Airport Dimensions announces acquisition of ONGROUND Hospitality

By Jas Ryat

With this new deal, Airport Dimensions will enhance the passenger experience through the elevation of its shared lounge concept and expand its overall network

Airport Dimensions, an award-winning global provider of premium shared lounges, has announced the acquisition of ONGROUND Hospitality and the Sleep Lounge brand sleep ’n fly.

Following its win of the Abu Dhabi Midfield Terminal lounge contract in January 2019, this new deal will expand Airport Dimensions’ range of dedicated airport products and services and the company’s presence in the Middle East.

ONGROUND Hospitality is a provider of a range of innovative airport service solutions. In 2013, it opened the world’s first airport Sleep Lounge to meet the requirements of transit travelers in need of a power nap or an overnight sleep. The concept provides sleep pods and cabins, which operate on a pay-by-the-hour basis. To date, the company has granted hundreds of thousands of passengers with a convenient and comfortable place to rest and relax.

With sleep pods located within regular third-party lounges under a separate pod-in-lounge concept, the sleep ‘n fly Sleep Lounges are currently available at Terminals 1 and 3 at Dubai International Airport. The first sleep ’n fly lounge outside of the UAE will be launched in the near future at another major hub.

Sleep ’n fly is already popular with Priority Pass and Lounge Key lounge membership customers. Online booking is available at sleep-n-fly.com and other leading travel websites, giving travelers plenty of options to book in advance for some rest or a private space for social distancing.

“We’re delighted to be joining the Airport Dimensions family. We’ve had an established relationship with Collinson (Airport Dimensions’ parent company) since 2017 and this latest deal represents the natural evolution of our growing partnership.

We’re looking forward to working with our new colleagues to grow the sleep ’n fly brand internationally and continuing to bring first-class hospitality to travellers in the Gulf and beyond,” says Oliver Schulz, Managing Director, ONGROUND Hospitality.

“ONGROUND Hospitality is a successful and well-established business. It’s a great fit for Airport Dimensions, as we share the same passion and vision for delivering outstanding customer experiences.

We know passengers want more choice and exciting new products at the airport and our first ‘non-traditional’ lounge concept enables us to explore a wider range of experiences for our customers.

We’re planning to expand sleep ’n fly at Dubai International Airport and other global high-profile transit points whilst seeing many opportunities to incorporate this innovative concept into our future development plans,” includes Errol McGlothan, Managing Director, Airport Dimensions.
