Animals taking to the sky are getting a more comfortable journey thanks to a new innovation from Delta Air Lines.

The new CarePod, a state-of-the-art pet travel carrier developed through five years of research and a two-month trial period, will roll out at eight U.S. airports to start. Following the initial rollout, the carrier will be introduced across Delta’s entire fleet.

The CarePod allows for real-time updates throughout the journey and gives pets a new level of safety and comfort during flight.

Some of the new features include heavily insulated walls to protect pets from fluctuating temperatures, multilayered windows and doors which prevent stress, a built-in hydration system, GPS tracking, connectivity so travelers can keep an eye on Fido, and human-level and nontoxic construction.

The CarePods can accommodate animals that need to be transported in 300-series crates or smaller, and are bookable 3–13 days in advance.

“With the Delta partnership, we aim to raise the benchmark for pet air travel to allow families and pets to stay connected and travel safely together,” said Jenny Pan, founder and CEO, CarePod.
