seating - pre-allocated seating - scheduled flights

Check-in for free when you choose and pay for your seat!

Whether you prefer a window, middle or aisle seat, our user friendly, 'click to sit' seat map allows you to sit wherever you like on the aircraft. Once you've selected a seat for a small fee, you can check-in online with nothing more to pay!

Why choose your seat and check-in online?

  • Peace of mind! You know where you'll be sitting and how close you'll be to other members of your party
  • By checking in online, you can print your own boarding pass and save time you would have spent at the airport check-in desk
  • If you have hold baggage, you can go straight to the fast-drop bag desk
  • If you're travelling with hand luggage only, you can go straight to airport security

Why can't I check-in or choose my seat for free?

Unlike some airlines, we do not offer un-allocated seating. Monarch will always allocate a seat for you. If you were able to check-in online without choosing your seat, and bypass the check-in desk at the airport, there would be no opportunity for us to allocate you a seat or print your boarding pass for you. This is why we ask you to choose your seat online when you check-in. Alternatively, if you don't want to pay to allocate your seat, you can still check-in at the airport free of charge.

how can I pre-book seats - scheduled flights?

There are 4 ways in which you can pre-book standard and extra legroom seats for your scheduled flight:

online - during your booking

You can pre-allocate seats, including selecting extra legroom, using our simple 'sit where you click' seat map. Choose the seats that you want and the fees will be added to the total cost of your booking.

online - after your booking

add seats

If you book using your customer login you can add seats to your booking at a later date. Click on 'my account', login and look up your booking. Then simply select to 'change' your flights and follow the process through. Again, you can use our simple seat map to choose your seats and then use a credit/debit card to pay online.

by phone

Our reservations agents can pre-allocate seats to your booking, either at the time of booking or after you have made a booking. To allocate seats after making a booking online, simply contact us and have your booking reference ready.

at the airport

You can choose to book standard or extra legroom seats at the airport on the day of travel, subject to availability. Visit the Monarch sales desk and have your booking reference ready. Availability is limited and so pre-booking is strongly recommended.
