COMMERCIAL AIRLINES, CAR SEATS AND THE GOGO KIDZ
Airlines, car seats
and the gogo
Does the gogo Kidz® Travelmate fi t down the aisle of an
airplane? Can I leave it attached on an airplane? Any
suggestions about the car seat and the airplanes?
Going Through Security
Some x-ray machines at the airport may be smaller and your car seat with
the gogo Kidz Travelmate attached may not fi t through the machine. We
suggest asking the Security Personnel to "hand wand" your car seat with
the gogo Kidz attached just like a stroller. Model UNIQR has quick release
wheels so if needed you can remove the wheels to allow your car seat to fi t
through the smaller machines.
The gogo Kidz is 16 ½ inches wide and fi ts down the aisle of most
commercial airplanes. However, many car seats are wider and they may
not fi t down the aisle of the coach section. A practical approach is to have
your child out of the seat and expect to carry the seat to your assigned
seat, once you reach the coach section. The handle on the gogo kidz
makes this easier to do than carrying the car seat by itself.
There are dozens of car seat manufacturers with multiple models of car
seats. THE GOGO KIDZ® TRAVELMATE HAS NOT BEEN TESTED
IN COMBINATION WITH THE CAR SEATS IN ANY CRASH TESTING
PROGRAM. Remove the gogo Kidz and either stow it in the overhead bin
or “gate check it.” Fortunately, the gogo Kidz is very easy to put on and
take off. Only one thumbscrew needs to be removed for the strap version
and two thumbscrews for the Britax®, Fisher-Price® and Recaro® seats.
Note: We recommend you remove the strap and keep it with you if you
check the gogo Kidz® Travelmate at the gate.
There have been reports of the aircraft seat belt buckle being stuck behind
car seats, creating a removal problem at destination. You may wish to ask
the fl ight attendant for a seat belt extender to eliminate the potential for this
