The airport is located 30 miles (50km) from central Seoul at Incheon.

Information & Facts

Airport Taxis

To catch a taxi into Seoul, exit Arrivals via Gates 4 through 8, cross the street, and make your way to the taxi stands located at 4C~8C. The taxi ride to Seoul central will cost KRW40,000 to 60,000 and take around 1 hour. The expressway toll of KRW7,100 is paid by the taxi passenger. Deluxe taxis are also available; these are more expensive but have the advantage of accepting credit cards. Drivers seldom speak English so write down your destination in a Korean on a piece of paper.

Car Parking

Short and long-term parking, as well as valet parking, is available. Parking lots are accessed via the Transportation Centre outside the terminal buildings and are serviced by shuttle buses.

Car Rental

Avis, Hertz and Kumho Rent-A-Car operate from kiosks at airport arrivals.

City Transfers

An express railway connection is in the final stages of completion and currently operates between Gimpo Airport (which handles domestic flights) and Incheon International. It will reach Seoul central by 2010. Meanwhile, visitors can transfer to the city along the Airport Expressway by public or courtesy bus, or a variety of taxis, from the airport Transportation Centre. The journey takes about an hour and a half. Tickets and information can be obtained from the Bus Ticketing Office at Exits 4 and 9 (indoors) and Exits 4, 6, 7, 8, 11, 13, and 9C (outdoors). There is also a ferry service from Incheon port to Yeongjong-do.

The well-equipped airport has bureaux de change and banks, a large variety of restaurants and other eateries, numerous duty-free shops and a basement supermarket. There is a mobile phone rental outlet and Internet kiosks, pharmacies, saunas, hair salons, a post office and luggage storage facilities.

The official language is Korean.

South Korea's monetary unit is the won (KRW). Currency can be exchanged at most banks and at casinos, and travellers cheques cashed at authorised banks and hotels. Most merchants in the cities accept Visa, MasterCard and American Express credit cards, but Koreans traditionally prefer cash. ATMs at banks are usually accessible only during banking hours, and instructions on the machines are generally only in Korean. Public ATMs at convenience stores and subway stations are generally available 24 hours. US Dollars are an accepted form of foreign currency and can be used as US Dollars in the areas around the American Military bases in South Korea.

Terminal Transfers

The two terminals are connected by moving walkways and inter-terminal shuttles.
