Airlines create child-free zones on planes

Scoot Airlines follows Air Asia in introducing “quiet zone”



Singapore-based Scoot Airlines is the latest carrier to ban kids from one area of the plane, which it calls “ScootinSilence”, or the “quiet zone”. The zone has 41 seats in rows 21 to 25 and is charging SGD$18 (€10.50) for any passenger wanting to sit there.

Children under the age of 12 are banned from these seats, which also have an extra 10cm of legroom.

“No offence to our young guests or those travelling with them – you still have the rest of the aircraft,” Campbell Wilson, Scoot’s chief executive, says.

Air Asia, another budget carrier, made the first seven rows in economy into a kid-free zone in February.
