Transit Tour Program

Independent Travel via the Airport Railway

For those who do not want to make use of the travel packages provided by travel agencies, we recommend taking the Airport Express (AREX). AREX is the fastest and most convenient option for transit passengers to explore Seoul at their own time and pace.
