Finding the Right Special Needs Travel Essentials

When one of your family members has special needs, transportation can be trickier than usual. But at, our goal is to help you simplify long-distance travel so that you get to your destination free of any travel-related snafus. One of the ways we do that is by providing special needs airplane seats, harnesses and restraints that are safe, comfortable and easy to take with you. From our very own Special Tomato line and other top brands, these approved travel essentials will make your life easier.

Does My Child Need a Special Needs Seat?

Do children with special needs need car seats on airplanes? The question is a tricky one, but the important thing to know is that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) does not allow children to ride in special needs positioning wheelchairs during air travel. Obviously, this can make traveling difficult for many families. As a result, we have designed and selected some FAA-approved booster seats that make transportation simpler. With these products, your child can safely ride in an airplane.

Besides typical airplane seats, we also have some airplane restraints that provide a safe, comfortable and simple way to safely secure your child while flying. Pick an airplane harness from our selection if you prefer the restraining aspect with less bulk than a typical seat. One thing to note is that, if you want to go this route, you may need to request an exemption letter from the FAA. These things can be confusing, so feel free to rely on our expert team for personalized advice. We’re always happy to help you find the right special needs equipment for traveling and more!
