The Finnish-designed "GoSleep" chairs, unveiled on Sunday, feature a sliding door/roof designed to either partially or fully enclose passengers within the pod, shielding them from surrounding noise, light and crowds.
Ten pods now reside in Terminal 3, and ten more in the Al Dhabi Lounge at Terminal 1, while a further 35 are to be fitted later this year. Once all are installed, the pods will be upgraded to provide internet access, storage space for luggage and other valuables,.as well as a power source for laptops, mobiles and other electronic devices.
The pods are currently available at a cost of £8 (45 AED) per hour, payable using a credit card.
They may look unusual, but are a step up from the Ostrich Pillow, which was launched last year. The portable device is placed over your head to “enable power naps anytime, anywhere”.
