NEW YORK, Oct. 04, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- XpresSpa, the industry-leading luxury airport spa company and a wholly owned subsidiary of FORM Holdings Corp. (Nasdaq:FH), today announced the grand opening of its first full-service spa at Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT) located within Concourse D.  With the addition of this full-service spa, XpresSpa now has two locations in CLT, including a kiosk between concourses A and B.

Charlotte Douglas International Airport is the ninth busiest airport in the United States, serving nearly 45 million passengers in 2016. Concourse D is home to several luxury retail stores and well-known restaurants which are supported by both domestic and international flights that utilize the concourse's 13 gates.

"This opening further reinforces XpresSpa's leadership position as the premier brand of luxury airport spas.  In addition to the kiosk that opened last year, this spa is the first of multiple full-service spa locations which we expect to open at Charlotte Douglas International Airport.  This is consistent with our dual growth strategy of opening spas within both new airports as well as within airports in which XpresSpa already has a presence," said Ed Jankowski, CEO of XpresSpa.  "We expect to open a second full-service location at CLT this calendar year in an adjacent concourse, which puts us on pace to achieve our accelerated unit growth goals for 2017." "We are thrilled and very appreciative of this opportunity to continue expanding our long-standing relationship with Charlotte Douglas International Airport and to deliver XpresSpa to travelers," said Gregg Paradies, president and CEO, Paradies Lagardère. "This unique service offering will be a great complement to the airport and a strong fit for the passengers in this market."
