One airline has received major backlash online after they announced they would be introducing child free flights.


The budget airline, IndiGo, is the latest in a string of airlines who have caused controversy thanks to their plans to introduce quite zones on flights.


The new zones are aimed at business travellers and prohibit children under the age of 12 from entering.



In a statement from the airline, the decision was defended on the grounds that regular business travellers use their time on flights to conduct work.


“Keeping in mind the comfort and convenience of all passengers, row numbers one to four and 11 to 14 are generally kept as a Quiet Zone on IndiGo flights.


“These zones have been created for business travellers who prefer to use the quiet time to do their work.”



The decision has caused major debate online with many suggesting this is their attempt to deter family travellers from flying with children.






While others see the merit in the plans and say they would be happy to pay more for such a flight.





IndiGo’s CEO, Campbell Wilson response to the comments was:


“No offence to our young guests or those travelling with them – you still have the rest of the aircraft.”
