Airline is now offering ‘adult-only zone’ on flights

Turkish-Dutch company Corendon Airlines has announced an 'adult-only zone', though it will not be available on all flights.

People have been moaning about kids on flights for years now, leading to countless arguments involving parents.

Unfortunately for those who want to have a kip on a flight, screaming babies or noisy kids are never too far away.

Heck, a group of travellers were met by a kid with a luminous hat on an overnight trip - no chance of any sleep on that particular flight, was there?

Footage of the hat in question shows a group of passengers trying to settle down on a late-night flight with low lights on before the camera pans over to a child wearing a hat blasting out pretty much every color you can think of.

It's clear that the reaction from the people on board wasn't the greatest as they tried to get some kip on the overnight flight.

As a result, you can probably see why many have been calling for adult-only planes, now, an airline has obliged by offering an 'adult-only zone' on flights.

Turkish-Dutch company Corendon Airlines has organized for an adults-only part of the plane where only people over the age of 16 are permitted.

The service will only be provided on the 432-seat Airbus A350 from Amsterdam to the Caribbean island of Curaçao from 3 November.

There will be 102 seats in total for this 'adult only zone', which will be positioned at the front of the plane and separated from the rest of the aircraft thanks to walls and curtains.

For the standard seats in this area of the plane, passengers will be expected to pay a reasonable €45 ($48) one-way, while extra large seats will set back travellers €100 ($108).

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

"We are also the first Dutch airline to introduce the only adult zone, because we try to cater to travellers who are looking for some extra peace and quiet during their flight.

"We also believe that this can have a positive effect on parents travelling with small children. They can enjoy the flight without worrying when their children make a little more noise."

Other airlines have offered similar alternatives to passengers hoping to escape children, with AirAsia's policy preventing people under the age of 12 from sitting in the first seven rows of economy.

However, this is only available on the Malaysian carrier's long-haul flights.

It will certainly be interesting to see if other airlines adopt something similar in the future.
