Abu Dhabi International Airport has introduced ten Finnish-designed sleeping pods for travelers. The ‘GoSleep’ pods provide individual sleeping quarters for weary airline passengers to use while they wait for their flight.
They have been installed in Terminal 3 and the Al Dhabi Lounge in Terminal 1, with 35 more pods to be installed later this year. The easy-to-operate pods feature a partial or fully enclosed sliding shade to isolate the user from noise, light and crowds.
After the initial launch phase, they will be upgraded to included Internet access, charging ports, and storage for luggage. Passengers will be able to use the chairs at a rate of AED 45/hour ($12.25) using a credit card. Chief Commercial Officer of ADAC, Mohammed Al Bulooki, said:
Abu Dhabi Airports Company continually strives to enhance the experience of passengers travelling to, from or via Abu Dhabi International Airport. The introduction of ‘GoSleep’ sleeping pods is another step towards exceeding customers’ expectations and delivering world-class levels of service.
