Reviews – What People Are Saying
Being considered and rated by SkyTrax as the world’s cleanest airport and the world’s best international transit airport. There’s no wonder why Incheon International Airport has gained so much positive reviews coming from its customers. The big airport has so many facilities that are ready to serve and help every passengers, from check-in kiosks, to indoor golf course, casino, shopping stalls and a wide variety of cafes and restaurants. Here are some of the reviews.
“The building design is nice, a large space with garden area decoration. Many choices of drinks and foods. Easy to follow signs and boards. However, when I arrived, the immigration process took too long. Incheon should have more immigration counters to meet the large number of passengers, I had to wait around one hour. The immigration for departures was much quicker. There was a scale near the check-in counters for us to check whether our luggage was overweight or not which I appreciated.”

“Incheon was an enjoyable airport for my connection. The logistics of making my connection were easy: no hassle with checked baggage, and a reasonable security checkpoint that was well-staffed. The airport had clear signs for directing passengers to where they needed to go. The terminal is clean, aesthetically pleasing, and has fantastic high, glass ceilings. There is a fair variety of food options, and an abundance of high-end shops (although not all that much for more budget-conscious folks). Seating in the terminal is comfortable. I noticed a section of reclined seats for napping, and these looked very comfortable. Incheon has an inspiring, modern feel, and is an enjoyable place to pass time. I recommend this airport for transfers.”

“Incheon is a clean airport. Very clean rest rooms. Good food choices and good pricing – a little cheaper than an average US airport. Duty free is too expensive and a rip off – there are cheaper street prices in the US. Distance between gates is not horrendous and good clear signs. Comfortable seating areas near eateries.”
—Gerry John (United States)
