Seat selection

You can choose your specific seat on the plane for free at check-in.

If you have a connecting flight with Azores Airlines, TAP or a more complicated routing (for example, a multi-city ticket with several Azores crossings), changing your seat online is not usually possible.

However, you can request a specific seat on the plane at no charge during check-in at the airport.
