    Domestic Flights out of Seoul

    by bpacker Written Nov 29, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Taking a flight out of Seoul is like taking a shuttle bus anyway really. It's a no-brainer, the fares are cheap and you can buy the tickets on the spot. Just head for GIMPO Domestic Airport and aim for any ticketing counter.

    Going by Korean Air is always a cheaper option since this airline is state-owned. If you've got a bit of extra cash, aim for Asiana, the service is better and you can cash in on you star alliance points. Better still, they'll allow you to book your e-tickets online at a discounted price. Here's a sample of their fares(one-way)

    Seoul->Busan (49,520won)
    Seoul->Cheju Island (52,960won)

    Northwest Plane

    I flew this time from Tokyo to Seoul(Kimpo International Airport) on Northwest Airlines http://www.nwa.com/

    The airline offering the cheapest deal at the time I flew was United Airlines

    Previously I have always flown from Fukuoka, Japan to Seoul on Korean Air

    The cost from Fukuoka (buying your ticket in Japan) is around 20,000 yen return. From Tokyo my ticket cost 44,000 return but it's possible to get there for around 30,000 yen if you buy your ticket well in advance.

    *NOTE *
    Korea's new International Airport at Inchon was opened on March 29,2001. This will probably add another hour to your journey into central Seoul.

    For more information on the new airport go to Incheon International Airport

    Seoul Incheon Airport - Great Gateway to Asia!

    by MatthewMetcalfe Written May 21, 2004

    After passing through Seoul Incheon (ICN) airport I have to recommend it as the best transit airport I've been through.

    The airport is clean, open and easy to navigate. There are tons of Restaurants and Shops to waste time in while waiting for a flight.

    A first rate hotel is directly attached and you can rent rooms for hours if you have a long layover.

    Showers and massages cater to overseas fliers and the transit lounges on the upper level are a great place to lose that airport feeling.

    If you are looking for a good airport to hop through asia on and have tired of Japan, give ICN a try.

    Incheon International Airport

    The new gateway to South Korea and Seoul, the impressive Incheon International Airport is now the international airport of choice for travelers. There are tons of flights arriving into the airport on a daily basis. Whether you are coming from America, Europe, Africa, Australia or other parts of Asia, this will probably be your first glimpse of Korea. The attendants are friendly and cheerful. Do take comfortable shoes as the distances are long in this huge airport.

    Getting to Seoul

    by MEdelmann Updated Jan 4, 2003

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Incheon International Airport

    All international flights arrive at Incheon International Airport. It is situated in Incheon which is about 50 kilometres from Seoul in western direction. It was openend it 2001 and built on an island.

    Domenstic flights arrive and depart at the old Gimpo Airport. But some cities (like Busan) can be also reached directly from Incheon Airport.

    Airport tax is 15.000 won for international flights and 4.000 won for domestic flights.

    The picture on your left shows the new international airport in Incheon. Thanks to Radio Korea International in Seoul for this postcard! (It is not allowed to take photos of the aiport.)

    Airport bus no. 602

    by gcs75 Written Nov 25, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Taking bus no. 602 is a good and simple way to get to Seoul from Incheon airport. Just get up, pay 6000KRW (~5USD), and it takes you to Hapjeong subway station, where lines 2 and 6 cross each other. Hapjeong is the first stop of the bus, and it takes about 35-40 minutes to get there from Incheon.

    by asiamom9 Written Aug 26, 2002

    We always have to take Northwest due to the fact it's the only airline flying out of our small upper midwest town.
    We didn't care much for the Seoul taxi system. Everytime we took the grey taxis the driver got us lost... When we did we took the black taxis and even though they were 3 times as much at least the drivers never got us lost. We actually like the Seoul subway system and have never had a hard time finding our way around ever... Most times if we're not sure where we're going, we stand in the subway under a map and someone always will come up and ask to help.

    Incheon airport... pick up an English paperback at the bookshop, get last minute MAC lipstick, it's sunny and modern. Though I feel ashamed that I can't speak Korean, still it is an international airport... but don't be surprised if most of the airport staff DO NOT speak English! Japanese might help you! And I hear Chinese is gaining in popularity now... ;)
    Use taxis, around $2US from most A-B locations. Again, don't expect the driver to understand English!

    INCHON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT -...

    by jeaniek13 Written Aug 25, 2002

    INCHON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT - I've been told that all international flights will leave from and arrive at Inchon International Airport and that KIMPO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT will be mostly for domestic flights. Most hotels have buses or cabs at your disposal. If you're coming from other parts of Korea, you can opt for a train or bus, in addition to flying. You can take the subway/metro from the airport into Seoul.
    Usually, the most efficient is the subway. Seoul is constructing additional lines, for the time being there are 8 or 9 lines, taking you to many points in Seoul and to the nearby suburbs. You can also take a bus, there are 3 types of buses (for travel within the city). One, the regular city bus, usually of orange/white color combo. Two, the express bus, which is a little more (still cheaper than bus fares in the U.S.). The express buses don't make as many stops and have more comfortable seats. Third, the 'village' bus. These exist as shuttle buses within a neighborhood of Seoul. They usually shuttle people to their local subway station. You can also take a taxi--make sure you ask how much it'll cost. Korean cabbies have fare meters, fares start higher in the evening until early dawn. There are 2 types of taxis: the normal silver colored ones and the black colored deluxe cabs. The black colored cabs base fee is double that of the normal cabs. Just remember that. In comparison to other large cities, transportation is cheap within Korea.

    by carstenj Updated Aug 24, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    From Aus you can fly Korean Air or Asiana direct. I didn't care for it, so I recommend Cathay Pacific via HK which is excellent.
    You will now arrive at Incheon Int. Airport about 60 to 80 minutes bus ride from the city. Tip: Take the Korean Air Bus to the city. It is comfortable, quick and costs you only W10,000.
    Seoul Subway is cheap and efficient. Stations are numbered by line and that helps. A ticket within Seoul costs W600.

    There is a shuttle bus with connects the two airports in Seoul. At Gimpo Airport you can change to the subway (line No.5) or take a taxi to the place you want. The price is 6000 Won.
