Singapore - Following Malaysia Airlines' famous move to ban all babies from first class in 2011, another airline has created child-free zones on their planes.

Huffington Post reports that Scoot, a budget Singapore-based airline, will enact "ScootinSilence," where passengers can be upgraded to a 41-seat cabin of the plane (rows 21 to 25) where children under the age of 12 are banned for roughly $14USD.

What's more, the child-free cabin will have more legroom than the rest of the airplane. Check out the plane's floorplan here
