Italian design company Avio Interiors has dreamed up with two airplane seat design concepts that could keep travelers safe or at least safer in a post-pandemic world.

The concepts, spotted by The Drive, could be one possible solution to the uncomfortable reality of somebody sneezing or coughing next to you on your next flight that is, if well ever experience air travel again.

The companys first Glassafe concept is a a kit-level solution that can be installed on existing seats to make close proximity safer among passengers sharing the same seat, according to the companys website. In other words, transparent blinders on either side of the seat.

The unusual transparent materials still allow passengers to avoid or minimize contacts and interactions via air, [] so as to reduce the probability of contamination by viruses or other.

The Janus Seat is a two-faced seat that could allow three passengers to be separated with a shield made of transparent material that isolates them from each other, creating a protective barrier for everyone, according to the website.

Unlike the Glassafe concept, the three-seat configuration would require a complete retooling as it isnt a simple add-on kit for existing airplane seats.

The concept comes after businessman Rick Pescovitz wore a personal, transparent tent in the window seat of a commercial airliner back in early February to avoid contracting the deadly virus.
