Looking for a quick nap during your layover? JetBlue has got you covered. Just go to Terminal 5 concourse at New York’s JFK airport, where you’ll find JetBlue’s Energy Pods. JetBlue is the first commercial airline to install these pods in a U.S. airport.
They are offered free of charge on a first come, first served basis. Each traveler is allotted just 20 minutes of nap time. The pods have built-in speakers and also offer you the option to plug in your own headphones. When your time is up, the device will wake you up with lights, music, and vibrations.
“At JetBlue we are always focused on making the most comfortable experience for our customers, both on and off the plane,” said Icema Gibbs, JetBlue’s director of corporate social responsibility.
These pods were designed by the “premier provider of workplace rest facilities,” MetroNaps. Similar pods have been installed in Toronto’s Pearson Airport and in London’s Luton Airport. These pods are being installed in offices, hospitals, universities, and fitness centers. Find out more details about these energy pods in a recent Fortune article.
