Aviation Singapore Airlines subsidiary Scoot adds no-kids section By Gay Nagle Myers / August 28, 2013 Share 1 -- Scoot, the low-cost subsidiary of Singapore Airlines, is the latest carrier to add a "no-kids" section on its flights. The carrier now offers a "ScootinSilence" seating area of 45 seats in rows 21 through 25 in the front of its economy-class section, just behind the ScootBiz section. Seats in that section cost an additional $15, have four inches more legroom than standard economy and come with the promise that kids under 12 will be seated "someplace else," according to Scoot's website. Scoot, which was launched by Singapore Airlines in the summer of 2012 and flies to 11 destinations in Asia and Australia, is not the first carrier to introduce a kid-free seating area. Malaysia Airlines banned infants in first class on its jet jumbo jets in June 2011, followed by its no-child zone on its Airbus A380s in April 2012. AirAsia X rolled out its Quiet Zone in the first seven rows in coach class last September. Follow Gay Nagle Myers on Twitter @gnmtravelweekly.
