Minute Suites is opening its ninth location in the U.S. at John F. Kennedy International Airport’s Terminal 4, one of the world’s most modern and efficient air terminals. Now T4 customers with layovers before or after international flights have access to a private retreat inside security where they can sleep, relax or work.

Minute Suites is a wellness-based solution that addresses the stress and fatigue caused by air travel. The company will open seven suites and one shower in T4, making it easier for the more than 21 million customers that travel through the terminal each year to not only cross time zones but also combat the exhaustion of traveling for hours without privacy.

Expected to open in 2020, the new location in T4’s B Concourse will feature a futuristic storefront with the amenities that customers have come to expect from Minute Suites.

Minute Suites provides private suites with daybeds inside security at airports where customers can nap, relax or work before their flights or during long delays. Passengers can watch Netflix or DIRECTV or plug into a functional workstation with Wi-Fi.

Locations in Dallas, Philadelphia, Charlotte and Atlanta are in operation. A location at Baltimore Washington International Airport is under construction.

Suites are booked through an app with a one hour minimum followed by 15-minute increments; an eight-hour day rate and a flat overnight rate are also available. Showers are booked separately in 30-minute increments with special pricing for guests renting a suite in addition to a shower. Advanced booking is recommended. Rates start at $42 for an hour plus 15-minute increments of $8.00 to $10.50. Showers run $20 to $30 and an 8-hour overnight option will cost $155.
