Seat reservation

Would you like to reserve a specific seat? You can do so when booking, but also at a later time via My Transavia.

How do I reserve a seat?

You can reserve a seat either directly when booking your flight, or later by logging into My Transavia. It is possible to reserve a seat until 30 hours before your flight departs. If you do not reserve a seat, you can choose from the remaining available seats when you check in online.

If you check in at the airport, we will assign you a seat. This may mean you and your travel companion(s) will not be seated next to one another.

How do I reserve a seat if I booked my flight through a travel agent?

If you booked through a travel agent, you can reserve a seat from 3 weeks before you fly until 30 hours prior to departure. You can do so via My Transavia or via your travel agent’s website.

You can book an extra seat by contacting our Service Centre. Be sure to reserve a seat for yourself and one for your luggage, so that you can be sure of sitting next to your possessions.

Why am I unable to reserve a seat?

How wide are the aircraft seats?

To guarantee safety on board, it is important that the armrests of the seats are able to freely move up and down. The space between the armrests on our aircraft seats is 42 cm. If this does not provide enough space for you, please book an extra seat by contacting our Service Centre.
