Airlines have grounded much of their fleet – but there are now preparations to get their planes back in the air over the next few weeks. 

But Geneva airport’s biggest airline, EasyJet, says it may not sell the middle seat on its planes to maintain social distancing – but ticket prices will have to go up.

The Geneva based International Air Transport Association says with less seats available, prices may have to rise by around 50%. 

But not all airlines have the same policy – Michael O’Leary who runs Ryanair says keeping seats unsold is an idiotic idea.
