Flying with a baby or a young child can be stressful for both parents and little ones but does this mean we shouldn’t travel with our kids?
A 2017 survey from the air travel site Airfwarewatchdog found that a little over half of respondents believe families with children aged 10 and under should have to sit in a designated section apart from other passengers, and the idea of separating children and adults has gained traction on Reddit, where threads with titles like “Would you pay extra for a child-free flight? YESSSS!!!” and “It’s time airlines introduced child-free zones” indicate the demand for child-free seating.
Some international airlines, including Malaysia Airlines, AirAsia, Scoot Airlines, and IndiGo have introduced “kid-free” zones where customers can purchase seats without the risk of sitting next to a noisy child.
The results have us shook. By these stats, are we really expected to not fly with our young ones?
A spokesperson at InsureandGo, Jonathan Etkind says young children can still travel, they just need to be comfortable and kept entertained during a flight. Here are some tips to have a happy and stress-fly flight with kids and babies:
