Abu Dhabi was the first airport to introduce sleeping pods for travelers. For about $13 an hour, you get a small, private pod where you can nap, and you can plug in your electronics and store your luggage.
Munich Airport has something called Napcabs in Terminal 2, which cost at least 30 euros to use. Here in the U.S., we have Minute Suites in Philly, Atlanta and DFW where you can nap, shower and work. The cost? About $35 for an hour, and more for every 15 minutes. Now here’s the rub: That time adds up fast, and having to watch the clock can make it more stressful than relaxing. Instead, you’re better off using that same money for a day pass to a VIP lounge.
At least one airport is doing it right. Helsinki Vantaa Airport is testing out a “relaxation area” in Terminal 2 with sleeping pods and private seating. And best of all, its entirely free.
