Airline introduces adults-only zone on one of its long haul flights

Airline introduces adults-only zone on one of its long haul flights

Corendon Airlines has allocated dozens of seats to people over the age of 16, but they won't come cheap.

People have complained about children on planes for as long as commercial air travel has been around.

Unless you book a seat in First Class (and even then it's not guaranteed), it seems to be unavoidable to be around screaming and crying kids during a flight.

It's not the kid's fault that they cry, but that doesn't help when you're five hours into a flight and haven't had a single wink of sleep.

Some passengers have been so exasperated by the seemingly unending wails of a baby that they've called for planes to have adults-only sections.

Well, one airline has listened to the demands and provided just that.

Euro News reports the Turkish-owned Corendon Airlines has organised for an adults-only part of the plane where people over the age of 16 can fly in peace.

The service will only be provided on the 432-seat Airbus A350 from Amsterdam to the Caribbean island of Curaçao.

It will be located at the front of the plane.

There will be 93 seats on offer in this zone, which will be separated from the rest of the plane thanks to walls and curtains.

However, this privilege doesn't come cheap.

It's being reported that it will set you back an extra €45 one way.

That's a high price to pay for no screaming or crying, however some people would say that's money well spent.

There are also a few seats in this zone that come with extra leg room and that will cost you €100.

Corendon founder Atilay Uslu said in a statement: “Onboard our flights, we always strive to respond to the different needs of our customers.

“We also believe this can have a positive effect on parents travelling with small children. They can enjoy the flight without worrying if their children are making too much noise."

Corendon Airlines will kick off the initiative in November and it will become the first European airline to offer a child-free zone.

AirAsia, Scoot and IndiGo have all introduced similar child-free or 'quiet' zones.

AirAsia's policy prevents people under the age of 12 from sitting in the first seven rows of economy and is available on the Malaysia carrier's long-haul flights.

Who knows whether this will be the way of the future for airlines as more people look for companies who provide a safe haven from screaming or crying children.
