Early booking KLM seats going to cost money
AMSTERDAM, WILLEMSTAD – Tourist class passengers of KLM and Air France will have to pay extra if they want to select a seat more than 30 hours before departure. Now it is still free, but for long distance flights, with effect from 26 January, it will cost 20 euros each way.
The measure will be in force starting December 1 and includes destinations in the Caribbean. Only if passengers select their seats after the 30 hours before their flight, they can still choose a seat for free.
This was announced by director of KLM Netherlands, Harm Kreulen. Through this adaptation, KLM says that there will be more seats available for late bookers to choose from.
“We will make an exception for frequent flyers with a Flying Blue Elite status, for groups of more than nine people and families with young children. KLM ensures that, for example, families can sit together, free of charge,” said Kreulen.
