The sound of a crying or screaming child on a long flight is a nightmare many have had to endure. But, one airline is trying to end that.

AirAsia X, which primarily serves China, Taiwan, Japan, South Korea and Australia, launched a program this week to keep kids away from your peaceful flight.

Children under age 12 are no longer allowed in the first seven rows on certain AirAsia X flights. The "Quiet Zones" on AirAsia X also have softer lighting, divider curtains and separate toilets.

The peace and quiet comes at a price—you will pay between about 11 and 36 dollars for the privilege.

A competing carrier, Malaysia Airlines, offers similar child-free zones in first class and the upper deck on Airbus A-380 flights.
