Introduction
The major gateway to the Honam area, Gwangju Airport is located about 5.8 kilometers to the west of Gwangju City Hall. The Gwangju Airfield was built in Hak-dong, Gwangju on November 16, 1948, and the first private aircraft (a DC-3) was operated there on February 10, 1949. The airport was moved to its current location on January 10, 1964, after which passenger services like the passenger terminal and taxiway were constructed. Since the 1990s, the airport has been operated by the Korea Airports Corporation and now consists of a passenger terminal, a freight terminal, a runway, a taxiway, a parking ramp, and parking facilities with space for up to 933 cars.
