Quiet please: sleep pods at Helsinki Airport

Helsinki sleep pods

Helsiniki sleep pods

Sleep pods have arrived (again) at Helsinki Airport in Finland.

Back in 2013, the airport ran a test program that included several free rest and relax options.

Travelers favored sleep pods over larger rest areas and that has led to the installation of 19 GoSleep pods at the airport.

Each pod consists of an ergonomic seat that can be turned into a bed. Pillows and blankets are available, carry-on luggage can be stored under the seat and there’s a pull-up cover designed to block out light and noise.

As a bonus – there’s a power plug in each sleep pod for charging phones and laptops.

Sound cozy?

The cost of checking into the sleep pod seems pretty reasonable: 9 Euro per hour – at current exchange rates, about US $10.
