Finnair Will Open Unisex Sauna At Helsinki Airport

Posted: Updated:

You've always wanted to strip down and sweat next to your seatmate.... right?

In perhaps the most Finnish move ever, Finnair, the country's flag carrier, will open a unisex sauna at its new premium lounge at Helsinki Airport, CNN reports.

And while the concept of sweating one out pre-flight is...new...to us, the Fins love their saunas.

The sauna fits into Finnair's nearly 4,400 square foot Nordic-themed lounge, which also features Finnish-designed homewear and video projections that reflect the season and time of day. The lounge is set to be open to travelers by July 1.

"Our aim was to create a high-quality, even emotional experience for Finnair's demanding clients," designer Vertti Kivi said in a press release. "Different zones for work, refreshment, silence or bathing are unified with a light Scandinavian design touch, creating a space that clients won't forget."

While saunas are traditionally a nude experience, Finnair recommends the use of towels, according to CNN.
