Next Media Online -  Abu Dhabi International Airport has announced it will be the first airport in the world to offer weary travellers some relief with its bespoke GoSleep sleeping pods.

The Finnish designed sleeping pods will launch in two stages in the world’s “transfer terminal”.

The first ten pods offer users a flat bed experience with an optional shade that can be partly or fully closed to block out sound, noise and the crowds of the busy airport.

Later stage pods, anticipated to be introduced to the airport later this year, will offer wifi access, power sockets for charging electronic devices and secure luggage storage.

The GoSleep sleeping pods can be rented for about US$12 an hour.
