What do XL seats include and who can use them?

XL seats are the seats situated at the emergency exit. Please bear in mind that, should you book an XL seat, you must be willing to assist the cabin crew in an emergency. That means you have to be able to follow the crew’s instructions in English. Our check-in agents and the cabin crew must verify the information you provide for safety reasons. We reserve the right to relocate you if necessary. 
Safety regulations prohibit the following passengers from sitting at the emergency exit:
  • Infants and children under 16 years of age
  • Passengers travelling with infants or children under 16 years of age
  • Women who are pregnant
  • Physically and/or mentally disabled passengers 
  • Passengers who are mobility-impaired due to age, illness, or body size
