It is a great airport, I saw a bit of it when I flew into Asia 2 weeks ago, and now I will get to see more of it.
The express train to Gimpo takes about 30 minutes, and the long subway ride into the city takes 50 minutes, so the time savings just get wiped out. I think it's easier to just take the bus instead.

DHL invests $50 M to expand its Express Gateway at Incheon Airport
http://www.mb.com.ph/node/200887

DHL, the world’s leading express and logistics company, today opened its US$50-million state-of-the-art DHL Express Incheon Gateway. Located within the free trade area of Incheon International Airport, the facility spans 20,000 square meters and is more than five times larger than the previous DHL Express facility in Incheon International Airport.

The DHL Express Incheon Gateway will serve as a consolidation and distribution center from South Korea to markets such as Mongolia, northern China and the Russian Far East. In addition, the gateway will further strengthen the intercontinental and inter-regional service connecting South Korea with the USA and Europe.

Dan McHugh, Chief Executive Officer, DHL Express Asia Pacific, said, “Asia remains a key growth area with strong business opportunities in the current economic climate. Between 2004 and 2008, our international express volumes in South Korea have grown by over 50%. As we expect to maintain our growth momentum, our investment in this facility is a strategic move which ensures that DHL is well positioned to tap into the growing demand and Incheon’s increasing role as a logistics center in Asia. With a vastly increased handling capacity, the Incheon gateway will also deliver greater time savings for our customers.”

Backed by a strong inter-continental and regional air network, Incheon International Airport has seen a steady increase in air cargo and is projecting a 67% rise in its handling capability from 2.7 million tonnes in 2005 to 4.5 million tonnes by 2010.

Deok Mo JEONG, Vice President of Incheon International Airport Corporation, said, “DHL’s investment reflects the company’s conviction in Incheon’s strategic role in the region and Incheon Airport’s worldwide quality infrastructure. I’m very happy with DHL’s decision to invest in the facility.”

The opening ceremony was officiated by guest of honor, Mr. Sang Soo AHN, the mayor of Incheon Metropolitan City, who was accompanied by Mr. Deok Mo JEONG, Vice President of Incheon International Airport Corporation and Mr. ByungOk Kang, Director-General for Airport Facilities Bureau of Seoul Regional Aviation Administration.

With the technologically-advanced Incheon gateway, DHL will improve its productivity and strengthen its customer service, which are the first-of-its-kind in the express industry in South Korea. Equipped with a fully-automated sorting system for parcels that includes automatic weight-measuring and X-ray devices, the gateway has the maximum capacity to sort 13,500 pieces per hour, a fivefold increase from that handled at the previous facility. With a six-camera tunnel embedded in the sorting system, the weight and size of each shipment is captured and transmitted to the Shipment Control Library while air waybill details are recorded in the sorting system.

In addition, the DHL Express Incheon Gateway boasts the following features to enhance operational efficiency:

– a sheltered drive-in facility with 25 loading and unloading bays which enables operations to remain unaffected even in inclement weather

– 11 extendable conveyors for loose loading operations which improves processing time and truck utilization as shipments are loaded/unloaded directly into/from the truck

– two singulator systems measuring 21 meters long arrange parcels into a single file to enhance the accuracy of the automatic sortation, distribution and weighing of shipments handled in the gateway.

Brand new 77W for Korean Air on a test flight.
In my opinion, the larger title looks much more balanced on a 77W than the 772.

Incheon Voted World's Best Airport

June 10, 2009

South Korea's Incheon International Airport was voted the best in the world for 2009 in an annual survey dominated by Asian airports.

The survey, by British-based consultancy Skytrax, covered more than 190 airports and is based on the results from 8.6 million passenger questionnaires completed from 2008 to 2009.

Incheon narrowly beat Hong Kong International Airport, last year's number one which came in second, and Singapore's Changi, which fell to third place this year from number 2 in 2008.

Skytrax said in a statement that the final margins between the top three airports were so narrow that at one stage the company thought it would have a three-way tie for first place in the "World Airport Awards."

"Incheon is an airport that has been in the global top 5 ranking for the World Airport Awards during the past 5-6 years, and it is a great achievement for them to secure this premier mark of customer satisfaction," Skytrax chief executive Edward Plaisted said.

The survey evaluates passenger experiences across 39 different airport service and products, ranging from check-in, arrivals, transfer through to departure at the gate.

Switzerland's Zurich airport was the highest ranked European airport, and was also voted the best in the region, coming in at number 4, while Germany's Munich airport was voted in at number 5, the same position it was in last year.

Japan's Kansai and Centrair Nagoya airports were also among the top 10, as was Malaysia's Kuala Lumpur airport.

New Zealand's Auckland airport, which was also voted the best in the Australia-Pacific region, rounded out the top 10.

In the regional categories, Dallas/Fort Worth was voted the best airport for North America, Peru's Lima the best for South America and Panama's airport the best in Central America.

Tel Aviv was voted the Middle East's best airport and Cape Town the best in Africa.

SKorea to spend 3 bln dlrs on Incheon airport expansion
29 June 2009
Agence France Presse

South Korea will spend more than three billion dollars expanding Incheon International Airport to help it compete better with regional rivals, officials said Monday.

Work on the four trillion won (3.12 billion dollar) project will start in 2011 and finish by 2015, the ministry of land, transport and maritime affairs said in a statement.

A second passenger terminal will be built and existing facilities including the cargo terminal expanded.

The airport, now capable of handling 44 million passengers and 4.5 million tonnes of cargo per year, will be able to handle 62 million passengers and 5.8 million tonnes annually once the expansion is complete, the ministry said.

It said the aim is to turn the country's major international gateway into a hub for Northeast Asia.

The project is expected to generate around 80,000 new jobs, the ministry said.

Incheon topped a global poll of best airports conducted by consultancy group Skytrax and released this month.

IIAC signs cooperation agreement with Narita Airport Corporation

IIAC and Narita International Airport Corporation (NIAC) signed an agreement for cooperation on last June 8th.

In accordance with the latest agreement, IIAC and the NIAC will formalize the exchange of senior staff visits, hold workshops and facilitate other working-level contact to share issues of mutual interest as well as positive examples from operation of the each airports. IIAC is especially interested in proposing for a joint promotion to increase sales of duty-free shops in the two airports, in order to surmount the crisis brought on by recent demand decreases for air travel.

Aside from being members of ACI's Asia- Pacific Board, both IIAC and NIAC maintained close relationship while playing leading roles in the EAAA, the organization comprising of 11 airports from Korea, China, and Japan.

Mr. CW Lee, President & CEO of IIAC, stated that the latest agreement goes beyond 'simple collaboration', as it allows each airport to learn what the other does best through sharing positive examples from their respective operations, thereby establishing a valuable opportunity to revamp their respective level of customer services.

Just as Incheon International Airport is for Korea, Narita International Airport is Japan's premier gateway which handled 32 million passengers (8th in the world) and 2 million tons of cargo throughput (3rd in the world) for the year 2008 in international flights alone.
