Abu Dhabi International Airport has installed the world’s first ‘GoSleep’ sleeping pods which allow passengers to grab a few hours sleep between flights for 45 dirhams ($12.25) per hour.

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 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.
