Amid reports of route cuts and staff retrenchments, 1time is keeping customer king.

Tourism Update reports that for an additional R50 per hour, passengers travelling with 1time can now enjoy more legroom following the airline's recent launch of its premium seating option.

Passengers have the option of choosing between emergency exit and non-emergency exit premium seating. However, for emergency exit premium seats, the airline's terms and conditions state that no infants or special needs passengers will be able to check into these seats.

The premium seating option is sold as a ‘value-add' option to an actual seat at a fixed additional cost. The pricing for the premium seat option varies according to the sector flown and is available on a ‘per leg' basis.

For ‘at home' check-in, only passengers who have purchased the premium seat value-add can check into a premium seat and it will be blocked off for all other passengers.

Premium seats are not linked to inventory, or to an actual seat, but instead will be a record of how many are available for purchase tracked on a per flight basis.
