Airport Naps Made Easy with Mini-Suites
USA Today reports that Atlanta’s Airport has opened five mini-suites for travelers to nap in while waiting for their flights.
Extensive personal suites including spas and showers for travelers have been common throughout Europe and Asia, and now have spread to American airports.
American airports have always been seen as a hectic environment where everyone is hurrying. But now, thanks to Mini-Suites, travelling in airports can be experienced as a more leisurely atmosphere with accommodating spaces.
For $30 an hour you can rest and freshen up for your flight in your own space, away from the hectic rush of other travelers and uncomfortable benches. $7.50 is added to every additional 15 minutes in the mini-suite.
With all the luxuries included in the suite, families and individuals travelling for business or pleasure can rent a room for an hour to not only nap, but get ahead of their work in peace and quiet.
Extra time waiting for a flight can be enjoyed more leisurely in these mini-suites, from watching a television show, to surfing the internet, to napping.
Due to heightened security, delays, and cancellations, flyers have to stay occupied longer within the airport. U.S. Airports took initiative to add more shops and restaurants to entertain waiting travelers.
Nashir states that the airports are interested in keeping their travelers as happy and comfortable as possible so they were interested in giving mini-suites a try.
Vancouver International Airport has tried something similar to mini-suites, MetroNaps’ sleeping pods. However, because of lack of demand, sleeping pods were discontinued.
Unique Retreats will open next year in San Francisco International Airport. They will install 14 rooms that have curved walls instead of corners. This gives the feeling of having more space.
Luxuries will include a bed, desk, a 32’ television and WiFi with the option of movie rentals.
Edo Traveler Suites are being built in Canadian and American airports that include similar luxuries as mini-suites. However, additionally, private toilets and showers will be included in these rooms.
