Istanbul Airport sleep pods

Istanbul Airport has installed 25 “sleeping cabins” for weary passengers in need of a nap before or after a flight.

The service, called “IGA Sleepod”, sees cabins rented for €6 an hour between 0700 and 1900, and for €9 an hour between 1900 and 0700.

Disposable sheets and one pillow are included in the price, with extra pillows and blankets available for an additional charge.

The cabins also include a USB port and socket for charging devices, and a storage area for luggage.

IGA is the operator of the airport, which opened in April 2019.

It has an annual capacity of 90 million, which it plans to eventually increase to 200 million.

Though only one terminal is currently open, it is one of the biggest in the world, with four international piers and one domestic over 1.4 million sqm.

Short-stay hotel brand Yotel has two properties at the airport, one airside and one landside.
