Korean Air and the Hyatt Regency Incheon have teamed up to offer international First and Business Class passengers access to the saunas at the Hyatt Regency Incheon hotel. This is welcome news, especially since the access is provided free of charge to qualifying passengers in First or Business Class arriving on international flights other than from China, Taiwan or Japan.

To gain access to the saunas simply book and fly a qualifying flight. Once you arrive at Incheon International Airport take the free shuttle to the Hyatt Regency Hotel and go to the second floor fitness center (Club Olympus) to present identification and boarding pass, then enjoy.

Korean Air’s Announcement

As of July 10, 2013, First and Business Class passengers on international flights arriving at the Incheon airport will be able to use the saunas available at the Hyatt Regency Incheon Hotel. Come to the Hyatt Regency Incheon when you arrive and get refreshed!

On July 10, Korean Air will introduce the “KAL Premium Arrival Shower Service” which allows international First and Business Class passengers who arrive at the Incheon airport to use the saunas offered at the Hyatt Regency Incheon Hotel at no charge.

This service only applies to First and Business Class passengers arriving at the Incheon International airport on an international flight (excludes flights that depart from China, Taiwan, and Japan), and the service is only available on the date of arrival.

To take advantage of this service, take the free shuttle available at Incheon airport to get to the Hyatt Regency Hotel. Then go to the Club Olympus (fitness center) on the second floor of the hotel and present identification as well as boarding pass. Large baggage can be stored at the hotel’s Concierge Desk.

The Hyatt Regency Incheon hotel offers both dry and wet far-infrared saunas for your comfort and pleasure. It also features individual shower stalls and cold/hot bathtub facilities for rest and relaxation.

Korean Air anticipates that many international passengers as well as business travelers will be utilizing these services.

It’s interesting to note that guests of Club Olympus can also access the swimming pool.

Guests can also use the generous swimming pool connected to the wild flower garden and located under a high glass ceiling through which natural daylight streams in for extra energy.

Bottom Line

Korean Air First and Business Class passengers will now be able to enjoy complimentary access to the Club Olympus fitness center at the Hyatt Regency Incheon.

    Really pointless unless you are staying at the hotel already or very close to it or maybe a long layover.

    For myself, once I land in S. korea, I’m off to doing things other then wasting my time going to a spa/pool that’s out of my way.

    I hope Asiana will match in some way…

    Yeah, because after a clearly 6+ hour flight, the last thing anyone wants to do is get to their destination, they’d much rather wait for a shuttle to get to a hotel they’re not booked at to bathe there. Cool idea if the hotel were attached to the airport it might get some use. Companies drastically overestimate the potential utility of these promos.

    As @Ford says this is a pretty useless idea. Why not head to your hotel and have a shower?

    what is the difference between First class and business class?

    Hi Goals n Dreams – Pretty much the seat and Champagne selection. You can see the Business Class product in this detailed review and a picture of the First Class product towards the end.

    Well, I’m actually in a situation where I think I’ll appreciate this service. I’m landing at about 4am from LAX and planning to check into the Park Hyatt Seoul in the afternoon, but I would like to shower after the overnight flight. This lets me refresh and change and then head to the PH to just drop off my bags and head out on my tours.
