No kids allowed: Airlines to capitalise on child free travellers with adult-only seats

Scoot Airlines is second Asian company to ban children from certain seats…

If you stand in line to board a plane willing that screaming child to be seated at the opposite end, you may be pleased to hear that for an added fee, some airlines will now guarantee you child free seats.

Singapore Airline's budget carrier, Scoot, has become the latest company to offer child-free zones of their flights. Kids under the age of 12 will be banned from sitting in a certain area, which all also have slightly more legroom.

The service called 'ScootinSilence' will offer 41 sets on selected flights, for an upgrade of $18 SGD (£9).

This will be second airline in the region to introduce the option, with Malaysian Air Asia launching 'quiet zones' on selected flights to China, Taiwan, Japan, Korea, Australia and Nepal.

Elsewhere is Asia, Malaysian Airlines banned infants from their first class areas after passengers complained of the noise from crying babies.

Not jetting off to Nepal soon? Never fear, other airlines could soon follow suit, as a survey last month found that unruly children remain the biggest inflight annoyance, ahead of drunken passengers and surly cabin crew.

Nearly a quarter of those in the research said they would pay up to £50 per return flight if they could guarantee to sit in a child-free zone. Coming to a Ryanair flight near you soon? Probably.

Would you pay extra to go kid free? Let us know in the comments box below…
