The Arrival of the Airport Spa
Unless you’re incredibly lucky—or have your own private jet—you’re already well acquainted with the aggravations of modern-day plane travel. Overbooked flights, repeated delays, and dragged-out layovers can undo days’ worth of holiday relaxation or turn a simple business trip into a Sisyphean struggle.
Thankfully, a new crop of airport spas—walk-in treatment centers where wilted travelers can rejuvenate with massages, facials, and beauty treatments—are helping air passengers to cope with the strain. You don’t need a first- or business-class ticket to take advantage of these spas—just a little extra time, and the desire to spend it far from your drab departure gate.
