FORT WORTH, Texas — Many tired travelers are discovering a new spot for a little rest and rejuvenation at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.
The airport now has a spa in one of the terminals. It turns out the airport spa business is booming across the country.
“We have people walking by. They say, ‘Oh my God, a spa,’” XpresSpa owner Edwardo Rodriguez said. “Our clientele is like, ‘This is fabulous. This is what we needed. We’re so glad you’re here.”
XpresSpa is opening full service spas in airports all over the world offering “massages, manicures, pedicures, facials, waxing,” Rodriguez said.
It caters to travelers on the go, even if they only have 10 or 15 minutes to spare.
Felicia Cook was changing planes at D/FW, on the way from Washington to California, when she saw the sign.
“It was a perfect pit stop — better than stopping to get food or anything,” Cook said.
The spa opened in June and it has done so well that the company is planning to open a second one in another terminal.
The company has 14 spas under construction at airports around the world, adding to the 13 it currently operates, proving it is one arrival weary travelers have been waiting for.
The company’s second spa at D/FW will open in February inside Terminal D.
