Airline Approved IATA CR-82 Compliant

IATA stands for the “International Air Transportation Association” and is responsible for formulating air travel policies and standards.  CR-82 stands for “Crate Requirement #82” which outlines the current crate requirements for dogs being transported in the cargo area.  

Dakota 283 Jet Stream crates meet or exceed all IATA CR82 requirements. The strong construction can easily withstand airline transport while keeping your dog safe and secure. The airline kit includes: air travel rails, carry handles, plastic water and food bowls, ID Tags, "Live Animal" labels and deadbolt covers.

*Important Note: Airlines can impose more stringent requirements depending on your breed, location, distance traveled etc.  An Airline has the right to refuse travel to any pet so it’s important to check with your specific carrier and know the requirements before you travel.  We have found improper sizing to be one of the main points of focus for many airlines, so please refer to our "Sizing Tab" at the top to make sure your crate is the correct size.

Product Details

Each crate is constructed using the rotational molding process and from high-grade Polyethylene, which forms a single-shell product that will flex slightly, but also resistant to surface abrasions and extreme impacts. This is the very same process used to make US military-strength cargo containers and heavy-duty fuel cells; so you can rest assured it will hold up to anything you and your dog through at it.

The walls are tough and rugged, able to absorb impacts while the corners remain virtually impervious to crushing, cracking and other damage. 

The interior of the crate is deep and wide making it a good fit for nearly any size dog (or other similar-sized animals). The Jet Stream crate is built and sized to fit the rear interior of most trucks, SUVs and hatchbacks (that are 48 inches wide or more) sitting side-by-side. If your dog happens to have an "accident," the one-piece design prevents your car from getting messy but is easily rinsed when you are ready. The small, rear-facing holes allow for easy cleaning and drainage. Getting in and out of the crate is never a problem thanks to the double-hinged door, which can swing from right or left and can be completely removed with ease from the outside.

The Hero glides more easily across surfaces. This is ideal if you don't require the crate to be raised and prefer the sliding action. By running straps through the top handle hole, the crate can be locked in for a permanent stay in the back of virtually any vehicle.

Use instructions and diagrams below to properly measure your dog:

Correct crated sizing is very important, especially if you are planning to travel with your pet on an airline.  Airlines can refuse travel to any pet that they feel does not properly fit their crate. A standard rule of thumb is that when the dog is standing in a normal relaxed position the crate should measure 2 inches above the top of his head.  A visual indicator for the airline attendants who are in charge of getting your dog onto the plane is that they are able to see your dog comfortably stand up and turn around in the crate.

STEP 1:  Measure your dog based on the diagram below

A = length of the animal from tip of the nose to the base of the tail.
= height of the animal when standing, from top of head (or ears, whichever is higher) to the floor - ears must not touch the top of the kennel when standing.
C = width at the widest point.

STEP 2: Calculate the size of the crate needed for your dog

The length of the kennel must be equal to A + 4"
The height of the kennel must be equal to or greater than B + 3"
The width of the kennel must be equal to C x 2.
