Fancy a nap in the new ‘sleep pods’? Now at Dubai Airport

Who wouldn’t fancy a quick nap in between transit connections? Now Dubai International Airport is offering cozy ‘SnoozeCubes’ for their passengers, becoming the first airport in the Middle East to offer these modular sleeping pods for travelers. Ten ‘SnoozeCubes’ have been installed across from Gate 122 at Dubai International Airport’s Terminal 1. Each of these ‘SnoozeCube’ accommodation units contain a full-size bed, a touch-screen television, high-speed internet access, and are connected to the airport’s flight-information system. Most importantly, the units are connected to the flight information system to ensure that amidst the rest and relaxation, passengers do not miss their flights at the world’s fourth busiest airport for international passenger traffic.

The creator of SnoozeCube, Larry Swann said that Dubai’s desire to be the first airport to install the system was a reflection of the emirate’s vision to continually enhance the travelers’ experience, particularly at its points of entry and departure. The launch of the SnoozeCube is a further endorsement of the country’s reputation for creating high quality, innovative products. Dubai-based Steve Jones, New Zealand Trade Commissioner for Middle East, Africa and Pakistan said, ‘We are confident SnoozeCube will become a familiar name for the millions of passengers traveling to Dubai and in other airports around the world in the months and years to come.”

During the pilot phase, the SnoozeCube can be booked on an hourly basis with rates starting from Dh65 ($18) per hour for the first four hours. So worth every penny, when you arrive at your destination more recharged and refreshed!
