Passengers can now buy more legroom in the long-haul economy class of Austrian Airlines. When checking in via the web, customers can secure the coveted seats in the emergency exit row for 70 euros per seat, provided the passenger fulfils the requirements for the allocation of seats in the emergency exit row. Security requires that we allocate these seats only to passengers who are at least 16 years old, have no physical disabilities and do not travel with babies under the age of two or with animals in the cabin. Customers can easily book this increase in personal comfort by using their credit card.
