Turkish Airline Launches Child-Free Zone, Offers Passengers ‘Extra Peace of Mind’

It’s time to say goodbye to hours of crying babies and toddler tantrums on flights — at least on an airline.

Turkish leisure airline Corendon Airlines announced that it would come to the aid of passengers who are afraid of the thought of flying with children by introducing a child-free zone.

The “Adults Only” route is available to all passengers over the age of 16, allowing them to reach their destination with peace of mind.

Accordingly Euro newsthe quiet flight will be available on routes between Amsterdam and the Caribbean island of Curaçao.

The child-free zone is designed to “accommodate travelers who seek extra quiet during their flight,” said the airline’s founder, Atilay Uslu.

“On board our flights, we always strive to meet the diverse needs of our customers,” he said.

He added that the service will not only be a relief for people without children. “We also believe this can have a positive impact on parents traveling with young children,” he said.

“They can enjoy the flight without worrying if their kids make a little noise.”

The new Adults Only zone will be introduced in November.

The adult area will be located at the front of the aircraft and 93 seats will be reserved for passengers paying for this service.

However, you cannot use this privilege for free – the single journey costs an additional €45 (AUD 75). There are also nine extra legroom seats, a service that will cost you €100 (AUD$168).

Although this is not the first airline to offer an adults only zone, it is the first European airline to offer this service.

In 2013, AirAsia introduced a quiet zone reserved for passengers over the age of 12 on its long-haul A330 flights.

Likewise, Singapore-based low-cost airline Scoot offers its own silent service, ScootinSilence, on all its flights, which is only available to passengers aged 12 and over.

Who knows, maybe Australia will introduce an adults-only zone next?
