Can I pre-purchase specific seats on my flights?

 Please see Internal Information at the bottom of the page for 2022 Fly Med season Flight Seat Booker schedule.


How you pre-purchase flight seats varies depending on whether you are travelling on a chartered or scheduled flight.


Flight Seat Booker on selected charter flights

If you are booked on one of our TUI chartered flights, you will be able to pre-purchase your seats through My P&O Cruises. Flight Seat Booker will open approximately 14 weeks prior to departure and close approximately one week prior to departure.


To access Flight Seat Booker log on to My P&O Cruises using your cruise booking reference. At the top of the page you’ll find an option called "Flights", from there you need to go to the bottom of the page and select "TO BOOK YOUR SEATS, PLEASE CLICK HERE". You will now need to log into the flight seat booking tool using your cruise booking reference.  If flight seat booker is not available to book when you click on the login button it will tell you. This will show your flight details and the "Book Seats" button will be displayed. You will then be able to select and purchase your seats.

Emergency Exit seats

These are subject to availability and are only available to those guests who are fully mobile and over 16 years of age. You will be asked to confirm that you comply with the relevant terms and conditions prior to booking your seats. The airline reserves the right to move guests from Emergency Exit seats if they feel that the safety of guests and crew may be compromised.

Changes to your booked seat

You can amend seats booked through Flight Seat Booker up until 8 days prior to departure. If your new seats are of greater value than your original seats selection, you will be required to pay the difference.  No refunds will be given for seat selection of a lesser value.

If you have pre-booked seats on a scheduled flight and wish to amend your selection, please contact the airline directly for assistance.

Reduced Mobility Seating

Our chartered flights have a limited number of seats which are designated for those guests with reduced mobility. These seats are assigned one week prior to departure. Once we have received all Medicla and Accessibility questionnaires they will be reviewed and priority will be given to those with the greatest need.

Should you require a questionnaire please call our Customer Contact Centre on 03453 555 111 (local call charges apply), or contact your travel agent. Mobility questionnaires must be returned no later than 14 days prior to departure.

British Airways (BA) - All programmes

Pre-purchasing seats depends on the ticket type which can be identified on your E-Ticket. If your flight information includes an “airline locator” (airline booking reference), you will be able to pre-purchase seats from approximately 30 days prior to travel. To pre-book your seats, visit ‘Manage My Booking’ on the British Airways website and follow the instructions. Please note that additional charges may apply.

If your flight details do not include an airline locator, then you will be booked on a British Airways “group seat”, in which case we can reserve your flight seats approximately four days prior to departure. If you have any specific requests, please call our Customer Contact Centre who will be able to assist you, otherwise seats will be allocated when you check-in at the airport.
