Corendon Airlines introduces adult zones on flights
In a bold move to enhance the in-flight experience for certain passengers, Corendon Airlines is set to introduce an "Only Adult" zone on specific flights, beginning with its thrice-weekly non-stop service from Amsterdam Schiphol Airport to Curaçao International Airport on November 3rd. This innovative concept is designed to cater to passengers aged 16 and above who prefer a child-free environment during their journey.
Premium options at Corendon Airlines
The airline, a Turkish-Dutch leisure carrier, has configured its Airbus A350-900s for this unique offering. The forward section of the aircraft, housing 93 seats, will be exclusively dedicated to passengers seeking a tranquil atmosphere without the presence of children. In addition to these exclusive seats, nine extra-large seats with increased legroom are available for an additional surcharge, creating a premium economy experience within the "Only Adult" zone. This distinct area, comprising 102 seats out of the total 432 on the A350, will be physically separated from the rest of the cabin with walls and curtains, providing an enclosed and serene environment.

The motivation behind this novel approach is to offer passengers the option to travel in an environment where they can better relax and enjoy their flight. Business travelers, in particular, can take advantage of this adult-only zone to focus on work without potential disruptions from more active or vocal children. Likewise, passengers who may be more sensitive to disturbances caused by children can now have a more peaceful and enhanced flight experience.
Parents are not left out of the equation either; those wishing for a brief respite from the demands of parenting can opt to book seats in the "Only Adult" zone, creating a win-win situation for both child-free travelers and families on board.
While Corendon Airlines is not the first airline to experiment with the concept of segregating passengers based on age, it is pioneering such an initiative in the Netherlands. Major carriers like KLM, Transavia, and TUI have not yet followed suit, making Corendon's move a distinctive one in the industry.
The initial rollout of the "Only Adult" zone will be limited to flights on the Amsterdam-Curaçao route. However, the airline has expressed its commitment to expanding this concept to more routes if the trial period proves successful and there is sufficient demand for such exclusive zones.
Despite potential concerns about segregating passengers based on age, the concept of the "Only Adult" zone appears relatively fair. Passengers who genuinely prefer not to be seated near young children now have the option to pay a premium for the privilege of sitting in a designated section away from families. With only 102 seats available in this exclusive zone, it is clear that this is a paid privilege rather than a widespread offering, catering to a niche group of travelers.
This initiative may alleviate concerns for traveling families as well. Parents can have peace of mind knowing that their children's natural exuberance during flights is less likely to disturb other passengers in the "Only Adult" zone. Additionally, flight attendants may find their service streamlined with potentially fewer complaints from passengers disturbed by children.
In conclusion, Corendon Airlines' introduction of an "Only Adult" zone represents a unique and innovative approach to meeting the diverse needs and preferences of air travelers. As the industry continues to evolve, it will be interesting to see if other airlines follow suit and if this concept becomes a staple feature on various routes, providing passengers with a range of options for their in-flight experience.
