Yes, you can make your seat selection when you make your booking. Choose an aisle or window seat, or sit in a row with friends and family. A fee may apply and seat selection is subject to availability.

Economy Starter Plus, Economy Max passengers and Business Class passengers can select any standard seat for no extra charge, subject to availability.

For a slightly higher fee you can select a seat up the front of the aircraft, which should help get you on and off the aircraft slightly faster.

Extra legroom seats are also available for a fee. These are located at the exit rows and require passengers who can assist in an emergency. Check if you are eligible to book an extra legroom seat.

Need more room?

You must be able to lower both armrests and not compromise any part of adjacent seats to ensure safe and comfortable seating during travel. Please contact us to purchase an extra seat, or where available, a business class seat if you need more room.

If you need to keep your leg extended throughout your flight due to injury or any other reason, please also contact us to purchase the full number of seats you need to make your journey. For safety reasons, only passengers with full mobility can sit in the exit rows.

Contacting us will allow us to allocate the seats you’ve purchased side by side so you can enjoy a comfortable flight. Seat dimensions for each aircraft type can be found in the table below.
