If you're travelling through Abu Dhabi Airport this summer and are in need of a sleep during your layover, there's a new facility that's just opened in Terminal 3.

Like its Terminal 1 counterpart, Aerotel’s new 24-hour transit sleep set-up offers beds by the hour. Passengers can also choose between two-hour day packages (available for booking between 9am and 8pm) and the four-hour night package option (available between 8pm and 9am).

“Abu Dhabi Airports’ utmost priority is to ensure a convenient, seamless journey for passengers travelling through the Abu Dhabi International Airport," says Saoud Al Shamsi, Acting Chief Commercial Officer (ACCO) of Abu Dhabi Airports. "With more than 20 million people transiting through the airport, the establishment of Aerotel’s new hotel facility cements Abu Dhabi Airports’ position in providing world-class solutions to best accommodate such demand.”

The capital's airport is also home to a more pod-like GoSleep Sleep Lounge within Terminal 3.
