Most Brits want child-free areas on aeroplanes

An overwhelming majority of British airline passengers think that there should be child-free zones on aeroplanes.

An overwhelming majority of British airline passengers think that there should be child-free zones on aeroplanes, the results of a new survey have revealed.

Some 79 percent of respondents to the TripAdvisor poll said they wanted to see child-free areas on aircraft, while 88 percent of travellers without children said they would like to see the introduction of adults-only sections.

Commenting on the findings, a TripAdvisor statement said: "The most demanding aspect of family getaways lies in travelling to the destination."

Nearly one-in-five (19 percent) of parents said that travelling with their children was the "biggest headache" of a family holiday, while 16 percent said that the greatest challenge was finding activities that everyone enjoys.

It was also revealed that almost half (49 percent) of parents admitted to allowing their child to be absent from school for at least one day a year in order to accommodate travel plans.

Separate research by TripAdvisor recently showed that a quarter of British travellers feel more nervous about travelling on Friday 13th than any other day of the year.
