Measuring 1.4 metres wide, 2 metres in length and 2.3 metres high, the Sleepbox includes a bed, television, WiFi access and luggage storage space. A two-bed Sleepbox has also been introduced.
The Sleepbox – manufactured by Arch Group – is designed to provide travellers with somewhere to sleep if they have a long wait for their flight, while also providing an additional revenue source for airport operators.
