That depends on the airline. Each airline has its own rules regarding "UMs" (unaccompanied minors) depending on the number of stops, length of flights, etc. Some airlines will allow children to travel unaccompanied as young as age 5, particularly if it's a non-stop flight. Check with the different airlines that fly the routes you're interested in for their rules and, of course, expect to pay a surcharge for this service.

However, if you're talking about newborn infants, I believe most airlines leave that up to the discretion of the parents and their doctor.

The minimum age of child to have ticket for travel by air in India is 2 years. Children who are below two years can be carried by an adult and will not need a ticket.

There is no regulatory minimum age in the US, but it is possible that some airlines could have their own minimum age rules. In general, it is presumed by the airlines that all passengers are healthy enough to travel, and those that are questionable, should have a Doctor's permission to travel. If you have questions about a specific airline, you should contact them directly.

No, but most airlines require that a baby be at least 7 days old, unless you have a medical certificate

There is no real minimum age to be a parent or grandparent. It all depends on when things happen. There was a girl in Mexico who had a child at the age of 5, and when her child turned 5, this child had a kid. So she became and grandmother at the age of 10.

The minimum age a child can babysit in Rhode Island is twelve years of age. It is recommended that for very young children, an older teen babysitter is best.

There is no such age actually but for your own sake you need to be mature. But as per the rules, if you are not adult then, you can travel plane with escort. For that, you need to go through the proper channel.

The minimum age to babysit will depend upon the child you will be watching (such as age and behavior). A good age to start trying to babysit is 13 years of age.

Any child to travel alone with the guidance of the airline is called an "UNACCOMPANIED MINOR". Lufthansa is one of the best airlines when it comes to the UM service. The minimum age to travel alone is 5 years and the maximum age is 18 years. Normally a fee is charged for the service. The UM is taken care of at from the check-in and handed over to the crew who then hands over to special handling department on arrival an they hand over to the guardians/ parents on arrival. If the child is in transit then they are again handed over to the next flight crew and so on.

In my opinion, the minimum age is 11. At Red Cross the minimum age to get a babysitting certificate is 11, so technically it is legal.

I am not familiar with the species of child jacuzzi. Please, contact your LOCAL health department.

I don't think there is any legal minimum age for a child to take public transportation without an adult. However, the common sense age for most parents would be 11 years old if the child is traveling with friends, or 13 years old if the child is traveling alone.
