Blocking middle seats on planes reduces risk
of COVID-19 transmission, CDC study says

Empty middle seats have been a sticking point for some on
commercial flights since the pandemic began. But little by
little, major airlines have unblocked the middle seat to allow
more travelers to fly.

Now, new data from the Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention suggests this might not be the safest route. The
data was based on laboratory modeling of SARS-CoV-2
(the virus that causes COVID-19) on single-aisle and twin-
aisle planes. It found that leaving the middle seat vacant
reduces the risk of contracting COVID-19 by 23 percent
to 57 percent when compared with having a full plane.

For a single passenger in the same row and two seats away
from someone infected with COVID-19, the risk of exposure
to the virus was reduced by 23 percent. However, blocking
the middle seat reduces the risk to other passengers by up to
57 percent when several people aboard the aircraft are infected.
