According to the World Health Organization, physical distancing helps slow the spread of Covid-19, as it reduces close contact between people.

In light of this, Lufthansa and Eurowings will be introducing further measures to ensure that physical distance is maintained between passengers during their journey. Starting March 27, neighboring seats onboard economy class and the premium economy will be blocked and remain empty on all flights from Germany. This also applies to flights within the country.

Meanwhile, this regulation will not apply on flights to Germany as the airlines prioritize getting travelers back home as soon as possible.

In addition, all Lufthansa and Eurowings flights at domestic airports will only be handled at building positions wherever possible, given the existing airport infrastructure and official regulations. This measure intends to help passengers avoid having to take bus trips. In the event that this is not possible at short notice, twice as many buses will be operating. These measures will apply until April 19.

Other measures in place include increased distance between passengers at check-in counters or when boarding and disembarking from the aircraft.
