Passengers can expect to see a limited number of air travel trailers in Alaska starting on February 3, according to a state Department of Transportation (DOT) press release.
The first trailers will arrive at Alaska airports on Feb 3 and the last will be rolled out at Alaska Airlines’ gatehouses on Feb 4, according the DOT.
The announcement comes just two weeks after the DOT announced the first batch of trailers, which are designed to help travelers who live in Alaska’s far northern areas with the most stringent restrictions on travel.
The Alaska Airlines trailers are equipped with two rows of seat cushions and two backpacks that can be used in either the back or front seats.
The bags have a capacity of 18-inches in front and 20-inches on the rear.
They can be reclined to a comfortable 45 degrees and are designed for adults weighing between 55 and 75 pounds, and are the largest travel trailers on the market.
The trailers are designed with the help of technology and other special considerations.
The trailers will be installed at airports and are not available for passengers to use on-board the Alaska Airlines flights, which include all scheduled departures and arrivals.
Travelers will be allowed to use the trailers for up to six consecutive days in a row, according a DOT press release, and the first trailer is expected to be ready by February 3.
