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.”
The Corendon Airlines is reportedly introducing an "Only Adult" zone on some of their flights — for passengers aged 16 and above who prefer a child-free environment.— Breakfast Television (@breakfasttv) September 6, 2023

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.
