Strong demand for child free flights – survey finds
More than a third (35%) of air travellers on leisure trips claim they would pay extra to travel on a child free flight, according to research by LateDeals.co.uk. And 70% think airlines should provide child free zones on their aircraft. It goes without saying that both percentages would be far lower if all travellers with families were included but the findings are likely to reflect the views of many Silver Travel Advisor readers. Customers of LateDeals.com who said they would pay a premium to avoid crying babies and seat back kicking claimed they would be prepared to fork out an extra £28 or £63 respectively on short and long haul return flights.
