Choose your seat

Fly with Etihad Airways and you’ll always find the perfect spot on board. Choose your Economy seat in our Forward, Middle, or Rear zones. If you’d prefer some extra space to stretch out, book an Extra legroom seat, and we’ll even plant a mangrove in the Etihad Forest to contribute to offsetting your carbon emissions. You can also book an Economy Neighbour-Free seat to keep up to three seats next to you empty.   

And if you’re an Etihad Guest member, you can book your favourite seat for free, depending on your Tier.

If you’re flying from Russia, only Russian bank cards will be accepted at the airport. To pay for an extra legroom seat with an international card, visit  Manage your booking or call us
