Emirates extends in-flight safety by allowing passengers to book empty seats next to them for $55

In the COVID world, it is all about staying cautious. And allowing you a chance to do that is Emirates with its all-new offering. The airline is now enabling economy class passengers to book adjacent empty seats for additional social distancing amid the pandemic.

The passengers with a confirmed economy class booking will be able to avail the option and pay for up to three empty adjoining seats before boarding their flights. There’s a small catch, though – the said seats will not be available to pre-book and can only be booked at the airport check-in counter ahead of flight departure.

The option is ideal for “couples who wish to have the entire row to themselves,” parents traveling with infants, or “those who simply want the added assurance of more space while traveling during pandemic times,” as stated by the airlines.

Additionally, Emirates also has the extended option to book extra legroom seats, located in the exit row and twin seats, found right at the back of the Emirates Boeing 777 and on the upper deck of the airline’s Airbus A380s; and preferred seats located in the first section of the cabin and on the upper deck of A380 2 class.

The adjoining seats are subject to availability and can be booked on select Emirates flights onward $55. Carefree flying just got better!
