Airline To Offer Adult Only Zone For Quiet Flights

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.

St Julian's Celebrate Becoming Quintuple Champions

San Ġiljan has achieved an unprecedented accomplishment by securing all five major honours in a single season, a remarkable achievement in the local sports scene. 

They have now added the BOV Premier Division title to their collection, along with previous victories in the Knock-Out, President’s Cup, Winter League, and Enemed Cup, making their season truly memorable.

This marks their second consecutive double victory and their third in four years, showcasing their dominant position in local water polo. San Ġiljan’s influence in the local water polo scene during the latter years of the new millennium has been undeniable.

The focal point of discussion revolves around their recent success over the Balluta Bay team, which granted them their 13th league championship in history. Their victory in the crucial match of the Play-off series, securing a 2-0 win, exemplified their determination and dominance over their fierce opponents.
