Preferred Seats

Do you know the benefits of purchasing preferred seats when you book your Air Canada flight?  Preferred Seats are in exit rows, in select bulkhead rows and in the first few rows of the cabin on some flight.  Here are some of the priviledges you can enjoy:

Enjoy some extra space

  • Get up to 10 cm (4 in) of extra space between seats
  • Bulkhead and exit row seats offer more knee space than a regular seat

Settle in sooner**

  • Board early, relax and settle in comfortably
  • On arrival, exit sooner – and get on your way quicker

Secure overhead bin space

  • Enjoy early access to precious overhead bin space
  • Keep your belongings within easy reach throughout the flight

Altitude members and customers travelling on a Latitude or comfort fare can select a Preferred Seat at no extra cost or at a reduced price. It is recommended to purchase your Preferred Seat early in advance as availability is limited! Alternatively, you can select your Preferred Seat when you check in for your flight online, on your mobile device, or at an airport check-in kiosk**.

** Preferred Seats purchased through an agent at the check-in counter or at the gate are not eligible for early Zone 3 boarding.
