Info to Family Seating

Air Cairo will do everything possible to ensure children under the age of 12 are seated close to their accompanying family member. If you are travelling with children or infants, we recommend booking early and selecting seat assignments when you book. You can select seats through AIRCAIRO.COM, APP, Call center or your travel agent. 

There may be additional charges for seat assignments depending on which fare you select. If you do not select your seats in advance, we will do our best to find adjoining seats for your family on the same reservation in the cabin you booked. However, available seats may be limited at that time
Air Cairo will make sure all reasonable effort is made by its staff, flight attendants and through in-flight procedures, to seat children under the age of 12 next to their accompanying adult.
