Who can use a Plane Pal?

Plane pal was designed with children between 2-8 years old in mind, as they can utilise the product to its full potential and extend their legs or lay flat. Adults tend to only be able to sit cross legged or with their legs set to one side. For many adults just being able to raise their legs helps them to travel more comfortably.

Can an infant (child under 2 years) use a Plane Pal

If you choose to purchase a seat for your infant or are lucky enough to have a spare seat allocated to you on your flight then Plane Pal can most certainly be used. Plane Pal is highly effective for infants and toddlers if used correctly. It is important to closely monitor your toddler to ensure they do not roll off the seat or Plane Pal. It is vital that their seat belt remains fastened at all times to avoid injury.

I have 2 or more kids, how many Plan Pals should I buy?

A Plane Pal FULL KIT comes with a carry bag and pump for in air inflation. For relaxed traveling, we recommend 1 Plane Pal per child.

How do I inflate my Plane Pal?

Plane Pal comes with a pump for inflation. It can also be inflated manually by simply blowing it up. Click HERE to get to the instruction page for full details. PLEASE NOTE: You may need to top up your Plane Pal during the flight. This is due to changing air pressure at different altitudes impacting the air inside your Plane Pal. Plane Pal is made to withstand expanding air pressure, however, contraction can occur and require a small amount of additional inflation.

How long does it take to inflate & deflate?

Inflation takes around 1 - 2 minutes and deflation about approximately 3 seconds.

Can I inflate my Plane Pal without the pump?

Yes, you can manually inflate your Plane Pal by simply blowing it up. This may help those families trying to minimise bulk when packing. It depends on how much ‘puff’ you’ve got.
