Corendon Airlines Becomes First European Carrier To Offer Child-Free Seating Zones

The days of crying babies spoiling much needed rest on commercial flights may finally be coming to an end.

Turkish-Dutch Corendon Airlines has just announced that it will introduce child-free zones to one of its routes beginning this November, becoming the first European airline to do so.

Following in the footsteps of other international carriers like AirAsia, Corendon’s “Only Adult” zones will be available to passengers over the age of 16 on flights between Amsterdam and the Caribbean island of Curaçao.

This special area will be located at the front of each aircraft, with 93 seats separated from the rest of the plane by walls and curtains.

Seats in Corendon’s Only Adult area will cost travelers an extra €45 (almost $49 USD) each way. Further upgrades in the designated section include nine seats that offer extra legroom, for an additional €100 (almost $109 USD).

In a statement posted to the company’s website, Corendon Airlines founder Atilay Uslu—who already owns adult-only hotels in locations like Curaçao, Bodrum, and Ibiza—said the new offering looks to “accommodate travelers looking for extra peace during their flight.”

Uslu added that parents traveling with children can also rest easier.

“They can enjoy the fight without worrying if their children make a little noise,” he said.

A survey of the American public indicates that similar changes may be welcome by travelers in the U.S. as well.

The study, conducted on behalf of Newsweek by Redfield and Wilson Strategies, found that nearly 60% of 1,500 respondents agreed that child-free zones on planes and trains “would be a positive thing.”
