Add some peace of mind to your flight by selecting your preferred seat in advance when booking your flight or afterwards by using Manage Booking. You can also reserve your seat by contacting our customer service or your travel agent. If you’ve bought your flights from a tour operator, you can select your seat via the charter flights travel extras page.
Charges depend on travel class, seat type, ticket type, length of your flight and your frequent flyer status.
Seat types and prices
New! Economy Comfort
- Economy Comfort seats are located on the first five rows in the Economy Class cabin and they are available on all our intercontinental flights.
- Enjoy 8–13 cm (3–5 inches) of extra legroom, noise-cancelling headphones at your disposal during your flight plus priority boarding and fast exit for the flight in question.
- As of 19 February, we will provide you with a new amenity kit including a sleeping mask, earplugs, socks, toothbrush and toothpaste encased in a small cotton bag with a classic Marimekko pattern.
- By the end of March 2015 we will equip all Economy Class seats across our long-haul fleet (except for two Airbus A340-300 OH-LQG and OH-LQF aircraft) with new, comfier headrests. The seat itself is a standard Economy Class seat.
- Seats are located on exit rows; therefore the passenger must be eligible to sit on an exit row seat. Please note that not all exit row seats offer extra legroom – be sure to select the seat marked “extra legroom”.
- Offer up to 127 cm of legroom on short-haul and 140 cm on long-haul flights.
- Seats are in the front row of each cabin section.

Note: You can reserve a seat in advance for a flight operated and marketed by Finnair. If you are travelling on a flight operated by Finnair but your ticket has been issued by another airline, please contact our customer service or choose your seat at check-in. If you are travelling on a flight operated by Finnair’s partner airline, the rules of this airline apply (including baggage policies, purchasing travel extras and special service requests).
Terms and conditions
A requested seat cannot be guaranteed, as it may need to be changed for operational, safety or security reasons.
Passengers sitting on exit row seats must be at least 12 years old, speak and understand English or Finnish and they must be able to open the exit door if needed and assist the crew.
The fee is non-refundable if you cancel the flight, are involuntarily upgraded, or in case you are not suitable to sit in the seat type selected.
The fee may be refunded if you use your Finnair Plus points or an upgrade voucher to upgrade your travel class, or if you cannot be seated in the reserved seat or in a suitable alternative seat due to Finnair.
Changes of dates are possible according to the terms and conditions of your ticket. If you have reserved a paid seat and you change your flight times in accordance with your fare rules, you need to reserve your paid seat again for the new flight. You may then apply for a refund of the costs of the seat reservation on the original flight.
