Minute Suites DFW Terminal A & D Cost & Priority Pass

Flying through Dallas and wondering if you’ll be able to get some spot to sleep or just nap?

Like Atlanta Airport, DFW has partnered with the Atlanta-based Minute Suites to operate sleep pods that you can use to nap, relax or even shower at DFW’s Terminals A and D. Out of the 5 DFW Terminals – A, B, C, D, and E, only 2 Terminal A and D have the nap pods.

What are Minute Suites?

They are private suites that offer private sleep solutions that come with a comfortable chair, desk, television, and outlets to recharge your devices. When you want to catch some Zzzs, you can rent the suites and use their daybed for a period of at least 2 hours or if your flight layover is long, you can book an extended stay for up to 8 hours! That’s a whole night’s sleep!

On its website, Minutes Suites explains that its sleep pods were designed by Dr. Sara Mednick, a co-author of the “Take a Nap! Change Your Life” book. Dr. Mednick is an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at the University of California, San Diego, and has done extensive research on the best way to deliver sleep and relaxation in airports.

It launched at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport in 2009 and has since expanded to 9 airports in the US.
