Long-haul, low-cost airline AirAsia X will introduce a Quiet Zone in its economy seating area starting in February 2013. The Quiet Zone will be located in rows 7 – 14 and travelers with children age 12 and under will not be permitted to sit there.
According to the AirAsia X website the Quiet Zone will offer “minimal noise with no disturbances” and “special ambiance lighting”.
While there is no extra charge for the Quiet Zone, AirAsia X’s standard seat selection fee of MYR 35 (USD $11) will apply.
AirAsia X is the second airline to introduce a child-free zone after Malaysia Airlines.
