Angled blinds to create a calming environment, insulated temperature regulating walls and a built-in auto-replenishing hydration system – it sounds like four-legged family members are getting a better flight experience than their owners.

Exclusively offered when travelling with Delta Air Lines, the CarePod travel carrier is ushering in a new level of safe and comfortable travel for our furry friends. Plus helicopter pet-parents can relax knowing that their fur baby is being supervised at all times through a GPS tracking and monitoring system that connects directly to the Delta Cargo Control Centre.

After a successful two-month trial period, CarePod’s state of the art pet travel carrier will be available when flying with Delta from Atlanta, Boston, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New York, San Francisco and West Palm Beach – followed by a phased roll out across the airline’s entire U.S. network.

CarePod bookings can be made between three and 13 days prior to departure and can accommodate dogs and cats permitted in a 300 series crate or smaller. Sorry, no owners allowed, just real time updates throughout your pet’s journey and endless cuddles upon arrival.
