Incheon Airport is South Korea’s largest, and it’s one of the top-ten busiest airports in the world in terms of passengers as well as cargo. An international set of travelers appreciate the airport for its excellent services and facilities, which have earned a rare five-star rating for Incheon Airport and put it in the same category as Hong Kong and Singapore airports.
The airport opened in the early 2000s, so all of the accommodation at Incheon Airport is relatively new. Around 70 passenger airlines operate here, serving destinations across Asia, Europe and North America. This is much more than a travel hub serving tourists visiting South Korea; in fact, it sees just as many business and domestic passengers.
Incheon Airport sits on an island west of Seoul. It’s separate from Incheon city proper, an important consideration when booking transportation between the nation’s capital and its airport. Travelers can get from Incheon to Seoul and back aboard the Incheon International Airport Railroad (A’REX), which recently opened and is still under development.
The hotels near Incheon Airport are located both on the west coast of the island and east of airport grounds off of Highway 130. This particular area is equipped with shops and restaurants, and most of these airport hotels cater for business travelers with ultra-modern conference and business facilities. Commercial tourists usually bypass this bloc of accommodation in favor of hotels in Seoul city center.
