Dubai International Airport has unveiled 27 sleep pods and cabins as part of its new Sleep ‘n Fly Lounge in Terminal 3.

For those weary fliers in need of a quick reboot, the new Sleep ‘n Fly lounge features 20 Igloo sleep pods and seven Yawn cabins with double beds — which smartly can also be used as private offices.

Located close to Gate A1 in Concourse A, pods can be booked for a short one-hour nap up to an entire night via the Sleep ‘n Fly website or once you arrive at the airport.


The Igloo Pods

After you’ve checked in at the reception, a staff member will escort you to your pod. At an agreed time, they will return to wake you with a hot or cold towel.

“After operating dedicated airport sleep lounges for several years now we have taken our unique concept to a new level at Dubai International,”

Geoffrey Carrier, general manager, Onground Hospitality (pod provider)

“We are excited to be part of the amazing Dubai Airport experience, and look forward to offering some much-needed rest to the ever-growing number of passengers passing through the airport.”

The Yawn Cabins

Other handy facilities such as shaving kits and a shoe-shine service are available, along with showers, restrooms and restaurants. All of the Yawn cabins are air conditioned and soundproof.

There are several options to choose from, with the cheapest $17 for one hour during the day in an Igloo pod. The most expensive is $271 for 12 hours in a Yawn cabin.

Although Concourse A is dedicated to Emirates and Qantas flights, all airline passengers have access to the Sleep ‘n Fly lounge if they’re transiting through Dubai International Airport.
