at Incheon International Airport Terminal 2


The opening of Passenger Terminal 2 at Incheon International Airport is now nine days away.

At the new terminal, passengers can self check in for boarding and also check in their baggage. They can even be issued an emergency passport if they forget to prepare their passports.

The check-in counter is ready for customers and the arrival and departure board is also operating normally.

Passenger Terminal 2 of Incheon International Airport is just nine days away from opening, and the construction work is complete, except for interior work at the duty-free shops.

The convenience for passengers at the new terminal has been further improved.

Passengers can use an automated immigration system without preregistration, and they can also issue their tickets and check in their baggage by themselves.

The gates are opened automatically by scanning a boarding pass and passport like this, and passengers can also check in their baggage without any assistance from employees.

The consular civil affairs center of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is on the second floor of the terminal and allows passengers to be issued emergency single-use passports if they forget their passports.

The buses, airport rails and subways are all connected to the terminal in order to ensure that no passenger gets lost on the way back home after their return.

The safety management standards of the control system as well as passenger convenience were also upgraded.

The responsive criteria against fire and terrorism was reclassified using four levels instead of two levels, and it was connected to the control towers of major airports in Japan, China and other major countries to newly implement a system that can adjust the arrival and departure of aircrafts.

<Section Chief Yoon Ji-hyuk / Mooring Control Team of the Incheon International Airport Corporation> “We are connecting to airlines, partner companies, airport corporations along with other control institutions and control systems of foreign airports to control traffic flow.”

About 40% of traffic volume at the existing terminal will be taken on by Passenger Terminal 2 from January 18 onwards, when Korean Air, KLM and Air France move in to the terminal.
