Jet Airways to let economy users pre-select seats for a price

jetJet Airways said it will now allow economy class users select their seats at the time of booking via the company’s website.

Earlier, this option was available only to those flying higher classes.

However, economy class fliers will have to shell out Rs 300 extra to pre-select their seat at the time of booking. International travellers will have to pay Rs 500-1,750 to do so.

In case the selected seat is one with extra legroom, the charge wil be higher at Rs 600 for domestic flights and Rs 1,000-3,500 for international.

Seats can be reserved up to 24 hours prior to departure. Within 24 hrs of the flight departure, seats will be assigned free of charge, Jet Airways said.

In case the booking has already been made, guests can use the ‘Manage Booking’ option on and the mobile app to reserve their preferred seats.

JetPrivilege Platinum members of Jet Airways’ loyalty and frequent flyer programme, may continue to block available bulkhead seats or any other seats free of cost.
