Can I book a seat in advance? Do I have to pay for it?
Yes, you can select a seat in advance for an extra fee when travelling in Economy, Premium Economy, or Business Class. Charges depend on the selected seat type, your ticket type, the length of your flight and your frequent flyer status.
You can reserve your seat in advance when reserving your flight or afterwards via the Manage booking page. You can use the service for flights 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 choose your seat at check-in or contact our customer service. The easiest and fastest way to contact us is via chat.
If you are travelling in Economy or Premium Economy Class and prefer not to pay for the seats, you can choose a Standard seat free of charge from those that are still available at the time of check-in. In Business Class, you can choose a Standard or Preferred seat free of charge at the time of check-in.
If you are travelling with children and you decide not to reserve seats in advance, the system will make sure each child (under 12) is seated at least with one adult from your group. The system will also prioritize groups to be seated together based on availability, starting with bookings with the most passengers.
