Pre-reserving general seats

For convenient travel, Caribbean Airlines offers the option of pre-reserving your seat. Our reservation agents and travel service providers (Travel Agents) will be happy to make these arrangements for you. Additionally, this option is available to our customers who book on our website and for customers who utilize web-check-in 24 to 3 hours prior to departure.

Requests can be made up to 11 months before your departure date, provided you have a confirmed booking with us. Certain seats are not available for advance seat selection (inclusive of bulkhead seats, emergency exits seats and seats before and after the emergency exits seats) and will only be assigned at the airport. We encourage our taller passengers to arrive early at check-in and we will try our best to assign seat with extra leg-room once you meet our aviation requirements; this is also subject to availability.

Pre-reserving infant seats

An infant (a child up to two (2) years of age), will be entitled to a seat once the child’s fare has been purchased. In all other cases the parent/guardian will be required to hold the infant for the entire journey, in accordance with FAA/CAA laws. Bassinets and sky cots are not available on any of our aircraft types.

Securing your reserved seat

You are advised to observe the required three (3) hour check-in requirement for international flights and two (2) hour check-in requirement for domestic flights. International flights close one hour prior to the scheduled departure time and domestic flights close forty (40) minutes prior to the scheduled departure time; if you do not reach the airport in ample time you run the risk of losing your preferred seat.
