Frankfurt International Airport in Germany has unveiled its new facility of 'silent-chairs' with the aim to provide new relaxation opportunities to its passengers.
The introduction of silent chairs are a part of the "Great to have you here!" quality service programme launched by Fraport AG, which operates Frankfurt Airport.
With the launch of this new service, which according to Fraport is a "perfect way to relax in peace while waiting for an onward connecting flight", the company aims at enhancing experience for travellers.
The airport operator was quoted by Airport World as stating: "These arch-shaped chairs noticeably reduce the ambient noise, enabling passengers to listen to their own music thanks to integrated speakers that can be connected to their smartphones, tablets or other digital devices.
"Those wishing to work will also find integrated power sockets, a USB port, and a small table."
Silent chairs are available at gates A58 and Z58 of Terminal 1 and at gates D4 and E5 in Terminal 2.
Fraport intends to to add more silent chairs at the terminals of the airport later this year.
Recently, the airport launched yoga rooms.
Two round-the-clock yoga rooms have been set up at the international airport of Frankfurt near gates C14 and C16, past the security checkpoint in Terminal 1, and near gates D1 to D4, past the passport checkpoint in Terminal 2.
Each room is equipped with yoga mats, cushions, blocks, pad and mirrors that run from floor to ceiling.
This room also has monitor screens that display videos explaining exercises.
