An airline in Asia has come up with a new way to make more money. It's charging adult passengers extra to sit in a child free zone on the plane, supposedly away from crying babies.

Air Asia sees this as a great way to de-stress from checking that extra luggage or from running to catch your flight. The cost to sit in the new so called quiet zone is anywhere from $11 to $35.

It plans to reserve the first seven rows of its planes for passengers 12 and older.

This follows similar efforts from Malaysia Air.
