No KTX at Incheon Airport

Many people ask why they cannot book KTX from or to Incheon.

The reason is that service is suspended. You must now change at Seoul Station. Use AREX between ICN and Seoul

No. This information has not been released.

It is however no big deal. Changing at Seoul station is dead easy and trains between Seoul and Busan are FAR more frequent than the old trains direct to/from ICN were. Trains from Seoul to ICN are about every 20 minutes

Express trains are every half hour, all stop trains are about every 10 minutes.

You can also check in at Seoul station for a number of airlines and you can go through exit immigration check there, saving time at airport.

Does the Korail pass include AREX? Or do I purchase a separate AREX ticket and then use my Korail pass for the Seoul to Busan KTX train?

AREX is its own private line, cannot use KORAIL pass.

Just giving ethelman2's helpful post a fresh boost up, since the matter of KTX services to/from ICN has come up again in recent threads.

In addition, here's a link with some background information:

I am boosting this post up simply because people continue to seek KTX at ICN. There is NO KTX at Incheon (Terminal 1 or terminal 2). To travel south or east you take AREX Express or Commuter train to Seoul station, and take KTX from there.

Korail officially announced No more KTX from ICN because passengers are too low.
