Turkish airline introduces flights with child-free zones

The Turkish airline Corendon Airlines was the first in Europe to introduce child-free zones on its flights. For an additional fee, passengers can get seats where only adults can sit, the airline said in a press release.

The KID-FREE service provides accommodation on the plane in a special area separated from others by a strong partition and curtains. Passengers under the age of 16 are not allowed in these seats, so those who do not want to sit next to a naughty child or a screaming baby will be able to enjoy peace and comfort.

Atilai Uslu, founder of Corendon, said the child-free zone is designed to “meet the needs of travelers looking for extra peace of mind during their flight.” Also, parents will be able not to worry about the fact that their babies are making a little noise.

At the moment, the Turkish airline has announced the launch of a KID-FREE zone on flights between Amsterdam and the Caribbean island of Curacao, starting in November. Only adults will be able to sit in the front of the cabin, while the rest of the plane will still accommodate children.

There are only 93 places in the exclusive area without children, so it is important to book them as early as possible. The cost of the service will be an additional 45 euros, one way. If additional legroom is required, passengers will have to pay an extra 100 euros per flight. The Corendon brand also offers “adults only” hotels worldwide, including Curacao, Bodrum and Ibiza.

Although Corendon was the first in Europe to launch child-free zones, other international airlines already offer such a service on their flights. AirAsia X has a so-called quiet zone on long-haul flights for passengers aged 12 and over. Singaporean budget carrier Scoot also offers its version of the ScootinSilence service.

Corendon Airlines is a Turkish airline based in Antalya. It has 32 aircraft at its disposal, which have been operating regular and charter flights since 2004.
