More about seating

About seat fees

Fee or free? Whether seat selection is free or comes with a fee depends on the type of fare you purchase and your VIPorter status. If you already have a booking, the easiest way to check is through My Bookings. Start by clicking the Add/Change Seats link in your flight Options checklist, follow the instructions and we’ll tell you whether there is a fee or not.

Seat selection fees are charged per passenger for each flight segment and are inclusive of taxes. Flight segments are identified by a change in flight number; each flight number represents one flight segment.

Please note that fees apply to flights operated by Porter and are non-refundable. Seat selection is not available for flights operated by our interline partners.

Save with bundles

Bundling two or more add-ons together, like seats and baggage, is a smart way to save. Bundles are offered at a discount and can be added at the time of booking on flyporter.com or within 24 hours of your flight when checking-in online. Bundle inclusions and price may vary based on your fare type, bundle type and the route they are purchased for. To learn more about bundles, visit our Optional Services and Fees page.

Assigned seating

If you choose not to purchase a seat assignment in advance, you will be assigned a seat by our system at no cost when you check in for your flight, whether online or at the airport.

When you check in online, you will be able to view your assigned seats and upgrade if you want to. Seat assignments cannot be changed at the airport or once a boarding pass has been printed.

If you are a VIPorter member, you can select your seat preference (aisle or window) through your VIPorter account. We will attempt to accommodate your preferences when automatically assigning seats.

Travelling with children

We know where you sit as a family can make a difference to your trip so we aim to make it a little easier.

If you don't select your seats in advance, where possible we'll automatically reserve suitable seats for you approximately 24 hrs prior to your scheduled departure. If you can't all be seated together, we'll make reasonable efforts to ensure each child under 14 years of age is seated with an adult travelling on the reservation. Therefore, it’s important that you indicate in your reservation at the time of booking that you are travelling with young children.

As an alternative, you can contact our Call Centre and make a request to be seated with your children. As long as adjoining seats are available at the time the request is made, we will assign them to you without charging any seat selection fees.

If you have a child travelling alone using our unaccompanied minor service, we will choose a suitable seat for them and look after them during the flight.

Learn more about travelling with children.

Disability assistance accommodation

There's no charge for selecting your seat if you have a specific seating requirement because of a medical condition or physical disability.

To reserve your seat, contact our Call Centre at 1-888-619-8622 at least 48 hours in advance of travel and advise the nature of your disability and assistance required.

If you did not select your seat in advance, we will make reasonable efforts to accommodate your request. Find out more about disability assistance.

Choosing a seat with a partner airline

If you make a booking on flyporter.com or by calling our Call Centre, you can choose your seats through My Bookings. Seat selection is available for flights operated by Porter only.

Seat selection on partner airlines is not currently available. We suggest you contact them directly to indicate your seating preferences or to choose your seat.
