Sleepypod Air provides the largest amount of space for in-cabin air travel. The innovative design enables it to contract in size to fit the space below a range of airline seats during the restricted takeoff and landing times. Once the plane is in the air, it can be expanded to give your pet extra space to stretch out. For added versatility, Sleepypod Air can be used as a crash-tested car seat. Ultra Plush bedding ensures a cozy pet bed away from home.

Rigorously tested to include the same dynamic crash-testing as child safety restraints (U.S., Canadian, and E.U.). Independently tested and certified with a top safety rating by the Center for Pet Safety for pets 18 pounds and under. Sizing and preferences vary by pet, just like humans. Check Sleepypod’s sizing guide for more information.

Use Sleepypod Air as a cozy napping space before transitioning to a carrier, car seat, or pet bed away from home. Your pet will travel with less fear and anxiety because it will travel in a familiar space.

Is it suitable for airline travel?
Yes, Sleepypod Air is suitable for in-cabin use on most airlines. Since each airline and airplane is a little different, Sleepypod always recommends contacting the airline prior to travel, just to make sure all pet restrictions and requirements are met.

How do I reduce the size?
Sides fold up on either end while the top presses down. Please note that Sleepypod Air does not hold the reduced shape in a freestanding position. It is designed to release from the reduced size unless restricted by the space available so your pet can enjoy as much space as possible.

Can Sleepypod Air be used in the front seat?
Sleepypod recommends buckling your pet into the rear seat, just like you would a child under 95 pounds, to better ensure safety.

Can more than one pet use the carrier at a time?
Pets can share the carrier at home
