Melbourne: Abu Dhabi Airport has been installed with "GoSleep" sleeping pods, which lets travellers take a quick nap before boarding a plane.

The 'pods' are essentially chairs that convert into private flat beds, a website reported.

There have been 10 pods installed in Terminal 1 and 3, with an extra 35 due to be fitted later this year.

According to airport authorities, the chairs, which include a sliding shade, will isolate the passenger from noise, light and crowds.

The pods will be soon upgraded to include internet access and secure storage for luggage and valuables and travellers will also be able to charge their electronic devices on the chair.
