Advance Seat Selection

Travelling on Air Canada, Air Canada Express or Air Canada Rouge? Select your seats online in advance with our easy-to-use seat map.

You can select your seat online if:

  • You book your flight on, and
  • You’re travelling on:
    • An Air Canada or Air Canada Rouge flight, or
    • An Air Canada Express flight operated by Jazz, Sky Regional,
      Air Georgian Ltd. or Exploits Valley Air Services Ltd.

Seat selection is not available on codeshare flights.
If you didn't book your flight at, call Air Canada Reservations or contact the travel agent who handled your booking.

If you are travelling with children under the age of 12, you will receive complimentary seat assignment ensuring children are seated adjacent to an adult/guardian travelling with them. You should always indicate in your booking that you are travelling with children.  

You may contact Air Canada Reservations directly to be seated, or go to the ‘Manage My Bookings’ tab to review your reservation 36 hours after booking to validate your seat assignment.
