Preferred seats on intercontinental flights

Choose a seat that fits your needs. KLM offers 2 kinds of Preferred seats: seats in a row of 2 (mostly located in the back of the aircraft) and front section seats (located behind the Economy Comfort zone). They both have their own advantages. A seat in a row of 2 provides more privacy if you’re travelling together with someone. A seat located behind the Economy Comfort zone allows you to be amongst the first passengers to disembark the flight upon arrival. The seats are only available on intercontinental flights and have standard legroom and recline. They are all equipped with a personal entertainment screen.


  • Standard legroom (79 cm/31 inch)
  • In the first rows behind the Economy Comfort zone;
  • or in a row of 2 in Economy Class
  • 9-11 inch personal entertainment screen
  • Ergonomically designed
  • Only available on intercontinental flights

Reserve your favourite seat

You can reserve your Preferred seat when booking your KLM flight. You can also log in to My Trip at any time to make your reservation. On each flight, there is only a limited number of preferred seats available. So if you want to be sure of this seat or if you’d like to be certain you’ll sit next to your travel companion, don’t wait too long with arranging it.
