Dubai International Airport opens biggest-ever 'Sleep ’n fly' lounge

Sleep ’n fly's fourth lounge will become company flagship

Sleep ’n fly – owned by Airport Dimensions, a Collinson company – is a pioneer of the airport sleep lounge concept, and their latest venue has opened at the world’s busiest airport, Dubai International Airport (DXB), in Concourse B of Terminal 3.

With an impressive split-level design and a wide variety of new features, the expansive 575 square-metre footprint provides a total sleep capacity of 46. 

Sleep options include a range of cabins and Sleep ’n fly’s signature FlexiSuite Pods and a dedicated Power Nap area

Additionally, for visitors working on the go, Business Pods are available, along with free lockers.  

Facilities at Sleep 'n fly DXB now include: 

Lounge Lite
The opening of the new lounge also marks the launch of ‘Lounge Lite’ by Sleep ’n fly. This standalone product offers a classic lounge experience at a lower cost than full-service lounge entry.

Featuring private Alcove Pod seating with airport views, Lounge Lite provides a relaxing space and access to luxurious showers with a selection of Ceylonese Ayurveda wellness products from Spa Ceylon, who have partnered with sleep ’n fly as part of their UAE debut. 

Free Drinks
For the first time, drinks are available to guests at Sleep ’n fly, with the lounge incorporating a self-serve coffee station stocking well-known coffee brands, as well as a drinks fountain, which will offer a range of soft drinks and water. All guests at sleep ’n fly DXB B-Gates have access to unlimited refreshments during their stay.

Retail Opportunities 
Sleep ’n fly also is launching a new retail offering. Open to all travellers at the airport, the space stocks a range of travel essentials and wellness amenities featuring brands that have been carefully curated to inspire the modern traveller.

The brands offered include Canadian backpacks and accessories brand Herschel and Sri Lankan luxury wellness brand, Spa Ceylon. Both product lines are making their travel retail debuts at DXB, alongside the Brazilian flip-flop sandals brand Havaianas. 

Sustainable Travel 
To ensure that we deliver an environmentally responsible offering, Sleep ’n fly have invested in using 100% biodegradable fibre-based key cards that are used for access control; leather furnishings made of recycled scrap leather, which would otherwise go to landfill, and a bespoke smart power system to optimise energy and reduce overall usage.

Other sustainability measures include toiletry kits made from bamboo, soft drinks cups have been replaced by glassware and drinking straws have been eliminated throughout the lounge.

Errol McGlothan, managing director of Airport Dimensions across EMEA and APAC, said: “We’re delighted to be expanding our business at Dubai International Airport. Building on our five-year relationship with the team at this prestigious travel hub, this is probably our most ambitious UAE project to date. Multi-tiered offerings will appeal to a wider range of travellers looking for an oasis of serenity designed especially for them.” 

Eugene Barry, EVP of Commercial at Dubai Airports added: “It's great to further develop our partnership with Airport Dimensions with this latest Sleep ’n fly concept. The addition of a combined sleep, lounge and work space allows our guests to use their time effectively at the airport and expands the range of services available for international travellers using DXB.”


Airport Dimensions' Rapid Growth
This latest opening at DXB marks the beginning of a new chapter for Sleep ’n fly as they continue to expand.

Airport Dimensions recently acquired the prestigious No1 lounges portfolio, as well as sleep lounge expert Sleep ’n fly. Using the latest technologies, Airport Dimensions has invested in driving revenue growth for airports and increasing traveler satisfaction with the launch of its first digital service Connecta – a one-stop e-commerce and passenger loyalty platform.

From comfortable lounges to restful sleep pods, and convenient food ordering to contactless collection of duty free, Airport Dimensions aims to improve the traveller experience while critically helping airports maximise non-aeronautical revenue opportunities, retain airlines, and become more competitive.

Airport Dimensions has a rapidly growing network of locations at the world’s leading airports across the United States, the Middle East, South America and the UK.

Its Club Aspire Heathrow lounges were most recently recognised in the World Travel Awards as Europe’s Leading Airport Lounge

Airport Dimensions entered the South American lounge market for the first time in Q4 2021 with the launch of a new brand called Ambaar Club, in partnership with Ambaar Lounge. Airport Dimensions brands now include The Club, Club Aspire, No1 Lounges, sleep ’n fly and Ambaar Club, currently providing value-added experiences at more than 50 airports.

Sleep 'n fly lounge access costs from US$31 and is available to all Dubai International (DXB) travellers; purchase passes online or at the lounge. Access is also available to members of Priority Pass and LoungeKey, both part of Airport Dimensions' parent company Collinson. For more information, visit
