Kids-free flights

People are desperate for kids-free flights and now there’s a new airline that’s all-too-happy to oblige.

The airline is called Corendon Airlines, and it’s offering a section where children are simply not allowed.

Turkey-based Corendon Airlines is launching an adults-only zone on flights between Amsterdam and Curaçao in the Caribbean this November.

According to Corendon’s founder and CEO Atilay Uslu, this is also beneficial to families.

“[This area is designed] for travelers looking for some extra peace of mind during their flight,” Uslu said.

“[But] we also believe that this can have a positive effect on parents traveling with small children.”

Located at the front of Corendon’s Airbus A350 jets, the area is only available for people over 16.

Corendon says it has two types of adults-only sections on its aircraft, but unfortunately there’s no way to know which one you’ll find until you’re on the plane.

If you’re ‘unlucky’, you may end up on a flight where the adults-only zone is separated from the rest of the plane by a simple curtain.

However, if you’re lucky, you may find yourself on a plane where there’s a physical wall (and a door) between the adults-only area and regular economy.

The best part is that this section isn’t even that small.

You’ve got 93 regular seats and nine extra-large seats with more legroom.

The first adults-only flight launches on November 3, with prices for a one-way ticket in the kids-free section starting at $445 for the regular seat, and $496 for the larger seat.

If you’re okay with taking the gamble, you can save a bit of cash and book a ticket for $396.

But you might end up next to a screaming child or two.

Adult-only flights are not unheard of, and they’re becoming quite popular.

Singapore-based low cost airline Scoot is currently offering a ‘Scoot-in-Silence’ section on its planes.

Meanwhile, Malaysia Airlines made the upstairs economy section of its Airbus A380 jets adults-only on some of its flights.
