Seat selection

Do I have to pay seat selection fees if I require special assistance?

Seat selection charges are applicable before online check-in opens for customers who require special assistance. However, if you choose not to select and pay for your seat before online check-in opens, we'll automatically assign you a suitable seat before departure free of charge. This includes:

  • Unaccompanied minors,
  • Customers using an oxygen concentrator or other medical equipment,
  • Customers with reduced mobility who require special assistance,
  • Customers who are blind or deaf or who have an intellectual or developmental disability,
  • Customers who require medical clearance (such as customers traveling on stretchers),
  • Customers traveling with guide dogs or other service animals or falcons.
