Last but certainly not the least is the Wings Transit Lounge right inside the airport in Manila. Renting a capsule costs 1,000 pesos and it already comes with curtain for privacy, toiletries, security box right inside your pod, wifi, light, and of course electrical sockets. Oh and yes, it also comes with unlimited snacks and coffee!
Luggage can be deposited at the counter so you are free to roam the airport or rest in your pod while waiting for your flight. According to reviews, the sizes of the pods are slightly bigger compared to the pods in Japan so it’s good news for those who like space.
