World first: ‘GoSleep’ sleeping pods at Abu Dhabi International Airport

A new initiative at Abu Dhabi International Airport will allow passengers to rest in a private and secure environment. Abu Dhabi Airports Company (ADAC) announced an exclusive “world first” with the introduction of the ‘GoSleep’ sleeping pods.

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.

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 AED 45/hour using a credit card.
