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.

Any news, updates, plans, pics, or renders on this one?

World’s best airport: Incheon International Airport
By Katie | September 8, 2010 (Liligo.com - Traveller's Blog)

It doesn’t take long to see exactly why this airport west of Seoul, South Korea, has been voted the best in the world for the last five years. It’s sleek, incredibly modern and caters to the above average passenger’s needs. Apart from being served by some of the world’s best transportation system, its out to win the hearts of all types of travellers.

Incheon International Airport sets high standards for airports in the 21st century. Actually Asia in general sets standards high, leaving European airports in the dust when it comes to passenger services, transportation and amenities. When it comes to top 10 airports in the word, Incheon takes the cake, with Hong Kong International in second and Singapore’s Changi Airport in third place. 6 Asian airports make up the top in the world followed by Zurich, Munich, Amsterdam and Auckland in New Zealand. If you’re looking for cheap flights to Seoul, this is just a taste of what is waiting for you at the airport.

Incheon for the culture traveller
Culture seekers should head first for Concourse 4 where the Museum of Korean Culture is waiting. A central pagoda is on display, surrounded by various other works of art and artefacts ranging from ancient bells to age-old scrolls. Learning about the richness of Korean royal court culture, the traditions of print-making, traditional art and music is the perfect end to a perfect trip to Korea. Entrance is free and most visit the museum in 20-30 minutes.

The Silk Road of Culture is an artistic initiative by the airport to bring Korean artworks to every passenger whether they have time to visit the airport museum or not. Along the walls of the concourses and passenger terminals there are various artworks displayed by world-famous artists. Check out the Exhibition Hall of Korean Artistic Crafts and the Arrival Hall Culture Street as well.

Incheon for the epicurean traveller
The list of restaurants, cafés and fast food joints is limitless and it’s certain that you can find anything from cheap/easy food while you’re rushing to your gate to a luxury sit-down meal, prepared personally by world-renown chefs. From noodle bars to smoothie stands, Asian buffets to traditional soups… Each terminal can cater to every budget and taste, so don’t sweat it if you’re favourite restaurant is in terminal 1 and you’re flying out of 3. You’re sure to find something equally delicious anywhere in the airport.

Incheon for the shopaholic traveller
Duty free shopping is not a term used lightly around this airport, they’re really serious about it as long as you have money left to spend, you’ll be able to find top quality liquors, perfumes, cosmetics and other goods at great prices. Designer shops selling the best in international and local Korean products are available as well. When it comes to boutiques, Coach, Fendi and Vivienne Westwood are just the beginning.

Incheon for the luxury traveller
“Spa on Air” should be the first stop on any travellers list when arriving at the Incheon Airport. The sauna combines deluxe facilities including a “tub-in-tub” for maximum relaxation. Thai-style massages are provided by local Thai masseuses, private sleeping rooms are available as well. After your spa, head to the airport casino and roll the dice, you may just win the jackpot before boarding.

Incheon for the tech-traveller
Travellers needing the internet can visit any of the uber-modern internet lounge in 3F and 2F. Other services offered there include fax sending and scanning. On the 3rd floor of the Duty Free area is an IT Experience Centre complete with the most cutting edge mobile services, wi-fi, music and more.

If you’ve really got time to kill, head up to the airport terrace, grab a latte and surf the web. With fantastic views of the runway and the bustle of the airport, it’s one of the most popular hang-out spots in the airport.

What more could you ask for from an airport? What services do you like at the airport, which would you like to see? What were your best and worst airport experiences?

Incheon airport privatization stirs debate
Critics say move could lead to deteriorating standards
October 06, 2010 Joong Ang Daily

The controversy over the government’s decision to sell a controlling stake in Incheon International Airport is heating up after a local current affairs program aired an in-depth report criticizing the privatization plan, leading to an online protest by thousands of Internet users.

The government announced last week as part of its budget proposal to sell a 49 percent stake in the airport operator next year.

Incheon International Airport Corporation is assessing the share value and sales price with investment bank advisers who will manage the initial public offering. However, an amendment to a related legislation that would authorize the privatization is still pending in the National Assembly after it was introduced last year. A majority of opposition party lawmakers are against the plan.

