Extra Seat for Passenger (EXST)

Page latest updated:

An extra seat may be booked when more space is needed for passenger’s personal comfort.

Extra seat can only be confirmed on AY operated and marketed flights. Extra seats are not possible on interline connections with other carriers.

The same airfare will be charged for the additional seat as for the passenger itself. Only published fares without discount may be applied and taxes will be exempted for the extra seat. YR and YQ charges must be collected twice on the routes where applicable. Also value-added tax (VAT) must be added to Finnish domestic fare.

The passenger and the extra seat will be issued on one ticket.

Extra seat will not increase baggage allowance so the allowance of one ticket in the chosen fare type applies.

  • Before departure to a round-trip journey: One ticket will be issued and base fare will be added as Q-surcharge to the fare calculation.
  • After departure: Reissue the ticket and add a OW fare (with the same fare type as the original) from the lowest available booking class as Q-surcharge to the fare calculation, according to the travel direction. Also a new YR must be collected when applicable.

Window or the middle seat will be booked for the passenger. Due to security reasons aisle or exit seat may not be used. Extra seats are always side-by-side, frontal extra seat is not possible.

In case of cancellation, the ticketed fare conditions will apply also for the whole ticket including the extra seat charge.

Note: Extra seats for medical reason, please contact Medadesk.
