Would You Pay More For A Seat In A Child-Free Zone? 60% Of Tripadvisor Poll Respondents Say ‘Yes’

In the wake of Scoot’s recent introduction of child-free quiet zones on their flights, TripAdvisor polled more than 1,800 Australian respondents for their opinion.

Almost two thirds (61%) of the respondents said they will be willing to pay more for a seat in a child-free section, approximately 21% of the respondents said they will not, and almost 8% of respondents indicated that they have no preference. Slightly more than 11% of the respondents find the airline’s policy offensive.

“The introduction of child-free zones on flights provides travellers with a choice. As suggested by the results of our TripAdvisor poll, the majority of Australian travellers are willing to pay a premium for the option to control their in-flight experience,” said Andrew Wong, TripAdvisor’s regional director for flights. “This might be the start of a trend among the low-cost carriers who make money by selling value-added services.”
