What is BedBox®?
BedBox® is primarily a premium ride-on suitcase. It is the ultimate travel gadget for children up to approximately 6-7 years. It is your child’s hand luggage & ride-on suitcase, with an integrated bed/leg-rest feature. All in the very same box.
BedBox® is developed by a former aircraft engineer, pilot, parents and frequent travelers, in cooperation with one of the best design agencies in Norway. It has a clean aviation-inspired and Scandinavian design, and it’s swivel wheels makes it easy to maneuver. In addition, it has a unique and patented bed/leg-rest feature, which makes it one of a kind.
The bed/leg-rest feature of the BedBox® looks so comfortable! Does it compromise safety?
No, we believe using the bed/leg-rest feature of the BedBox® properly does quite the opposite. On a long flight, either we like it or not, children will naturally become tired and will eventually need to rest or sleep. Traditionally, this has been solved by letting children sleep curled up in their seat or across a seat row like this (or even on the floor!). Although sleeping across a seat row is widely accepted and usually not a problem, it is not optimum in case of unexpected turbulence. Using the bed/leg rest feature of the BedBox® will better allow using the aircraft seat belt, while still having a super comfortable place to sleep or rest.
In addition, the BedBox has already passed safety assessments by many major airlines.
Is there any limitations for using the bed/leg-rest feature during air travel?
Yes, it is intended to be used during the cruise portion of the flight only, and must be stowed away during taxi, take-off, landing or turbulence.
Can the BedBox® be used on any aircraft seat?
BedBox® should be used on window seats on single aisle aircrafts. If flying on wide-body aircrafts with twin aisle, it should preferably be used on either window seats, or on the middle seats, if sitting in the middle row, between the aisles.
Is the BedBox® FAA/EASA etc approved?
Personal comfort devices and carry-on suitcases such as the BedBox is normally not subject to a specific approval from the aviation authorities. They are brought on board for personal comfort and convenience and can be used at the discretion of the crew, and within their limitations.
For the BedBox, as with most other personal items brought on board, the user is responsible for ensuring proper use according to the user instructions.
Can the BedBox® be used on other than air travels?
Yes, the BedBox is the perfect travel companion, and can in many cases be used as a comfortable leg rest on trains and ferries.
Is it difficult to use?
No. It is quite easy to use, by following these instructions.
Can the BedBox® be used during turbulence?
No, just like most baby bassinets that you will find on some limited number of aircrafts, it shall not be used during turbulence. However, to better secure towards unexpected turbulence, we recommend always using the seat belt in combination with the use of BedBox®, and use the strap to secure the BedBox® in place. (See photo)
What is the maximum length for using the bed/leg-rest feature in a typical aircraft seat?
Some airlines have better seat pitch than others. Seat pitch is usually between 82-90 cm. The BedBox can be used as a comfortable leg rest for children up to 120-130cm. Children up to 100-110 cm might also be able to curl up a little and lay down comfortably on the side.
Is there enough space for other items in the suitcase?
Yes, the mattress does not take up much volume, so there is plenty of space for other favorite items as well. The total capacity of the BedBox® is 20 liters.
In which direction should the child be positioned when using the bed/leg-rest feature?
We recommend a position with the feet towards the seat in front (like this). This will better allow using the seatbelt in combination with bed/leg-rest feature of the BedBox®. Even though this is not a strict requirement, it is always recommended and a good practice to use the seatbelt whenever seated.
What happens if the seat in front is reclined? Will it affect normal usage of the bed/leg-rest feature?
This has been tested on many different economy seats with a normal recline angle. Since the platform height of the BedBox® is so low, and close to the rotation/hinge point of the backrest of the seat in front, this will usually not be a problem.
Are the wheels lockable?
No, the wheels are not lockable. To secure the BedBox® in place, we recommend using the shoulder/pulling strap, as you can see on this photo.
Can the BedBox® be used on bulkhead seats? (Without a seat in front)
The BedBox is primarily designed to be used between two seat rows, as this will give better support and stability. However, if the BedBox is properly secured to the aircraft seat with the help of the strap, it is possible to use it on bulkhead seats.
Does every airline approve it?
The BedBox has been assessed and approved by many major international airlines. Happy and well rested children is important for them as well💤 However, we can’t guarantee that all airlines will approve its use, and final decision will always rest with the crew. For more information, please read this article, or contact us for advice.
Do you have a list of airlines that approves the BedBox?
Yes we do! And it keeps getting longer. Please check out this list.

At JetKids, we love to travel. Having children hasn't stopped us from traveling but it has certainly made it more of a challenge.
The idea behind JetKids started in 2008 when Christina & Halvor were flying long haul with their young daughter. Getting her to sleep on the plane was easier said than done and they ended up sacrificing their space as she spread herself out across the seat row and themselves. Neither was it comfortable, and although not strictly required: Using the seat belt in this position was not possible either.
After the their first unfortunate flying experience with their young one, they started their research. It seemed to be a common problem for parents flying with children. Some parents solved this by letting their children sleep on the cold floor. Some parents let their children sleep partly on them and partly on their own seat - meaning they couldn’t move for the next 9 hours. Some parents put lots of stuff, like suitcases, pillows and blankets in front of the seat to extend the seat. This required too much work and too many items.
They both agreed that there needed to be an easier and better way to solve this. An idea was born and prototypes were developed.
One of the first ideas was to create an inflatable product that fills up the empty space in front of the seat. However this idea was quickly thrown away since inflatable devices inside a pressurized aircraft cabin could cause problems. Additionally, it wasn’t very practical.
So instead they developed some simple prototypes of a collapsible platform that did the same purpose. They lent the prototypes to flying parent and their kids, and receive positive and enthusiastic replies in return. Just what they needed!
Yet the problem was still not completely solved. You already have your hands full carrying so many kids “flying gadgets” and other stuff when flying with children. So giving parents one more thing to carry was not exactly ideal.
Instead, with the help of great designers from Frost Product, and helpful people from Innovation Norway, they decided to make an aviation inspired, premium quality, ride-on suitcase, that is within carry-on dimensions. The whole thing was topped up with integrating a patented bed/leg-rest feature. It was named the BedBox and it became the perfect travel companion for children up to around 7 years.
Christina & Halvor, the founders of JetKids, is well experienced and educated within the aviation and travel industry.
Christina has education within the travel sector, and has worked many years in jobs related to the industry. Since 2011, she has been the Managing Director of a Norwegian online retail store, specialized in travel with small children. This experience has given her a unique insight and competence. Halvor has a long and broad experience and education within the aviation industry, and has for over 16 years worked for some of the major European airlines. He as a pilot education, and aircraft engineer education, and has served as an airline Captain, instructor and mechanic, mostly on the Boeing B737. But most importantly, Christina & Halvor are also the parents of 3 children, and have first hand experience with the challenges faced when traveling with children.
Since the launch of BedBox, a lot has happened. We are now a team of dedicated people working here at JetKids in Norway. Our goal is to continue developing smart and high quality products for traveling families.
