Seoul Incheon International Airport is South Korea's pride and joy. It was recognised as the world’s best airport for nine years in a row by the Airports Council. Incheon International Airport endeavours to lead in airport operational performance and is set to become a global hub. Apart from international flights, Incheon Airport serves domestic flights to Busan, Daegu and Jeju daily.
