Sleep n Fly

Dubai International Airport has taken the convenience of the passengers to a greater height. One of the world’s busiest international airports is now home to a stylish, sleek and comfortable sleep pod lounge, located at Concourse B of terminal 3. Dubai is a major tourist hub and its airport thrives with travelers from across the globe. Amidst the hustle, passengers who want to relax or recharge for their next flight can book an entry into the Sleep ‘n Fly Lounge.

Flexisuites, Pods, Cabins, and more..
Built by the pioneers of the sleep lounge,

’sleep ’n fly’, the new lounge at Dubai Airport

is spread over an expansive 575 square meter area as a two-story facility. It has a holding capacity of 46 people and includes a range of options, such as 12 Flexisuites, 5 Cabins, and a dedicated sleep area. Travelers can book one of the several options, irrespective of their class tickets.

Eugene Barry, EVP Commercial at Dubai Airports, said: “It is great to further develop our partnership with Airport Dimensions with this latest sleep ’n fly concept. The addition of a combined sleep, lounge, and workspace allows our guests to use their time effectively at the airport and expands the range of services available for international travelers using DXB.”

While Flexisuites are sleep pods that can accommodate one person each, Bunk Cabins are rooms with a capacity of two people. For a family of three (two adults and a child), you can choose Double Cabins. Tourists can book from a one-hour power nap to full-night sleep in this comfortable lodge.

Imitating the First-Class Airline Seats that fully recline into beds, the Flexisuites allow a 6-hour stay in soundproof and lockable pods. Lit up with ambient lights, the pods are equipped with beds that have overhead storage to help you nod off with your essentials by the side. There are power sockets for your gadgets and foldable desks to organize the items. For a small charge, you can request pillows, blankets, and other facilities.

The Double/ Family Cabins feature beds (double bed, bunk beds, a stretchable children’s bed, and an infant cot) and bedding, ear plugs, and a close wake-up service so that you don’t miss your upcoming flight.

For workaholics, there are Business Pods, which feature free lockers, folding desks, convertible spaces, and multiple charging options.

Errol McGlothan, MD EMEA and APAC of Airport Dimensions, said: “Multi-tiered offerings will appeal to a wider range of travelers looking for an oasis of serenity designed especially for them.”

Classic Lounge Lite

Under this latest opening, a new section has also been launched, called the ‘Lounge Lite’. Anyone who hasn’t enough time to hit the hay can just pick their favorite beverage, soak up the airport vistas and stretch their legs before boarding the next flight. Guests can sign up for unlimited beverages.


Open to all travelers at the airport, the state-of-the-art amenities and well-furnished services have been carefully curated to provide comfort. Access to the lounge is also available to members of Priority Pass, along with LoungeKey, which is part of Airport Dimensions’ parent company Collinson. Visitors can even freshen up and rejuvenate in sophisticated washrooms that have showers and a range of Ceylonese Ayurveda wellness products from Spa Ceylon.

Sleep ‘n fly has introduced, beverages and self-serving coffee stations to its guests. There are also other measures such as the bespoke power system, bamboo-made toiletry kits, upcycled leather furniture, plastic cups replaced by glassware, and 100% biodegradable key cards; all these which make it a smart and sustainable lounge.

So, the next time your layover falls in Dubai or you have extra time waiting for your flight, catch some extra Zs in this chic lounge.
