JetBlue has installed napping pods at the JetBlue Terminal 5 concourse inside New York’s JFK Airport.
The four new JetNap EnergyPods offer passengers a chance to recharge and overcome travel fatigue with a free 20-minute “JetNap”.
The pods are available free of charge on a first-come, first-served basis.
JetBlue is the first commercial airline to introduce the EnergyPods to U.S. passengers.
Similar pods are already available at Toronto’s Pearson Airport and the Aspire Lounge at London’s Luton Airport.
The pods feature built-in speakers with soothing rhythms to reduce background noise and passengers can also plug in their own headphones. There are internal storage bins to secure personal items and passengers are awakened with a combination of lights, music and vibration.
