Singapore Airlines' budget offshoot Scoot is the latest airline to embrace a child-free zone, banning children from its new 'ScootinSilence' economy cabin.
Located at the very front of the economy section, the self-contained cabin has 41 of Scoot's Super and Stretch extra-legroom seats and has now been declared off-limits to passengers under 12 years.
The seats can be booked from an additional S$18 (A$16) on top of a regular economy fare.
"ScootinSilence is the perfect option for guests seeking an exclusive cabin, extra legroom and confidence that under 12’s will be seated in another part of the aircraft" said Scoot CEO Campbell Wilson.
"No offence to our young guests or those travelling with them", he added, "you still have the rest of the aircraft to choose from."
Competing low-cost carrier Air Asia X already offers a similar Quiet Zone in the first seven rows of economy, while Malaysia Airlines has declared a kid-free zone in the first class cabin of its Airbus A380 and Boeing 747, along with the small economy cabin at the rear of the A380's upper deck.
