Airport sleeping pods with Netflix to be trialled this year

AirPod, the cutting-edge airport sleeping capsule, will be trialled across EU airports in autumn 2018.


Want a quick pre-flight nap at your boarding gate? You soon can.


Later this year, European airports will introduce Airpods, theΒ cutting-edge airport sleeping capsule.


The pods feature a seat that converts into a bed, as well as high-speed wifi, air conditioning, air purifiers and power sockets.


There’s even Netflix available on the television screen inside.



Airpod was developed by two Slovenian businessmen who say: β€œOur aim is to improve and make travel experience comfortable and enjoyable each and every hour, whilst transiting.”


Travellers will be able to rent the pods in one-hour slots.


There’s been no word on the price or exactly which airports will first trial the pods.
