Preferred Seats

Secure your preferred seat in advance, ideally by buying it together with your ticket. The earlier you book, the better seat you will get. You can also reserve your preferred seat later using the MY BOOKINGS online application, via our Contact Centre and Ticketing Offices or by contacting your ticketing agent. Last minute preferred seat purchases are available during online check-in, i.e. from 36 hours to 1 hour before departure.

You can buy preferred seats together with tickets issued under the LITE, PLUS and FLEX packages. Passengers with tickets purchased under the BUSINESS LITE and BUSINESS packages have the preferred seat option included in the ticket price.
