WELCOME TO ONGROUND HOSPITALITY!

So who are we and what do we do? The answer can be as short as five simple words:

AVIATION

PASSION

TRAVEL

COMFORT

INNOVATION

The longer story goes somewhat as follows:

ONGROUND Hospitality is part of the ONGROUND Group with deep roots into aviation. But as the name suggests we stay ‘on-the-ground’ rather than in the air, providing an array of services and products to international airports and their stakeholders.

Late 2013 saw the launch of ONGROUND Hospitality at Abu Dhabi airport with the opening of the world’s first dedicated Sleep Lounge at an airport. Neither a hotel, nor an airport lounge in the classic sense, our unique Sleep Lounge concept caters to the requirements of airline transit travellers in the need of a power nap, a full night’s sleep, or anything in between.

Apart from our complementary range of branded merchandise items we offer our guests SLEEP on a pay-by-the-hour basis! Plus, of course, convenience, flexibility and prime locations inside the transit areas of the airport terminals.

Whether single travellers or shoppers, couples, or even families, our mix of different types of Sleep Pods and Cabins provide for a comfortable way to stretch your legs and close your eyes. Our Sleep Lounges typically operate 24x7 with dedicated front office and housekeeping teams giving the best of hospitality to our guests; from tucking them into bed to waking them up with our signature hot or cold towels.

Being extremely passionate about aviation and travel, and having experienced long airport transits first-hand many times over the years, we felt the need for a new approach towards airport accommodation. Welcome to ONGROUND Hospitality, where passion meets travel, and innovation meets comfort.

LET US BE YOUR HOST!

Come and enjoy our innovative Sleep Lounge concept currently available at Terminal 3, Dubai International (DXB), and for tired shoppers at The Dubai Mall. Furthermore we have teamed up with marhaba services at Dubai International to feature some of our Sleep Pods inside their marhaba lounges at A, B and C Gates at Terminal 3 at DXB.

We never stop to improve our concept further and look forward to expanding further around the globe. Therefore stay tuned to learn about further Sleep Lounges and Sleep Pods becoming available in the near future!

Meanwhile we look forward to providing you with a place to relax in our existing lounges, either in person, or virtually via our sleep 'n fly website, or sleep 'n shop respectively. So sit back and relax, and let our hospitality teams take care of you.
