Booking with Emirates

Seat selection

Do I have to pay for seat selection for infants, children, or unaccompanied minors?

As part of our Emirates family-friendly policy, customers traveling with infants in the same booking (PNR) are exempted from seat selection charges for all regular seats, bassinets, and adjacent seats on bulkhead rows, even if these seats are in a preferred area. Customers opting for other Preferred and Twin seats before online check-in will be subject to seat selection charges.

We will always aim to seat families with children together. If children traveling with adults wish to select seats before online check-in opens, they are entitled to a 50% discount on fees for regular and preferred seats. Twin seats are not subject to a child discount and Extra Legroom seats can’t be selected by children due to safety regulations. We will do our best to ensure children traveling alone are seated comfortably during their flight. You don’t need to pay for seat selection for Unaccompanied Minors; Emirates will assign suitable seats free of charge.
