As part of its coronavirus safety measures, Turkish-German airline SunExpress is giving passengers the option to book a vacant middle seat for a small fee, the company said on Wednesday.
The offer applies to all connections in the SunExpress network, starting from 59.99 Turkish liras ($8) on domestic routes and €39.99 ($47) on international routes, the airline said in a statement.
Peter Glade, the chief commercial officer at SunExpress, said space was a major concern for many passengers, with many frequently expressing the wish for a guaranteed empty middle seat.
We kindly ask all passengers to carry their tickets/e-tickets on them at all times in case they need to present it to the authorities on their way to the airport. You can find further information on our website: https://t.co/fJoIWDxxJX— SunExpress (@SunExpress) November 18, 2020

Last year, the airline saw a passenger load factor of 83% and carried an impressive total of over 10 million travelers.
