Request a Seat

When You Book

One of the perks of booking your flight directly with us – on our website or through our customer center – is that you can request the seat of your choice.

Keep in mind that if your flight was booked with a third-party provider (i.e. a travel agent, an online travel agency, or another airline), you will not be able to access the Manage Booking area of Icelandair's homepage. For any changes to your booking, please contact the provider that sold you the ticket.

If no seats are available for request at the time of booking, it does not mean that no seats are available on the flight. It just means that the remaining seats available on the flight must be assigned and allocated at the airport.

We do not overbook our flights. In most circumstances, if you have paid for your flight you will be guaranteed a seat on board.

When You Check-in

You can check-in online for flights to and from Europe and Canada within 36 hours of departure, and within 24 hours for flights to and from USA.

Online check-in is available for all destinations except for Aberdeen and Belfast, which are operated by Air Iceland Connect.

You can select your seat directly when you check-in online.

Please note: We reserve the right to modify seat requests at any time for operational and/or safety reasons.

Get more comfortable!

Icelandair now offers passengers the chance to get more comfortable in spacious More Legroom seats.  

Seat pitch on board Icelandair’s fleet is already above industry standard (a generous minimum of 31 or 32” / 79 cm to 81 cm), but with our new More Legroom seats you can secure yourself even more space. 

Sometimes the little things can make a big difference. If you’re looking for extra space and comfort, you can choose seats with a minimum of 34” (86 cm) pitch, or more than 40” (102 cm) in some instances.
