A leisure airline based in Turkey and operating from Amsterdam called Corendon Airlines is adding an innovative passenger experience.
Corendon Airlines Introduces Adults-Only Seating Zone
In November 2023, a leisure carrier called Corendon Airlines will be launching flights between Amsterdam (AMS) to Curaçao (CUR). The airline will be leasing an all-economy Airbus A350-900 from Spanish charter carrier World2Fly.
With the launch of this flight, the airline is introducing a new concept that no other airline has yet to implement – Introducing an ‘Adults-only’ zone on board the cabin where passengers above the age of 16 can select the seat.
Based on the announcement, the airline promises that this zone is intended for travelers traveling without children and for business travelers who want to work in a quiet environment. At the same time, the introduction of the Only Adult zone also has a positive effect on parents with children.
Adults-Only Zone will be on The Forward Section of The Aircraft
The Aduls-Only zone will be set up in the forward section of the A350-900 and consists of nine XL seats with extra legroom and 93 standard seats.
The zone is physically separated from the rest of the aircraft by means of walls and curtains, creating a shielded environment that contributes to a calm and relaxed flight. In order to book the seats, it will cost as below:
- A one-way price on the standard seats costs €45
- A one–way price on the extra legroom seats cost €100
This seems to be a Nice Concept From Corendon Airlines
With the introduction of an adults-only seating zone, this is how Atilay Uslu, founder of Corendon Airlines, tells about the new concept:
“On board our flights, we always strive to respond to the different needs of our customers. We are also the first Dutch airline to introduce the Only Adult zone, because we try to accommodate to travelers looking for some extra peace of mind during their flight, we also believe this can have a positive effect on parents traveling with small children, who can enjoy the flight without worrying if their children make a little noise .”Atilay Uslu, founder of Corendon Airlines
In my opinion, I think this is a great idea to be implemented as there are many passengers who would prefer a quieter cabin while traveling on a long-haul flight.
Given that the actions of kids and infants can be very unexpected and you do not know who will be sitting next to you on your flight, I think spending some extra amount on a front-row seat will be a win-win situation for all passengers.
A leisure airline called Corendon Airlines will be introducing an adults-only seating zone concept on its upcoming flight between Amsterdam and Curaçao. The airline will convert the 102 forward cabin seats into an adults-only zone where passengers 16 and above can choose for an extra fee.
This is definitely a fresh concept implemented by an airline to offer a win-win situation in terms of onboard passenger experience.
