Atlanta-based Delta Air Lines plans to keeping middle seats empty through the end of September, WSB-TV reported.

It’s just one of the steps the airline is taking as it aims to make people feel safe enough to fly in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.

Delta officials said it also plans to soon start testing all employees for the coronavirus and antibodies. So far, 10 Delta employees have died of the virus, WSB-TV reported.

Passengers are required to wear masks, too.

Other handouts are common on flights as well.

“They actually gave on the trip a little bit of water and a snack and sanitizer stuff in a bag for everybody,” traveler Yevette Joyner told WSB-TV.

The airline also said it will keep capacity at 60% in the main cabin through Sept. 30 with plans to add more flights through the summer.

Delta’s CEO, Ed Bastien, said the goal is to have about 40%-50% of the airline’s regular flight schedule out of Atlanta’s airport in July.
