Incheon Airport, the largest airport in South Korea, opened in 2001, serving as a hub for Asiana Airlines, Air Seoul, Air Incheon and more. As the primary airport for Seoul Capital Area, it works hard to keep its spot as the main hub in the region. Going beyond aesthetic value, Incheon Airport is revolutionizing airports, challenging boundaries and pushing technological limits.

Before your flight, make sure to visit the Observation Deck, with locations available in terminals 1 and 2. The Mount Oseongsan Observatory Deck in Terminal 1 offers the perfect place to catch a panoramic view of the airport and get a glimpse of airplanes taking off and landing on the runway. If your flight departs from Terminal 2, visit the PR Observatory Deck, where you can enjoy the airport facility as well as view different types of airplanes. If you have time after you explore, head to one of the multiple spas, relaxing rooms or nap rooms. Or pause in one of the many lounges, grab a bite to eat or hit the shops.

Incheon Airport constantly strives to keep up with the changing times. It’s currently in the middle of a four-stage construction project with plans to expand as one of the top three global airports, taking total capacity to 100 million annual passengers by 2024.

Incheon remains competitive with the opening of new duty-free shops for travelers to visit throughout the terminals and with the expansion of the Smart Entry Service automated immigration system. As a result of these changes and other enhancements, the number of passengers surpassed 70 million and the number of flights exceeded 400,000 last year for the first time since the airport’s opening.

Based on its foundation as the main hub airport in Northeast Asia, Incheon Airport continues to develop into a new center of growth, generating global economic activities as various industries converge, such as the cutting-edge technology and MICE infrastructures, along with aircraft maintenance and international logistics industries.

The airport will also transform services in response to the Fourth Industrial Revolution by introducing state-of-the-art technologies such as artificial intelligence, big data, robots and biometric recognition. With the fastest, easiest and safest services, Incheon Airport will continue to develop technologies and invest in facilities to ensure every second travelers spend at the airport is convenient and comfortable.
