(CNN) - Tired of crying kids and wound-up toddlers disrupting your peace and quiet in the air?An overseas airline launched a program this week to keep kids away from you -- for a price.

Children under age 12 are no longer allowed in the first seven rows on certain AirAsia X flights.The airline primarily serves China, Taiwan, Japan, South Korea and Australia. Airline executives call the "Quiet Zones" a -quote- "heavenly package for those who want peace of mind."

You'll pay between about 11 and 36 bucks for the privilege."Quiet Zones" on AirAsia X also have softer lighting, divider curtains and separate toilets. A competing carrier, Malaysia Airlines, offers similar child-free zones in first class and the upper deck on Airbus A-380 flights.
