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.

You need to get a transportation card and fill it up with some cash or get a single way ticket to get on board. From the Airport to Seoul station, it takes about 55 minutes with the express train. Note that you can also take...More

We were told that the express train was not worth the expense, as it was only about 15min faster than the all stop train. But we took the express train anyway, just for the experience. It was a quick and convenient way to travel between...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.
