First Class Legroom

Sleepypod Air provides the largest amount of space for in-cabin air travel. An innovative design enables it to contract in size to fit in the space below a range of airline seats during the restricted times of takeoff and landing. Once the plane is in the air, it can be expanded to give a pet extra space to stretch out. pet the largest possible space below an airline seat.

For added versatility, Sleepypod Air can be used as a car seat. In the event of a collision or hard stop, Sleepypod Air's PPRS technology prevents a pet from being ejected while helping to reduce the damaging forces on the pet. Rigorous testing includes the same dynamic crash testing that ensures the performance of child safety restraints. It was tested at U.S., Canadian, and E.U. child safety standards.
