Seoul Incheon Int'l Airport

Seoul Incheon International is one of two airports serving the Korean capital – the other being Gimpo International – and it's the busiest of all airports in South Korea.


Incheon is split into two areas – Terminal 1 (or Main Terminal) and Concourse, with a third under construction. The Main Terminal handles flights from local carriers such as Korean Air and Air Seoul, while foreign airlines use the Concourse.


Terminal 2 is scheduled to be opened in 2018, and will handle flights for Korean Air and members of the SkyTeam.


As well as the usual array of shops and restaurants, Incheon Airport has a Museum of Korean Culture, an ice skating rink, indoor gardens and a golf course to help you pass the time.


For those stopping over in Incheon with a wait of more than eight hours, it's possible to book a tour to the DMZ (Demilitarized Zone) that stands between North and South Korea. Some free tours are available from the arrival hall for people with shorter transit times.

 Getting to & from the Airport

Driving hide 

Seoul has a dedicated roadway called 'Incheon International Airport Expressway' for passengers and travellers going to the Seoul Incheon International Airport. The said roadway is connected to other major roadways and motorways from the North to the South of Seoul, for easy access to the airport. From the city centre of Seoul, just follow the directions going to the roadway ramp of the Incheon International Airport Expressway, then follow the signs going to the airport.

Trains hide 

The AREX service is the quickest way to get to Seoul. The express service leaves the airport every half hour, costs 8000 won and takes 45 minutes to reach its destination. A regular train service leaves every six minutes, but this takes an hour to reach the capital at a lower price of 3700 won.


Trains also link Incheon with Gimpo Airport.

Buses hide 

Both public and shuttle buses are available from the airport, which opens up direct routes to hotels and areas of Seoul that are not directly covered by the train service (such as the stylish Gangnam).


Public buses are in the 8000-9000 won bracket, while limousine buses cost around 15,000 won. 

Taxi hide 

Regular and deluxe (black) taxis are available from Incheon Airport, but beware of taxi drivers who approach you in the terminal. A trip directly into Seoul is likely to cost around 50,000 or 70,000 won, depending on the type of taxi you take.


A trip to the city should take around 45 minutes in good traffic conditions.
