KTX From Incheon Airport to cities across Korea

 

Toronto, Canada.  June 30th, 2014. – Beginning today the KTX (Korea Train eXpress) will carry passengers to and from Incheon International Airport and cities across Korea.  The service is expected to improve convenience for travelers with more than 20 trains per day. 

 

Director Doojo Kim of the Korea Tourism Organization Toronto office explains that “prior to the KTX Incheon Airport service, travellers taking trains throughout Korea were required to transfer at Seoul Station to either limousine bus, AREX train or taxi to get to the airport.  Now travellers can get directly to the airport with the new KTX airport service.”

 

The trains will run on the existing tracks from Seoul to the Incheon airport taking 45 minutes.  This new service is one of many launching prior to the Winter Olympics being held in Pyeongchang in 2018.

 

The fare using the new KTX airport service from Seoul Station is 12,500 won (US$12.20), while the fare for trains coming from Yongsan Station is 12,800 won.
