Seat Selection

Window or aisle?

Would you prefer a window or an aisle seat? Air Transat's Seat Selection service makes your life easier by letting you choose the seat you want.

To view aircraft seating plans, click on one of the following aircraft:
A310-300; A330-200; A330-300.

Reserve your seat when purchasing your tickets, up to:

  • 2 days prior to departure for flights departing from Canada, for most destinations;
  • 3 days prior to departure for flights departing from all European cities.

We recommend you arrive at the Air Transat check-in counter at least three hours prior to flight departure. When checking in, be sure to specify that you have selected your seat. Seat selection must be claimed at least 75 minutes prior to departure. In the event they are not claimed, the seats can be released without possibility for refund.

Pre-assigned seating for passengers with special needs

Air Transat's Information and Seat Selection Centre ( (44) 20 7616 9187 / 00800-28 38 76 73) pre-assigns appropriate seating for all passengers with special needs up to 2 days prior to departure for flights departing from Canada, up to 3 days prior to departure for flights departing from all European cities. Once a passenger has identified him/herself as a person with special needs, their call will be transferred to a dedicated agent within the department. The passenger will be asked to provide any relevant information, so that together they can discuss and determine the special seating requirement. All efforts will be made to accommodate the passenger with a suitable seat most appropriate for their needs. The seat selection fees may be waived, and passengers may be asked to provide a medical letter supporting their request. We encourage our passengers with special needs to contact our Information and Seat Selection Centre directly to speak to our agents in order to discuss their specific requirements. People who are hearing impaired can call 1-866-234-5136 (TTY) toll free within North America or 514-906-5196 in the local Montreal area.
