(Nasdaq: XWEL) ("XWELL" or the "Company"), the authority in health and wellness solutions for people on the go, continues its international expansion with the planned opening of five new XpresSpa locations in Istanbul International Airport (IST). Located in the city known as the crossroads of the world, Istanbul International Airport is one of the busiest airports in the world, serving 262 destinations.

“As one of the world’s highest-ranking airports, the new Istanbul International Airport is a great fit for the premium experiences offered by XpresSpa,” said XWELL Chief Executive Officer Scott Milford. “The new, refreshed XpresSpa locations are perfect for international travelers looking for an oasis before boarding a flight. Our new spas provide travelers with the products and services to promote a healthy well-being. We are delighted to open these new XpresSpa locations as the expansion into Istanbul marks another key milestone in XWELL’s transformation and growth.”

Two XpresSpa locations are currently open with one more scheduled to open on November 10. The remaining two locations are expected to open in December. The five XpresSpa locations will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week within the international terminal of Istanbul International Airport.
