Airports in Seoul
The South Korean city of Seoul is served by three airports. The largest airport in the city is Incheon International Airport, Seoul's international hub, where those looking for cheap flights to Seoul will likely arrive. Incheon replaced Gimpo International as the major international hub for South Korea in 2001 and was listed as the best airport in the world by Airports Council International between 2005 and 2012. The airport is serviced by most major international airlines including British Airways, Delta Airlines, Japan Airlines, United Airlines and Air Canada. Secondary airports serving the city include Gimpo International, the city's domestic hub, and Seoul Airbase, where the Republic of Korea Air Force's 15th Composite Wing is stationed. Visitors from Japan, Taiwan and China often fly into Gimpo. Incheon International is about 32 miles west of the city center, located at 2172-1 Woonseo-Dong, Joong-Gu in Incheon City.

Transporting from Inchon to Seoul can be done quickly by using the Incheon International Airport Railroad airport express. The train leaves the airport every 30 minutes, arriving in Seoul in about 43 minutes at a cost of $3.30. Taxi service from the airport is also available, including international taxis that provide drivers who speak English, Japanese and Chinese. The taxi takes about 60 minutes to make the journey, with rates for standard taxi service beginning at $38.50 and international taxis charging a flat fare depending on your destination zone. You can also find private buses at the airport for larger groups. These take about 70 minutes to travel to the city center and cost about $9 per person.
