Eight sleeping pods have been installed Perth Airport to help out travelers from long delays, or worse, overnight stretches of wandering a closed airport. Now, Finnish company GoSleep, as one of the new initiatives identified by Perth Airport to deliver new customer experience products. GoSleep Pod is a Finnish innovation and is a specially designed sleek chair similar to a business-class flatbed. Hand luggage can be stored safely under the seat during use, and a moveable breathing shade offers a private, quiet place to rest. The chairs have USB and GPO plugs for laptops or phone charging in the pod.
Travelers will be able to book the sleeping pods from $12 an hour or take advantage of special rates for longer stays. They can be booked in advance. For Passenger comfort: pillows, blankets, and suitcase storage solutions will also be available with pod stays.
GoSleep CEO Jussi Piispanen said: “Our Sleeping pods are in 15 international airports worldwide and now finally also down under. The GoSleep Sleeping pods will be a great benefit for any tired passenger. We are very excited to be in Australia and we hope to be part of many trips that start and end at Perth Airport."
