Emergency Exit Seat

Emergency exit Seat

Emergency Exit seat are seat(s) located by the exit doors of an airplane. A number of passengers like to occupy the seats due to extra legroom which adds to the comfort when seated on these seats. Sadly, there are categories of passengers who are not allowed to be seated on the emergency exit seat. Such passengers are:

  • Pregnant woman
  • A Mother with infant
  • Children under 15 years of age
  • Unaccompanied minor (UM)
  • Passenger with mobility challenge or wheelchair passenger
  • Passenger with weight issues and lack agility
  • Sick passenger
  • Passenger with hearing impairment
  • Passenger with speech issue
  • Unruly passenger
  • Passenger who is unwilling to assist
  • passenger who does not understand the language of the crew
  • passenger who is unwilling to adhere to the crew’s instruction

Someone may be wondering why the exclusions, the reason is that occupying those seats come with safety responsibilities arising in an emergency situation where passengers seated on those seats much be willing to take instructions from the Cabin crew in order to render assistance to fellow passengers. So when next you are seated on such seat, you may not only be enjoying the comfort but have assumed a responsibility to assist others should the need arise (God forbids such need).
