A great service. The 45 minute journey from Incheon Intrnational Airport to Seoul is fast and comfortable. The Express service is 9,500 krw (compared to bus - 15,000krw) and is very easy to find and buy tickets.

The train station is very clean and we use Arex everyday to go to Seoul. The Train is very fast and the seats are comfortable. Wish we had this kind of train in our country.

I used it once instead of a bus. Although I was expected to be faster than the bus I found it slower. Bus still remains the most reliabme way to reach the airport.

I always use AREX when visiting Seoul. Recommend checking the timetable closely as sometimes the trains are not so frequent meaning you have to wait. If you check the timetable, you may be able to spend the wait time in a coffee shop or doing...More

I would definitely take a taxi. They are clean, relatively cheap and the best way to move your crew and your luggage -- especially when jet lagged. Have a safe trip!

My recollection I say you should be fine. I don’t think they offer any other service for airport transfers other than Cab. Super organized there so as long as the 1st flight is on time, you should be good.

You need to catch “all stop train” to Seoul Station. The station you want is one before Seoul Station. Approx 50mins from airport.
