Seat selection

If I require special assistance do I still have to pay for seat selection?

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 or handling;
  • Customers who are blind, deaf or who have an intellectual or developmental disability;
  • Customers who require medical clearance such as customers travelling on stretchers;
  • Customers travelling with guide dogs or other service animals and falcons.
