Air Canada Expands Preferred Seating Options


Air Canada has launched an enhanced Preferred Seats program that offers customers the choice of more seats with additional legroom aboard its North American flights while also making it easier to book a Preferred Seat through multiple channels, including the Web, airport kiosks and mobile devices.

Details on Preferred Seats are available at .

“We have reconfigured our narrow-body aircraft with more Preferred Seats, which provide up to an additional four inches (10.16 cm) of legroom, and are making it easier for customers to conveniently purchase these seats when booking or at any time prior to boarding, including through our web site, our airport kiosks or mobile devices,” said Craig Landry, vice-president of marketing at Air Canada. “Most Preferred Seats are located near the front of the aircraft, enabling customers to disembark more quickly at destination.”

Preferred Seats typically provide 35 inches (88.9 cm) of legroom compared to standard Economy seats that offer between 31 and 33 inches (78.74 cm – 83.82 cm).

Seat charts showing Preferred Seat locations on Air Canada aircraft are available at Preferred Seats are also available on Air Canada mainline wide-body aircraft and Embraer 175 aircraft operated by SkyRegional for Air Canada Express.
