Seat Reservation

This page is only available in the current language.

Flying with your loved ones? At the airport check-in, we will try our best to accommodate your seating needs. However, our check-in staff can only assign seats from the remaining available seats on the plane. To make sure that you will enjoy your flight altogether, we recommend that you reserve your seats now to guarantee your entire party is seated together.

You can easily reserve your seat online while booking your flight or after booking – up to 3 hours prior to departure on domestic flights and up to 6 hours prior to departure on international flights.

Standard seat reservation fees:

International flights: from 2.99 € per person and one way

Domestic flights within Türkiye (Turkey): from 12,99 ₺ per person and one way

Severely disabled passengers along with one chaperone can book their seats via our Customer Service Center free of charge. Please note that passengers with reduced mobility can only reserve windows seats (A/F) in advance. Other seats might be allocated at the airport check-in desk in consideration to the type and/or grade of the physical restriction.

You can reserve your seat either online or after booking under “MyBookings” or via our Customer Service Center up to 3 hours before departure on domestic flights and up to 6 hours prior to departure on international flights. According to availability, you can also reserve your seat directly at Check-In.
