Air Travel Safety Facts

Knowing some important air travel safety facts helps us appreciate the practical protection of the Safe Travels Kit. All travelers are concerned about staying healthy while flying. Our patent-pending, antimicrobial, hypoallergenic seat covers and pillowcases are washable and reusable. The super-soft seat cover adjusts to fit coach or business-class seats, and it also fits on trains and in cars. Our seat covers and pillowcases have also demonstrated resistance to bedbugs. (Those little pests can travel onto planes with passengers who unwittingly picked them up in a hotel or rental!)

Don’t take chances with your health or your peace of mind: the next time you board a plane, have your Safe Travels Kit at the ready, attached to the handle of your rollaboard. If you’re concerned about staying healthy while flying, the Safe Travels kit provides the comfort and serenity of knowing you’re resting on fabric that blocks germs. Ease your mind through multiple flights with the Safe Travels Kit. When you know the air travel health safety facts we share below, you’ll realize that the Safe Travels kit can help you have a better flight, free from worry about the seats, pillows, and tray tables you use along the way.

We’re all concerned about the environmental impact of air travel. Safe Travels has partnered with Team Trees to ensure that for every kit purchased, a tree will be planted.
