The International Air Transport Association (IATA) to be against social distancing onboard flights

According to a statement made by IATA, the association supports the wearing of face coverings for passengers and masks for crew while on board aircraft, but it seems to be against the measures to leave middles seats empty.

Based on their statement, keeping the middle seats empty will not provide the recommended distance for social separation as the average seat width is no more than 50 cm.
