Incheon International Airport, Seoul, South Korea

March 20th, 2006 / / Links: Google Earth, Google Maps, Yahoo! Maps, Virtual Earth / Nearest places

Incheon International Airport (IATA: ICN, ICAO: RKSI) is the largest airport in South Korea, and one of the largest in Asia.

Incheon is the hub for Korean Air and Asiana Airlines. The airport opened for business in early 2001, replacing the international function of the old Gimpo Airport (formerly Kimpo International Airport). Gimpo Airport now serves only domestic destinations, except flights to Haneda Airport in Tokyo. Incheon is a hub for international civilian air transportation and cargo traffic. Security facilities are state-of-the-art and medical inspection equipment is also very advanced, in response to terrorist threats and various epidemics in southern Asia. As a result, Incheon International Airport is considered Asia's most technologically facilitated airport. It is also currently Asia's sixth busiest airport, behind Tokyo International Airport (a.k.a. Haneda Airport, Tokyo), Bangkok International Airport (Bangkok), Narita International Airport (Tokyo), Hong Kong International Airport (Hong Kong), and Singapore Changi Airport (Singapore).
