Incheon International Airport in South Korea, which already offers a casino, a golf course and a museum among its features, has launched a unique clothes sharing service called Seinustar. This eco-friendly, online-to-offline service rents out clothing to foreigners arriving in the country at the airport, which is located just outside the capital, Seoul.
The idea is that, for instance, travelers arriving from hot countries during winter can lease the appropriate warm clothing for their stay, avoiding the need to bring excessive baggage or buy items just for their visit. To use the service, passengers go to the www.seinustar.com website, choose the type of clothing they want, and the size and the time period, and then pay in advance through PayPal. A deposit must also be made in case of damage.
The Seinustar desk is located near Gate 13 of the arrival terminal, on the first floor at the 71st counter. Travelers pick up their clothing, then return it to the same spot when they leave. Coats, jackets and hats are offered, and during summer the service will provide traditional Korean clothing. The airport says it will also work with local clothing companies and designers to sell fashion lines and accessories.
