FAQ n.115321

What seating arrangements will be in place to ensure physical distancing?

Answer

In line with passenger load, cabin configuration and mass and balance requirements, airlines should ensure, to the extent possible, physical distancing among passengers and arrange the seat allocation accordingly. 

If physical distancing cannot be guaranteed because of the passenger load, seat configuration or other operational constraints, passengers and crew members on board an aircraft should adhere at all times to all the other preventive measures including strict hand hygiene and respiratory etiquette and should wear a medical face mask. 

A) Can I sit with my family /partner/ friends? 
Family members and individuals travelling together as part of the same household can be seated together even in cases where other passengers are spaced across the aircraft for physical distancing purposes.
