United Airlines is changing one of its policies for children flying alone.

The airline says from now on, children between the ages of 5-11 years old must be with an adult on flights that include a connecting flight.

They can fly unattended on non-stop flights. It does charges $150 extra, each way, for children who do fly alone.

United's new policy for young children is similar to policies at US Airways and Southwest.
