Turkish-Dutch Corendon Airlines is innovating to minimise disruptions caused by children’s noise during flights by introducing an “only adult zone” for travellers without kids on routes between Amsterdam and Curaçao, starting from November 3rd.
The airline’s press release emphasises that this dedicated zone is designed for child-free travellers and business passengers seeking a tranquil workspace.
Importantly, the initiative aims to alleviate concerns of parents by reducing potential fellow-passenger reactions to children’s restlessness or crying.
The exclusive adult-only section, located in the aircraft’s front portion, will feature nine spacious seats with extra legroom and 93 standard seats. The zone will be physically segregated from the rest of the cabin using partitions and curtains, creating an enclosed environment conducive to a serene flight experience.
For a one-way ticket, seats within the adult-only zone will require an additional fee of 45 euros (approximately $49), while the larger extra-legroom seats will come at an extra cost of 100 euros (about $108). These seats are available for purchase to travellers aged 16 and above.
