Now when traveling by air, passengers can avoid the bad movie, or talking to fellow travelers and instead get some much needed rest. John Stallcup co-author of ÂHow to Sleep on AirplanesÂ the best selling sleep travel handbook, announced today the launch of http://www.sleeptravel.com. This comprehensive website provides everything passengers need to sleep while traveling. The site includes an online store offering field tested sleep travel gear including earplugs, eyeshades, inflatable pillows, the ÂHow to Sleep on Airplanes HandbookÂ and complete sleep kits for short haul, transcontinental and long haul flights. Also included is a section on the most common questions travelers have about sleep as well as links to helpful travel sites making this the webs only all inclusive source for everything passengers need to sleep on airplanes.
Last year, over America a fleet of 7,000 planes made 8 million scheduled commercial flights - 22,000 a day - carrying 600 million passengers a year. During any given hour 61,000 people are flying over the US on commercial airline flights (most of them wide awake). There are over three million frequent fliers in the US. In 2004, a total of 51,241,357 domestic air passengers flew on 779,680 flights and covered an average of 632 air miles per flight.
As frequent flyer working for multinationals Unilever, McKesson, and Crystal Geyser Stallcup would inevitably catch a quick nap or sleep throughout the flight. ÂHaving flown millions of miles (most of them asleep) during my career as a senior marketing executive, I always arrived rested and ready for anythingÂ More often than not a fellow passenger would ask ÂHow do you do that?Â
ÂAfter explaining the basic techniques for sleeping on airplanes, fellow passengers would inevitably ask Âcould you write that down for me?Â said Stallcup.
With this new website, Stallcup has put his years of experience to work providing field tested sleep travel gear, tips and helpful links for any traveler to get some much needed rest. Whether a short nap on a commuter flight or a good flightÂs sleep traveling cross country http://www.sleeptravel.com has what air passengers need all in one place.
