Book a quiet seat on AirAsia

Travellers who favour the sound of silence can book an AirAsia X Quiet Zone seat on long-haul flights from February. Rows seven to 14, directly behind premium class, is the dedicated zone. Seats here don’t cost extra, beyond the “pick-a-seat” fee of 35 ringgit ($11) for economy seats and 110 ringgit for “hot seats” the airline already charges passengers. Under-12s are not allowed in rows seven to 14.
