Do you ever experience the inconvenience of having a crying baby nearby during a flight? Yes, you do, and it can undoubtedly be quite annoying. One of the European airline is taking a unique approach to prevent such situations by introducing designate seating zones exclusively for passengers age 16 and above.
Turkish-Dutch Corendon Airlines is testing the “Only Adult” zones on flights between Amsterdam and Curaçao starting from November, according to a press release.
This area will be locate at the front of the Airbus A350-900 aircraft and consists of nine XL seats with additional legroom and 93 standard seats.
There will be walls and curtains separating the “Only Adult” zone from the rest of the plane, making it ideal for travellers without children and business travellers who “want to work in a quiet environment,” as per press release.
Families can feel relieve knowing they won’t disturb passengers without children.
So, opting for a seat away from children will come at an additional cost.
For a one-way ticket, selecting the “Only Adult” zone will incur an extra charge of 45 euros or $49 or Rs. 4,050.
Choosing an XL seat within this zone will require an additional payment of 100 euros or $108 or Rs. 8,926.
Similar seating arrangements have adopted by many international airlines.
