Traveling internationally with family, children and adults of all ages can be challenging. Everyone is either in a hurry or overwhelmed and taking your time doesn’t seem to be an option. With high expectations for South Korea’s largest airport, Incheon International Airport’s new endeavor is expected to provide guests with a positive, efficient travel experience.

 

Just in time for the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea, Incheon International Airport plans to unveil an all-new terminal. Officially debuting weeks before the opening ceremony, Terminal 2 will be primed and ready to go long before athletes, officials and fans flock to the Olympic Village for the Winter Games from all around the globe.

SkyTeam alliance members Korean Air, Air France, KLM and Delta Air Lines will use the new Terminal 2, expected to allow Incheon International Airport to now host more than 70 million passengers annually. That is a whopping 20 million more passengers than the existing airport can accommodate, further positioning Incheon as one of the top airports in the world.

 

Expect the new terminal to be completely independent of existing Terminal 1 and completely self-sufficient. Terminal 2 is expected to boast even shorter wait times than its predecessor, from check-in to boarding. The innovative technology and design of the terminal is expected to expedite Incheon’s turn-over time, traffic and service capabilities to contend as one of the top hubs in the Northeast Asian region.

The airport’s innovative modern design and floor-to-ceiling windows showcase the country’s architectural flare, while still appealing to families with small children, looking for convenience and less attracted to design. Traveling families know to stop in the many kid-friendly lounges and enjoy the airport’s outdoor space.

 

Any die-hard fans and families looking to attend the 2018 Winter Olympics, prepare for your trip with some need-to-know information and expert suggestions here. Bundle up and sport your country’s colors for next year’s Winter Olympic Games.
