in changing the flights

Those under 17 years of age flying alone on an international flight must have a signed note from a parent or responsible adult giving permission, destination and length of stay.

It all depends on the airline, but I'm pretty sure you're 100% old enough to fly alone.

I believe after the age 14 you can fly without an escort. Under that you pay extra to have a flight attendant escort you. The first time I ever flew I was 16 and flew by myself.
