About The Airport

Seoul-Incheon International Airport is located on Yeongjong Island, to the west of the city. With live performances, movie theaters, artworks and museums, this airport is a feast for the eyes. The second of its two terminals opened in January 2018, just in time for the Winter Olympics. Indoor gardens and lighting inspired by sunlight coming through foliage make travelling here a pleasure. Unsurprisingly, Incheon Airport came 2nd in the 2018 Skytrax Best Airport of the World awards, and also clinched 3rd place in the customer-voted World's Best Airport Dining Experience. Condé Nast Traveller readers voted it the 5th best airport in the world in 2017.


Free Wi-Fi is available for 240 minutes.

Healthy Travel Tip

Terminal 2 has plenty of natural daylight and is a great place for unwinding. Taking inspiration from the Bonghwang - a Korean mythological bird representing strength, balance and longevity - it features sculpture and exhibition areas, indoor gardens, and water features including streams, koi ponds and waterfalls.
