airKid / airplane-children`s seat


Children until the age of two are allowed to travel unbelted on the lab of their parents, because no special seats are provided.
To bring car-safety-seats by yourself is often not allowed.
That means a high risk of danger.

airKid is completely collapsible into a flat 2D shape, to save space and to be stowed into the boxes on top of the seats.

The variability of the belt by 180° allows a zone to lie on for babies and a seat for children till the age of two.

Because of the stepless adaptation on the body height, the child-seat can be set optimally how it is needed.
(with the aid of Velcro® Industrieklett: An area of 2,5x2,5 cm holds 20kg).
