Singapore Airlines’ advance seat reservation charges


Singapore Airlines have advised that they are now charging travellers for advanced seat selection on their ‘Economy Lite’ fares. Prices start from USD$15 per flight for ‘standard seating’ on flights from NZ to Singapore and from Singapore to Europe for bookings made in K, V, N & Q classes.

‘Forward Zone’ seating on flights is charged at USD$25 per flight – these are located among the front rows of the Economy Class cabin, and passengers who are seated in this section will generally disembark the plane before other passengers in Economy Class.

Extra Legroom seating is charged at USD$90 per flight and provides more legroom in Economy and Premium Economy Class on Singapore Airlines and in Economy Class on SilkAir.

Advance Seat Reservation for Economy Class Standard or Flexi fares is complimentary after ticket purchase and is complimentary for all fares when online check-in opens, from 48 hours before departure.
