Detachable parts include:
- One shoulder strap
- One connected wide support panel

- One dragonwood perch (all included)
Celltei® Pak-o-Bird In-Cabin Airline Carrier is a horizontal design like a dog carrier. A foldable pouch is optional for extra room a bird with a long tail would prefer. It looks like a regular hand-held luggage to allow safe travel without drawing attention. It also offers the essentials for a comfortable journey for you and your bird!
It is light in weight. The top opening allows your bird to keep eye contact with you while the carrier is placed underneath the seat in front of yours. A flexible plastic support system allows the carrier to be compressed downward to fit the available space without collapsing. A front window flap and two side curtains can be lowered to cover the openings.
Inside the carrier are a few D-rings for strapping a bird toy or two. Insert the water bottle dispensing valve from the outside through a side grommet, your bird can have water anytime without creating a mess.
Please get the carrier ahead of your scheduled flight to acclimate the bird. You can put it on the floor of a moving vehicle to get your bird used to the vibration and noises.
Date Completed: Spring 2004The tail pouch when unfolded, offers the extra room for a bird with long tail to have the tail needs. To be foldable, this mesh used in this area is the flexible nylon mesh that can be chewed up. As such, it is not suitable for very active birds.

Best Soft Carrier for Birds
Posted by Amanda on 8th Jan 2018
After having several soft sided carriers chewed up mid flight in the cabin by my cockatoo, I finally caved and got one of these lovely carriers. The craftsmanship is of excellent quality, and I look forward to putting it to use the next time I go away! I worry a bit about the zippers on either end of the carrier and I know some chewing will happen, but I'm confident that she won't be able to get out of this one at least! My poor girl isn't quite as enthusiastic about the airline carrier as she is her backpack, but I'm sure she'll come around. Thanks as always for your awesome products and innovations!
Peace of mind

I bought the traveling carrier for my two conures and their first flight. It was very nice. I was surprised at the high quality construction and materials. my birds were ok and had everything they needed inside. There are just so many details. Definitely a must have for any traveling parront.
Great airline carrier and comfortable, except...

I traveled cross country with Capone, my 18 year old Green Cheek Conure and he was extremely comfortable. The carrier looks awesome, great shape, and he's safe as well as has great visibility. It would have been ideal to include a few hooks on top to hang toys/or a tent. One issue I saw immediately after 10 minutes of use...the soft sided mesh window is concave and rippling after literally one use. Is this normal?

Our sun conure looked in the airline carrier for the first time and decided it looked cozy and inviting -- she stepped into it on her own within minutes! I had hung a favorite toy from one of the designated spots. She feels safe and very happy in there. Great design and high quality.

So I was pretty skeptical about a soft-sided carrier for a cockatoo, but a friend of mine at a well-respected parrot supply shop (Denise's Parrot Place, Mercer Island Washington) recommended this line.
This is exactly what we were hoping for, from the stainless steel mesh 'window' to the roll-up privacy cover.
One nice touch that I really appreciate are the thoughtfully-placed grommets along the lower sides, allowing me to select the best spot for Abbie's perch, snack dish and chewy-toy.
Very happy we purchased this in-flight carrier~
Great Airline Carrier

I have just returned from a cross country trip with my IRN parrot, Moonkin. This carrier worked out great even in a smaller plane. I would definitely recommend it.
We had a great trip

I hope that you are doing well! Joupityr and I had a great trip out to Nebraska, but on the way back, it took us 18 hours of travel. But, Joupityr was safe, fed, had her water, and slept in her Pak o Bird. The airline carrier is amazing, and I can not thank you enough for your help in getting it to me.
