Airlines will not need to spare middle seat to restart travel - EU

BRUSSELS, May 13 (Reuters) - The European Commission will say on Wednesday that airlines will not have to leave the middle seats empty but the wearing of masks onboard and in airports should be required as travel across the bloc restarts gradually.

The guidance for air travel is part of a wider package of recommendations the Commission is issuing on Wednesday to gradually lift border restrictions and cautiously restart travel stalled by the coronavirus pandemic in order to revive tourism.
