If you hail from, or are planning to travel in the US soon, we’ve got some good news for you. Budget airline IndiGo just announced that they’ll be introducing ‘Quiet Zones’ on all their flights.
So long to the days of screaming kids kicking your seats, pulling your hair and delaying your flight to paradise (or work). Yes, controversial it may be, but many travellers and oodles of airlines say that the ‘adult-space only’ trend gives hard-working business travellers a better opp to get their work finished, or more importantly, have a nap between meetings. Some however, are not happy, especially parents.
This is the first US carrier to have introduced the change. International airlines including the likes of Malaysia Airlines, Air Asia and Scoot airline from Singapore, have already introduced similar policies over the last few years.
An airline has introduced #childfreeflights and I feel like the world is answering many peoples prayers right now.

How are #childfreeflights "discriminatory"? You do realise that there are other – like ALL other – flights to choose from, right? 😕🙄

I used to think banning kids from planes would be overkill. My last vacation changed that. #ChildfreeFlights
