Seat Fees

Please note: Effective October 25, 2017, Sun Country’s seat fees have changed, based on when the trip was booked or when changes (if any) were made to the booking.

Seat Fees for Bookings Made Prior to October 25, 2017

If a seat assignment was selected prior to October 25, 2017, there are no additional fees due. If a change is made to the seat assignment on or after October 25, 2017, there may be fees due. 

Seat Fees for Bookings Make On or After October 25, 2017

Seat assignments are available in advance for a fee or for free at the airport at the time of check-in.

Advance seat selection fees start at just $2 per flight segment. Fees are based on travel dates, the origin and destination of the flight, where the seat is located on the plane, and the Bundle & Go option purchased. Seats in the rear of the plane are less expensive than those in the middle section, or for the first row behind First Class or exit row seats.

Seat fees are shown during the seat selection process at the time of booking, online after booking via My Trips, or during online check-in. You must have a seat assignment in order to check-in online.

All seat pricing is per seat, per flight segment.

Unaccompanied Minor Service Fees

Sun Country charges a mandatory Unaccompanied Minor fee of $75 per family, per flight segment (this fee is in addition to the ticket price). This fee is payable through our Reservations Department or at the airport at time of check-in.

An advance conditional reservation is recommended per segment due to the limitation above, through Sun Country Reservations for a non-refundable fee of $125.
