What are the conditions for 'Exit Row Seats'?

In order to sit in an Exit Row seat, you must satisfy the following general criteria applicable:

  • Be 16 years or older
  • Not have any permanent or temporary impairment or any condition that requires special assistance or be travelling with another party that has such an impairment or condition (e.g. deaf, hearing impaired, blind, vision impaired, any strength or mobility limitation, intellectual impairment or travelling with a service dog)
  • Be willing to assist in the unlikely event of an emergency
  • Not be seated with an infant
  • Not require the use of an extension seat belt
  • Not be elderly

It is also not recommended that a guest in their third trimester of pregnancy (that is, after 28 weeks) sits in an exit row.

Passengers who do not meet the requirements above are obliged to ask to be re-seated.  The inability to fulfil the criteria may not be observable by the cabin crew so guests must take the initiative. The crew reserves the right to ask a guest to be change seats if they deem the guest to be unfit to act in the unlikely event of an emergency or unable to fulfil NokScoot’s or general flight safety requirements.
