Do you want to sit in the front row? Or would you like a window seat? Maybe you prefer a seat with more legroom next to the emergency exits?
Depending on the fare class of your ticket, this option is offered to you free of charge (for Economy Classic Plus and Flex fares) or for a small supplement (for Economy Light, Saver, Classic, Young and Military fares): choose your seat and fly the way you want! To secure the best seat once you have bought your ticket, proceed immediately with your choice and save money compared to purchasing your seat at the airport.
AUTOMATIC SEAT ASSIGNMENT
If your fare class does not include free seat selection and you decide not to purchase your preferred seat, the system will assign you one free of charge during check-in, based on availability and operational and security policies.
HOW CAN I PROCEED WITH THE SEAT SELECTION?
Once you have purchased your ticket, if the fare class does not provide for free seat selection, you can purchase your preferred seat in the following ways:
- At any time by calling the ITA Airways Customer Center
- Online at itaspa.com
- during online ticket purchase
- in the "My Flights" section (up to 48 hours before flight departure)
- during online check-in (48 hours prior to the departure of your flight and for flights to/from the USA 24 hours prior to the departure)
- at the airport, before the flight, at the check-in desks or at the self check-in stations where available.
WILL I BE ABLE TO TRAVEL FOR FREE ALONGSIDE MY FAMILY/FRIENDS?
The system of free allocation of seats, taking into account the availability of seats based on availability, operational and security policies, will try to seat all passengers included in the same booking next to each other.
For adults traveling with children under the age of 12 under the same reservation, the allocation of seats close to the minor is guaranteed for at least one of the two parents or for the companion. Seat allocation is possible when purchasing a ticket through the ITA Airways Customer Center; for purchases made in a travel agency or online, seat allocation can be made:
1) during online check-in;
2) after purchasing the tickets, by contacting the ITA Airways Customer Center at the toll-free number 800 936090 from Italy and from abroad by sending an e-mail to BookingsChangesRefunds@itaspa.com
In the event that online check-in fails to assign seats adjacent to the minor for at least one parent/companion, you can call the Customer Center for Italy at 800 936090, and from outside of Italy by sending an e-mail to BookingsChangesRefunds@itaspa.com, or contact the check-in desks at the airport directly for assistance in allocating nearby seats.
Regardless of the free allocation of nearby seats for the minor and the parent/companion, if you would like to choose specific seats for greater comfort during your flight, you can always purchase the "Seat selection" service.
PASSENGERS WITH PHYSICAL, COGNITIVE AND SENSORY DISABILITIES
Passengers with physical, cognitive and sensory disabilities and a companion can pre-select seats at no cost by calling the number for Special Assistance, from Italy 800 936090, or from outside of Italy by sending an e-mail to BookingsChangesRefunds@itaspa.com or at the airport (subject to availability). The companion's seat will be adjacent to the disabled passenger.

I SELECTED MY SEAT BUT I THEN REQUESTED AN UPGRADE TO THE PREMIUM ECONOMY/BUSINESS CLASS. CAN I GET A REFUND?
Yes, in the event of upgrading to a Higher Class (Premium Economy and/or Business Class) you can request a refund
Yes, of course, but some requirements must be met, you must:
- be 18 years or older;
- be able to understand the Italian and/or English language;
- have full mobility and availability, in the event of an emergency, to provide assistance for any rapid evacuation of the aircraft.
To comply with the safety obligations imposed by the Italian Aeronautical Authority, passengers cannot occupy seats located on the emergency exits if they:
- have reduced mobility;
- have visual or hearing impairments;
- are traveling with children or minors;
- are clearly pregnant;
- are seriously overweight (passengers with limited movements that could hinder access to the emergency exits, who need an additional belt on board);

Furthermore, hand luggage and all personal effects must be placed only in the overhead bins.
If you do not meet these requirements, you will not be able to use the seat in front of the emergency exits and you will be assigned a different seat. The price paid for seat selection will not be refunded.
