Seat request

If you are travelling in Suites, First Class or Business Class, you can request for a specific seat any time from the time of booking. If you are travelling in Economy Class, you can also request for a specific seat if you have purchased your ticket through our website.

If you purchase the ticket for your infant through our website, we will assign you a seat at a bassinet point, depending on availability.

We will do our best to meet your seat request. However, we may occasionally need to reassign seats, due to operational constraints and rescheduling. We appreciate your understanding in these special circumstances.

Special meals

If you have special dietary requirements due to medical or religious reasons, we offer a wide selection of special meals to meet your needs. You can make a special request through our website if you purchased your ticket online.

Passengers with nut allergy


Passengers who have a nut-allergy could request for nut-free special meal to be catered on his or her flight. The nut-free special meal does not contain peanuts, tree nuts - Almonds, Brazil nuts, Cashew nuts, Hazelnuts, Macadamias, Pecans, Pistachios and Walnuts, and their derivatives.

We are unable to guarantee a nut-free in-flight environment. Firstly, nuts and nut-derivatives are commonly used in the preparation or manufacturing of inflight meals world-wide (except for Nut-Free Special Meal). Secondly, we are also unable to prevent passengers from bringing and consuming their own nut-products on-board our flights.

Should you require a nut-free special meal, please contact your travel agent or the Singapore Airlines office to arrange for a nut-free special meal at least 48 hours before flight departure.

Once again, we request that you take all necessary precautions bearing in mind the risk of exposure. If you have any concerns about your fitness to travel, we recommend that you discuss your travel plans with your doctor.

Lastly, due to the heightened security environment, passengers should obtain a doctor’s certification for their medication or syringe. All medication should be professionally labelled with passenger’s name and clearly identified to eliminate any difficulties passing through security check-points.
