Written consent should be in the form of
1) a notarized letter of consent signed by the non-traveling parent (preferably in English and dated within one year of travel)
2) a death certificate for the non-traveling parent or
3) proof that the parent traveling has sole custody of the minor(s).
The parental consent letter should include: Who, What, Where, When, Why, and contact information for the absent parent(s).
Any air carrier can ask for this documentation and deny boarding if you do not have it.
