To regain confidence in the airline industry, changes must be made. Some suggest leaving middle seats empty, but this provides insufficient social distancing, and can do more harm than good for airlines, as passengers still prioritize pricing above all else. Others suggest rotating middle seats to face the other way with added partitions, but this could take more room than expected and still leave passengers facing those in the next row. Is there a proper, cost-effective way not only to protect passengers, but also quickly earn back trust and revenue?

IpVenture has announced its semi-private cubicle airline seats that enable airlines to return to full seating capacity with more comfort and room, the company said.

With the seat design, passengers would increase comfort, privacy and accessibility, maintaining overall coach seating capacity, providing individual arm rests and more leg room.

Rows of seats are set at angles. Seats have their partitions to create individual semi-private cubicles. Attendants can serve passengers, and passengers can access their seats, both without pushing past others. For more illustrations, visit the IpVenture website.

With these innovations, passengers will be far better protected from airborne pathogens, even as coach returns to full capacity. IpVenture has designed this staggered seating to fit inside standard-size fuselages.
