Czech Airlines Innovates its “Seat Selection” Service

July 17, 2017

Czech Airlines extends the existing “Seat Selection” service by offering new features. Economy Class passengers will now be able to select their seats:

  • At the time of ticket booking
  • Freely from all available seats
  • Without limitations and irrespective of ticket price package

When purchasing their tickets, passengers will be able to decide whether to purchase a preferred seat in front rows and by emergency exits or to select one of the available unoccupied seats. Until now, it has only been possible to purchase preferred seats together with tickets. The selection of unoccupied seats was first available 24 hours after the ticket purchase.

As an innovation, passengers with tickets purchased under the most economic LITE price package, who were not able to select seats aboard aircraft before, will now be able to choose their seats as well. The service is provided for a fee of EUR 5 or the local currency equivalent. Passengers with tickets purchased under the PLUS and FLEX price packages can select their seats free of charge, with the exclusion of preferred seats which are available for a fee. The most comfortable seats are already included in the price of tickets purchased under the BUSINESS LITE and BUSINESS price packages.

The “Seat Selection” service is only available on Czech Airlines operated flights upon purchases made via Czech Airlines’ website, Contact Centre and ticketing offices, as well as upon purchases made via travel agencies and ticket selling points.
