Perth Airport trials sleeping pods for international travellers

December 13, 2018 / Airport Technology

Perth Airport has started testing sleeping pods at its T1 precinct for international passengers, becoming the first Australian airport to offer these services to travelers. In collaboration with Smarte Carte and Finnish company GoSleep, the airport has installed eight sleeping pods at its terminal. Perth Airport CEO Kevin Brown said the sleeping pods are intended for passengers who either arrive early or who have connecting flights with some time in-between. Brown said: “As Australia’s Western Hub, passengers connect their flights in a variety of ways, many of those with a short stopover. These sleeping pods provide them and the broader traveling public with a place to relax in comfort.
