SAN FRANCISCO, April 21, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- XpresSpa Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: XSPA) (“XpresSpa” or the “Company”), a health and wellness company, today announced that it has opened a new COVID-19 testing facility at San Francisco International Airport (SFO).

COVID-19 testing options include a Rapid Molecular COVID-19 Test, the standard Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) Test, and a new Rapid PCR test in the near future.

Doug Satzman, XpresSpa CEO, stated, "We are delighted to launch XpresCheck at San Francisco International Airport. Through our trusted relationship with United Airlines, we can now offer travelers and airline employees convenient COVID-19 testing options at our on-site testing facility. Additionally, several direct flights to Hawaii originate at SFO and we are proud to be a trusted partner of Hawaiian Airlines and the state of Hawaii. As airport traffic continues to increase, we are pleased to be doing our part to make everyone feel more comfortable through this additional layer of safety.”

Lori Augustine, United Airlines’ Vice President of Airport Operations at SFO, said, “We’re thrilled to offer United customers traveling through San Francisco yet another testing option – this time, conveniently located before security inside our terminal – to help them meet the entry requirements at their final destination. United customers will be able to easily upload their test results into Travel-Ready Center and start their travel with peace of mind.”
