It brings the airport of Seoul is 7.5 Million square meters of additional space, 72 new Gates, a train station, new Parking – and a lot of extravagance. Passengers expect indoor gardens, waterfalls, ponds with Koi carp and, of course, a lot of new shops and Restaurants.

Home provider Korean Air promises better Service thanks to more Check-in machines and baggage drop-off machine, a more modern and more efficient security control, faster passport control on entry and exit, as well as a high-speed system for the transport of Luggage. But there is also criticism. To play the switch to two Terminals just to the winter could lead to Chaos, fear, some in South Korea.
Because the two Terminals are several kilometres wide. The Transport between them takes according to the Korean newspaper Chosun Ilbo with the Shuttle Bus about half an hour, with the airport train, it takes around 7 minutes of pure driving time. Delicate this is especially useful for day-to-day some 800 travellers who have booked through a code-share Partner Korean Air connecting flights. Many travelers could be wrong to and so their flight to miss. The Management of the Incheon International Airport is aware of the problem. It had decided to postpone the opening, therefore, according to the Play.
