About Airport ZZZ

Welcome to Airport ZZZ(or Airportzzz.com)!

I am Nate Kip and I run this site with a few of fellow my globe-trotting-consulting researchers and writers.

I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Economics, concentrating on finance, from St. Lawrence University in Upstate New York. Following my graduation, I dedicated seven years to the finance industry, specifically within the Clean Energy Sector, before transitioning into travel consulting.

I started as an analyst at General Electric and later tried launching a fintech startup but wasn’t really able to scale it…let’s just say it was a wild ride! Learned a lot!

This brought me to my passion for globe-trotting. Once I realized I could jet-set while helping fellow travelers and sustain my lifestyle, there was no turning back. Wanderlust took the wheel and I never looked in the rearview mirror.

Before my wallet proclaimed “abort mission,” I actually endeavored to book flights and visit different airports to enrich my airport content development. Fancy huh..Just fly from New York’s JFK to UK’s Heathrow just to spend time sleeping in different spots in airport terminals and back.

My aim being to provide firsthand insights and a richer perspective to my work as an expert in airport sleep and specifically on emerging sleep technologies. Unfortunately, the high costs associated with these bookings led to a swift reassessment of my plans, prompting a strategic pivot to alternative methods of gathering the necessary information without straining my financial resources.

So, I’ve been sneaking in airport exploration during my regular travels—mostly domestic flights within the US and a few international escapades to places like Kenya. Asia remains an elusive destination for me, but hey, it’s good to have a least-traveled spot on the map! ✈️😄

With 500+ layover hours, you could say I like airport terminals more than my home

I’ve spent a whopping 300+ hours on layovers, some intentionally to explore airport terminals and their sleep tech options. From sleep cabins to pods to capsules, I’ve become a connoisseur of innovative snooze solutions. I’ve even dabbled in compact airport cabin hotels with beds that transform into chairs.

Who needs a vacation when you can have a sleepcation, am I right? 😴✈️

Call me AirSleepert or AirZZZspert (Airport Sleep Expert)

You can just call me AirSleepert, the Airport Sleep Guru. I’m practically a pro at dozing off in terminals! 😴✈️.

I’ve practically taken root at JFK with all the layover hours I’ve clocked. I could probably navigate all the nooks and crannies blindfolded! At this time, I can dictate those final boarding announcements in all JFK terminals and not miss the airline name.

With my extensive knowledge of airports, especially JFK, I’ve been thinking that if this site doesn’t become sustainable soon, my backup plan charm PANY management (JFK owners) to hire me to manage their information desk. I’d make a great one!

Curious snoozing flier:

I don’t just snooze around and interrogate airport sleep tech. I’m on a mission to uncover the secrets of the slumber in transit.

Particularly, I have been very curious lately about the place of traditional airport hotels located within airport terminals and those close to airports in light of airport sleep innovations.

The allure of their usual enticing offers of complimentary free shuttles and free breakfast is diminishing at certain airports where in-terminal sleep solutions are readily available and thriving. It’s been fun to observe that.

I am here to help

In a nutshell, I’m here to rescue tired travelers like you from pricey hotels and uncomfortable airport benches and get them to the comfort of the latest sleep tech gear.

My singular mission?

Finding you the perfect sleep setup at the airport, whether it’s a cozy airport hotel or a futuristic sleep pod so you can snooze in style!

If you need Airport ZZZspert when on a layover, that’s what I am here for…to help travelers like you find the most comfortable sleep solutions at airports.
