UK low-cost carrier Jet2 today announced the launch of what they’re calling their “Stress Less” check-in system.
This new set-up will allow passengers to pre-select seats on all flights. The check-in option is only free on 11 routes, however, including flights between Leeds and Amsterdam, Düsseldorf, and Paris; flights between Manchester and Amsterdam and Paris; and Newcastle-Amsterdam flights. On other routes, seat reservations will cost from €4 (for standard seats) to between €15 and €23 for seats with extra legroom.
Additionally, passengers traveling between UK airports and Amsterdam will be able to check-in online from 28 days to five hours before departure.
Advance seat selection is an especially nice perk for families and groups traveling together. Along with Jet2′s new handheld device, it’s another way that Jet2 is setting itself apart from the low-cost pack.
But a whopping €23 for a seat with extra legroom to Tenerife? That’s how low fare flights turn into average fare flights, buddy.
