Turkish-Dutch Corendon Airlines is making history as the first European airline to introduce dedicated seating zones exclusively for passengers aged 16 and above. The groundbreaking “Only Adult” zones will be tested on flights between Amsterdam and Curaçao starting in November.
Passengers in the “Only Adult” zone will have the privilege of enjoying a peaceful and quiet environment, as they will be secluded from the rest of the plane by walls and curtains. This separation aims to provide a tranquil atmosphere for travelers without children and business passengers.
Located at the front of the Airbus A350-900 aircraft, the “Only Adult” zone will include nine XL seats with extra legroom and 93 standard seats. This arrangement not only caters to childless passengers but also benefits families by allowing them to travel without the worry of disturbing others.
While the introduction of these dedicated seating zones may come as a relief to many passengers seeking a more serene travel experience, there will be an additional cost for those who wish to sit in the “Only Adult” section. A one-way ticket to this exclusive area will cost an extra 45 euros or approximately $49.
Corendon Airlines aims to provide extra peace of mind for passengers during their flights with this innovative seating arrangement. The airline also believes that this initiative can benefit parents traveling with small children, as they can now be assured of a quieter environment for their little ones.
Corendon Airlines is not the only airline recognizing the demand for quieter travel experiences. Singaporean low-budget airline Scoot has implemented similar arrangements, such as their Scoot-in-Silence cabins where passengers must be 12 years old or above.
The decision by Corendon Airlines to introduce dedicated seating zones reflects the evolving needs and preferences of travelers. As more people seek a peaceful and relaxing journey, airlines are adapting to meet these demands and provide exceptional customer service.
With Corendon Airlines leading the way in Europe, it is likely that other airlines will follow suit and introduce similar seating arrangements. The era of designated seating zones is dawning, promising a more tranquil and enjoyable journey for all.
