Extra Leg Room / Emergency Exit Seats

For safety reasons you must meet certain Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) safety requirements to sit in an  Emergency Exit row seat. The passenger must be at least 16 years old on the day of travel, and they cannot be travelling with infants. They must also be fit and able bodied as in an emergency situation they will need to be able to open the exit door unaided.
