Economy-class passengers planning international flights on EgyptAir can now keep adjacent seats vacant by booking them at a discounted rate as low as EGP 400 when boarding from Cairo International Airport, the national flag carrier said on Friday. The new service, which is available at check-in counters only, comes as part of plans to boost international travel following the pandemic-induced slump, allowing travellers to increase their personal space just four hours before the scheduled take-off time, provided that the adjacent seat is empty, according to Masrawy.
