seat reservation


transavia.com offers travellers the option of paying extra to reserve their seat up to 48 hours before the scheduled departure time for their flight. This option is available on most of transavia.com’s routes but just to be sure that it is available for your destination, you will always be informed of this during the reservation procedure.
In selecting your seat, you can choose from a seat with extra or standard legroom and a seat next to a window, on the aisle, or in the middle of a row. You can also determine the location in the cabin: front, middle or back. The choice is entirely up to you.

  • seat with extra legroom: € 15,- / one-way flight
  • seat with standard legroom: € 7,50 / one-way flight

You may choose to reserve a seat for everyone in your group or only some of them: this choice is entirely up to you.
