Out of the Ordinary - Abu Dhabi Airport Sleep Pods

No comments:
I have never been to Abu Dhabi Airport and never have I use its facilities because I have always been using Dubai Aiport for our trips but in Abu Dhabi airport a cocoon is making a buzz recently and its sounds very interesting. Abu Dhabi Airport has installed Sleep Pods for weary passengers transiting in AUH airport.

Sleep Pods feature a manual sliding door and the seat gets converted to a cozy bed, an alarm that will go off so you will not miss your flight, and charging ports for cellphone and laptops, how cool is that? There are 10 sleep pods currently available in Abu Dhabi airport and 50 more will be added in October this year with an upgrade version boasting WiFi and movie streaming.  The use of these sleep pods are free of charge for now but there is a plan to charge AED 45 per hour in the future.

Hope that Dubai airport will follow the lead and also airports in the world. I also hope that after the renovation of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Manila, they will thought of having these cool alien looking pods.
