We all love when the seat beside us is left free on a flight, but one airline has introduced a new fare that guarantees an empty middle seat beside you on a short-haul trip. There will be no elbows encroaching on your space with AerSpace, the new fare offering from Irish airline, Aer Lingus, and this new premium travel experience can be booked now for flights commencing on 1 September.
AerSpace guests flying to select destinations across the UK and Europe will be guaranteed an aisle or window seat on the first row of the aircraft, with the middle seat left unoccupied for a roomier travel experience. They will also enjoy reserved cabin space in the bins directly overhead, as well as complimentary lounge access, Fast Track security and priority boarding. They will get to bring a free 20kg bag, and enjoy a complimentary snack and beverage from the in-flight menu.
The new fare offering promises a seamless travel experience for those who require more space and comfort, whether it be for business or leisure purposes. “We are proud to launch AerSpace in response to feedback from our guests seeking a more premium and spacious travel experience when flying short-haul with Aer Lingus,” says Susanne Carberry, Aer Lingus’s director of network revenue and loyalty.
The space will cost you though; the new fare is the most expensive out of the airline’s short haul offerings. It’s available to book now for travel from 1 September, and you can visit Aer Lingus here for further information.
