Kenya Airways (KQ) is now allowing travelers concerned with social distancing to book an extra seat or row, a move also meant to increase ticket sales and boost their revenues.
As it launched the service dubbed Economy Max for flyers who want extra space for in-flight safety, passengers are allowed to book a seat or the row next to them between 48 hours and three hours of traveling.
Passengers can purchase seats online and pay via credit card. Once purchased, a confirmation email is sent to them with information about their flight and seat allocation.
Domestic passengers will pay $15 for an extra seat and $20 for two.
Travelers from or to Nairobi from the Americas will pay $120 for one seat, and $230 for two.
Those heading to or from Europe will pay $80 and $150 for one and two seats respectively, while for the Middle East and Asia pay $60 and $110.
Passengers flying to African destinations will be charged $45 for an extra seat and $80 for two.
