You plan to select a seat in the exit row.

In the unlikely event of an evacuation you will be expected to assist in the opening of the emergency door.

Therefore passengers sitting in an exit row must:

  • be over the age of 12 years
  • be fit, strong and able to assist in the unlikely event of an evacuation of the aircraft during an emergency
  • be able to understand instructions given in English, Dutch or French
  • be willing to assist in the unlikely event of an emergency
  • has the capability to perform the required tasks without assistance of a companion, parent or other relatives
  • not have a condition or responsibility that might prevent them from performing these functions or cause them to suffer bodily harm while performing these functions
  • not be pregnant
  • not be travelling with someone who needs their assistance in an emergency
  • not be travelling with a baby
  • not be travelling with a pet in the cabin

Our airport staff/cabin crew will verify that each passenger meets the emergency exit row seating requirements. Our airport staff/cabin crew is entitled to allocate another seat to passengers not meeting the necessary requirements.

Please also note that any hand luggage must be stowed in the overhead lockers because no objects must be in the seating area or under the seats of an emergency exit row.
