 Abu Dhabi Airport To Launch Sleeping Pods

In a first-of-its-kind move, sleeping pods were introduced by the Abu Dhabi Airports Company at the international airport in the emirate.

The "GoSleep" sleeping pod is the latest, state-of-the-art chair that converts into a flat bed. Ten sleeping pods have been installed in Terminal 3 and in the Al Dhabi Lounge in Terminal 1 at the airport, with a further 35 to be installed later this year.

The sleeping pods are easy to operate and feature a partial or fully enclosed sliding shade that isolates the customer from noise, light and crowds.

After an initial launch phase, the chairs will be upgraded to include internet access, will include secure storage for luggage and other valuables, and will allow customers to charge their laptops, mobile telephones, and other electronic devices.

Passengers will be able to use the chairs at a rate of 45 dirhams per hour.
