The “GoSleep” is the latest, state of the art chair that converts into a private flat bed. Ten sleeping pods have now been installed in Terminal 3 and in the Al Dhabi Lounge in Terminal 1 at Abu Dhabi International Airport, with a further 35 on order for installation later this year.
The stylish, Finnish designed sleeping pods are easy-to-operate, where the user lies down, and shuts him/herself from any form of external disturbance like noise, or gathering crowds. On top of being able to catch up on some sleep between journeys, one could even be accessing the internet, charging personal devices, and even store their personal luggage in these pods.
Commenting on this initiative, Mohammed Al Bulooki, Chief Commercial Officer of ADAC, 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. Abu Dhabi Airports Company is proud that it is the first airport in the world to have secured an agreement to install the very latest passenger experience that embraces the latest technology.”
“The instalment of these innovative new convertible chairs highlights ADAC’s commitment to using the latest technologies to improve airport facilities, ensuring that passengers have the best experience whilst visiting Abu Dhabi International Airport.”
The pods are currently available at a cost of AED 45/hour ($12) per hour.
