Following the growing trend for relaxation facilities for passengers who want to rest before, after or between flights, Istanbul Airport (iGA) has launched its 'Sleepod' service, a unit of 25 sleeping cabins that can be rented on an hourly basis.
Disposable sheets are used for the cabins and are included in the price, along with one pillow. Passengers can buy extra pillows, disposable pillowcases and blankets for an additional charge.
Other amenities include carpeting in the cabins, round-the-clock cleaning staff and blankets sent for dry cleaning after each use.
Each of the cabins has a USB port and a socket, allowing users to charge mobile phones and other electronic devices. Each cabin also has a special screened area where passengers can store their hand luggage and personal items.
Passengers can complete the rental process at the sales counter in front of the Sleepod area. Each cabin costs €6 an hour between 07:00 and 19:00 or €9 an hour between 19:00 and 07:00. The additional services such as blankets, pillows or pillowcases are available for €2.
Another option at iGA for transit passengers is a Yotelair inside the duty-free area, after security and passport control.
