From Sept. 1, Aer Lingus will allow passengers to have an empty middle seat, to guarantee that there is no one sitting next to them on certain flights.

The change is part of the airline’s premium AerSpace initiative.

“AerSpace guests have reserved seats in row 1 of our most popular routes, leaving the middle seat free, and so there is more space to work or just to relax as they fly,” Susanne Carberry, director of the network of sales and loyalty at Aer Lingus told the Independent.

AerSpace is available on certain short-haul flights, according to the website of the company. The passengers are also able to reserve cabin space directly above their seat and have access to the priority boarding and free food and drink on board.

The special seating is available only on the first two rows of the aircraft, the Independent reported.

According to the Aer Lingus website, travelers who book with AerSpace will also have access to the airline lounge and fast-track airport security.