The Ministry of Strategy and Finance and the Ministry of Land, Transport and Maritime Affairs justify the privatization by arguing that the airport must be supervised by an agency with operating expertise and the ability to attract more financial and capital support so Incheon International Airport can develop further as a leading global airport hub.

A partial privatization would help boost the airport’s development without the need to increase the financial burden on the government. The government is planning to carry the privatization in two phases, with an initial tranche of 15 percent to be offered by the end of this year and a second tranche of 34 percent next year.

Critics say, however, that the partial privatization of Incheon International Airport would mean the loss of its status as a publicly owned facility and could affect the airport’s service quality and brand image.

Incheon International Airport, which opened in 2001, has been named the world’s best airport by Airports Council International (ACI) for five consecutive years and has received various other global awards.

ACI is a global body whose members include more than 1,700 international airports from 181 countries.

The airport has seen a continuous climb in operating profits and sales each year. In the first half of this year, the airport made 268.8 billion won ($237.7 million) in operating profits on 624.8 billion won of sales.

“Instead of selling its stake to private owners, the government should try offering its expertise on operational success to other overseas markets,” said an industry official. “It will be a pity to see the world-class airport fall into possible foreign ownership.”

According to Realmeter, one of the nation’s leading research agencies, 56 percent of the public that were surveyed are opposed to the privatization plan, while only 15 percent agreed.

In addition, more than 400,000 Koreans have signed a letter of protest that was circulated by the airport’s labor union.

Critics say several previous airport privatizations have failed to achieve expectations.

London’s Heathrow Airport and Sydney Airport in Australia encountered additional problems after they were privatized, while airlines and passengers complained about higher fees.

Nevertheless, an Incheon International Airport Corp. official said, “Although the timing of the stake sale may be delayed, it will still go ahead.”

Duty free shopping upon arrival?

By Bae Ji-sook 2010/10/04 [Korea Times]

Thirty-two-year-old Kim Keong-hye always does her last-minute shopping at the airport duty free shops on her way back to Korea.

“It’s quite heavy to carry all the items on the journey if I shop at Incheon International Airport before departure. If there were shops at the arrivals section, I would be happy to shop in Incheon because the selection at the duty free shops here are better than anywhere else,” she said.

To help globaltrotters like Kim and encourage them to spend their money in Korea, Rep. Byeon woong-jeon of the opposition Liberty Forward Party submitted a bill to the National Assembly Monday to premit the establishment of duty free stores at the arrivals section of international airports in Korea.

“About 660 billion won a year is spent at foreign duty free stores. It is time we open our eyes to being more flexible and practical,” Byeon said. “We need to establish duty free shops at the arrivals sections where tourists can buy goods more conveniently with the Korean won.”

He said there are 111 airports in 62 countries which operate duty free shops at the arrivals section.

Over the past several years, such ideas have been pushed by some politicians but were thwarted by strong resistance from the Korea Customs Office and airline companies.

The customs administration cited that the customs inspection process would become even more complicated and it would be harder to detect drugs and other illegal smuggling.

Airlines also claim that the establishment of a duty-free shop at arrivals could cause huge confusion at immigration and baggage claim, which could eventually harm national image and competitiveness.

“If there were a duty free shop at the arrivals section, people would be running around to shop instead of claiming their baggage, going to the immigration booth and finishing the arrival procedure. The carriers and the airport management would have to carry the burden of leftover baggage and other delays,” an airline company spokesman said. “The association of the flight companies using Incheon airport has officially opposed the establishment for such reasons. Incheon International Airport’s strength is the swift management from immigration to baggage claim among other attributes. We should not damage that,” he added.

However, the resistance from carriers reflects their concern that more duty free shops would undermine their income base from in-flight duty free sales.

According to industry insiders, Korean Air, the flagship carrier, made 168 billion won from in-flight duty free sales and Asiana Airlines made 82.2 billion won last year. Since the business requires no additional space or staff, in-flight duty free shops are considered golden eggs for the airline companies.

“It’s natural that their sales will decline once duty free shops open at the arrivals sectors,” an insider said.

ICN has 74 gates and at most 300 departures a day, plus the same number of arrivals. So each gate is used about eight times a day. The gates in the terminal are used more heavily, for the Korean airlines. Of course if you care to use a non-Korean airline, you schlepp to the more sedate Concourse A, where all the foreign airlines have been exiled.
