Jetstar has announced that it will give passengers travelling on Jetsaver or Jetsaver Light fares the option of selecting a seat in the first three rows of the aircraft for an additional charge.

“The introduction of ‘Up Front Seating’ is in direct response to our customers who have been asking for this product as they like to sit close to the front of the plane with one of the benefits being that they can get in and out of our aircraft quicker,” said Jetstar’s executive manager commercial David Koczkar.

The option will be available for Australian passengers at a charge of $5 per sector on domestic services and $15 per sector on international services across all aircraft in the fleet. On two class A330 services, Up Front Seating will be in the first three rows of economy class.
