To anticipate this, an airline makes a new breakthrough. Corendon Airlines, became the first airline in Europe to have a special seating zone for passengers aged 16 years and over.
According to the airline, Corendon Airlines is testing an Adult Only zone on flights between Amsterdam and Curaçao starting in November. This area will be located at the front of the Airbus A350-900 aircraft and consists of nine XL seats with additional legroom and 93 standard seats.
“We are also the first Dutch airline to introduce an Adult Only zone, as we seek to appeal to travelers seeking extra peace of mind during their flights,” said Atilay Uslu, founder of Corendon, in a statement.
Additionally, there will be a wall and curtain separating the Adult Only zone from the rest of the aircraft. This policy is ideal for tourists traveling without children and business people who want to work in a quiet environment With the new seating arrangements.
passengers with infants or children can also breathe easier knowing that they will not disturb passengers without children.
“We also believe this can have a positive impact on parents traveling with small children. They can enjoy the flight without worrying that their children are getting noisy,” added Atilay.
Unfortunately, sitting away from children will incur additional fees. For one-way tickets, this zone will incur an additional fee of 45 euros, or around Rp. 743 thousand. For XL seats, it costs an additional 100 euros, or around Rp. 1.6 million.
Besides Corendon Airlines, there are other international airlines that have implemented similar seating arrangements on their flights. Like the Scoot-in-Silence cabin belonging to a low-cost airline from Singapore, Scoot. Passengers in the Scoot-in-Silence cabin must be 12 years of age or older.
