Spa on Air / Jimjilbank (Terminal 1, Basement)
B1 Eastside Incheon
It's in Terminal 1, downstairs (B1)
It's a very simple one with, for the men, 3, 39 degrees centigrade tubs, two saunas co-ed saunas (only one somewhat hot)
a sleeping room, and showers.
it takes a solid 20 minutes to get the shuttle from Terminal 2, after you exit customs. So plan on 30 mins each way. Entrance as just US$9.

In Terminal 2, when passing through customs, I just wrote Jim Jill Bang on the address portion of my arrival card (as I had a 3hr layover). I carry US citizenship/passport. Korean Air, and most other airlines fly into terminal 2. If you don't need/want the tub, Terminal 2 has a lot more to offer, including free showers and a resting area (just ask around).

If you are a total chicken and afraid of riding the KTS to Seoul Station and spend time at a full-service spa, this is your best bet to get in a Jimjilbang experience.

(I will say that I find it MUCH better to go to Siloam Spa just a few steps from Seoul Station. I can grab a meal in Meyongdong nearby and then head to the spa to get in some relaxation in a space that is not so fonfined as the Spa on Air.

That said, this is a $20 USD entrance. No different than other Korean spas, you lock your shoes in a shoe locker, lock your stuff in a regular locker, and get your shower/soaks in. Once you are done, the common areas are fairly cramped and confined. Not much space compared to other spas but if you can get on a couch, you are good to go.

I have a problem with Apocalyptic Snoring, and despite the language gap, I was able to get one of the massage rooms to sleep in for a few hours without being disturbed, which was GODSEND.

Anyway, I get some people are just too gassed to go anywhere outside of the airport and for that, this spa is fantastic.

As others have said you must EXIT the airside of the terminal and go through immigration. When they ask why all you have to say is JIM JILL BANG and you re good to go.

All in all it was a nice place to stay, especially if you are waitng for an 8+ hour flight. Hot pools, showers, and a place to sleep or take a rest at. All though it was a tiny bit pricey overall it's a great place. It's kind of hard to find but just ask the receptionist and you're good to go.

The initial receptionist was very accommodating as I explained I would have to return before starting session. Upon returning I selected the "70" full body oil massage with feel massage include.
I must say I was completely impressed with the cleanness, ease of feeling, and no pressure at all that nothing was going to happen except was expected.
The neck, legs, and feet were dream makers. I was able to fly out with comfort and feeling completely refreshed for my next flight.
When I requested to wash my face, I was take over to a shower area, free, to do so, so clean you could eat off the floor.
Price was very, very reasonable for services rendered.. I will be back. Thank you.

I have been to both the spa in the basement of incheon airport and the transit lounge in terminal 1. The big difference for me is that the spa (which costs $7 usd is located outside security. So if you have a long layover and want to leave then that is where you would want to go. This area does include hot tubs and other services for more money. But it is communal (not a private shower— many naked people all around you showering and freshening up). What I recommend much more to anyone is to use the transit lounge for long layovers. This lounge is only for those with long layovers and they will ask to see your ticket. But it’s right smack dab in the middle of terminal 1 on the upper floor. They have PRIVATE free showers (30 min time limit), a ”napzone” which includes a bunch of day beds in a darker lit room, a relax zone which was a bunch of people on their phones, and a “workzone” which as you can guess has a bunch of outlet and desk space. It’s so nice up there!! However, everyone I asked didn’t know where it was or that it existed. I did have to find this on my own. So the key is when you get off a flight with a long layover, don’t leave the airport. Instead follow the signs for transfer so you are still on the side passed security where the gates are.

If you are super adventurous and want to spend your layover exploring, they do have free transit tours which means free tours to people who have long layovers. They leave the airport and they have a space to hold your bags or you can take them on the bus. The tour include places like shopping districts, temples, a cave tour, casino, etc. they are all at different times so if your layover is long enough you can go on more than one.

This was the most painful massage I have ever had. Would not recommend it at all. It was not relaxing and the massage rooms are small divided walls with not top and they are next door to a loud game arcade area.

Rest assured, they are definitely OPEN again.
Nice new layout.
(The old one was way better.)
You take off your shoes, pay the amount, they give you the key and attire. Go to the locker room appropriate to your gender. Strip naked, store your belongings. Have a thorough shower before you get in the spas. After soaking, shower again, dry off and dress in attire handed to you after you paid.
I don’t what happened to the saunas and steam rooms, maybe they’re in the common areas (which is extra).

I went mid night. It was so busy. No space until 4am. Place is clean. Yes they do bath in Korean style which means naked. I won't say it's a good place to sleep. But it's a good place to clean up. It's smaller and price is higher than others in the city. But it's the airport. The water in the spa did get so hot and become impossible to get in. They also had a dry and wet spa. Not a hotel. It's a spa place you can rest in.

I'd hoped to use the free lounge beds in the terminal but that's only for transit passengers. Since I booked a separate ticket out of Incheon I ended up at the Spa On Air.

For $20 there's ample showers, several dipping pools and sleeping rooms - your choice of the communal rooms with mats and chairs or the sleeping rooms, mats only. You leave your shoes in a smaller locker before entering the changing room and accessing the larger locker for gear.

Hard to beat value.

I left my nice Seoul Airbnb since transportation shut down and I had to be at the airport for an early flight. I called this place beforehand to ensure there was room. I finally arrived after an hour of travelling to a sign outside saying it was completely full (with the amount of suitcases outside, I hope the interior was the size of a basketball gym to fit all of those people though I assume not). The receptionist told me I could wait until 4 am to get a spot (5 hours away). I had to pull teeth to get any recommendation of where I could stay that night and after taking a 20$ taxi to a nearby town, was surprised to find she had recommended a MASSAGE PARLOR (no overnight allowed). She knew full well I needed an overnight situation. I broke down in tears and the nice staff allowed me to stay the night on a massage bed after paying $40. There was no door. I slept a poor 4 hours before my taxi back in the morning (who knew so many Koreans get massages at 2 am?). Can't believe the staff was so unhelpful / (intentionally?) mean. At least it's a story...
