Singapore's Scoot Airlines Adds Kids-Free Zone

b_250_0_16777215_00_images_obgrabber_2013-08_71af4eb912.jpgiStockphoto/Thinkstock (NEW YORK) -- Yet another airline has created a child-free zone within its seating plan: Singaporean budget carrier Scoot has become the latest to ban babies and youngsters from a section of the aircraft. For a $14 upgrade, Scoot passengers can sit within the "ScootinSilence" area, a 41-seat cabin prohibiting anyone under the age of 12. 

The child-free zone advertises itself under the auspice of ensured peace and quiet.  It also offers additional legroom via Super or S-T-R-E-T-C-H seats, "offering 35" pitch -- "4 more inches than the standard economy seat," according to the carrier's website.

Scoot is not the first to kick kids out of certain areas.  Malaysian Airlines has long denied children access to first class and introduced an adults-only section in economy in 2012.  Meanwhile, AirAsia introduced a "Quiet Zone" to its aircrafts last year.

The anti-kid trend is reflected in other areas of the hospitality industry, with an increasing number of restaurants banning children.  In June, a Virginia sushi restaurant gained media attention for refusing to serve anyone under the age of 18.
