Malaysia Airlines offers child-free zone on new Airbus

A humorous commercial showing kids flying cargo may have been an April Fool’s Day joke by Canadian airline WestJet, but many travelers do harbor hopes for child-free flights.

Now Malaysia Airlines is taking steps to create a no-child zone on its flights.

 When the airline’s first Airbus A380-800 takes to the skies on July 1, flying the Kuala Lumpur–London route, families with children won’t be welcome in the airplane’s upper deck, which will have 70 economy and 66 business class seats.

Instead, those passengers will be asked to book in the 350-seat economy class zone on the main deck, which the airline has designated as its child-friendly zone.

In a statement, the airline cites the availability of extra family-friendly facilities, including eight toilets for the lower-deck economy section and a dual aerobridge that offers “speedier/faster embarkation and disembarkation for this group of passengers.”
