Corendon Airlines is planning to introduce an Only Adult cabin on flights between Amsterdam and Curaçao.
Starting in November, the flights will have an adult only cabin at the front of the aircraft.
But it’s nothing to do with some of what happens in parts of Amsterdam.
It’s a cabin where only adults are allowed and no children. Only passengers over 16 are able to sit in the cabin. The idea is that passengers will pay for a quieter and more relaxed trip.
Corendon is introducing the new zone only on flights between Amsterdam and Curaçao.
Flights to Curaçao with an Airbus A350-900
The first flight is on 03 November when Corendon starts flying the route five times a week with an Airbus A350-900 wet-leased from Spanish airline World2Fly.
That aircraft will have 432 economy seats in a 3-3-3 layout and the Only Adult zone will be 93 seats in the front cabin.
There will also be 9 XL seats with extra legroom in that cabin – they are the front row of the cabin.

What it costs
Corendon is charging an extra 45 euros one way for passengers to sit in the cabin separated from the screaming toddlers. It’s €100 one-way for the XL seats.
Two thirds of the 432 seat capacity is being sold as part of a package tour and one third as individual tickets.
Individual tickets are on sale from 299 euros for a one-way ticket and 598 euros for a return ticket.
Atilay Uslu, the visionary behind Corendon:
“On our flights, we always strive to address the diverse needs of our customers. We are proud to be the first Dutch airline to introduce the Only Adult zone, as it caters to travelers seeking some extra tranquility during their journey.
“We also believe that this offering will have a positive impact on parents traveling with young children, allowing them to enjoy their flight without apprehensions when their little ones make a bit more noise.”
