Asiana Airlines Hubs & Focus Cities

  • Gimpo International Airport (GMP). Formerly known as Kimpo Airport, this airport is about 9 miles west of downtown Seoul at an elevation of 58 feet above sea level. With a significant role in the Korean War, this airport used to be the most important airport for Seoul, but the construction of Incheon means that airport has taken over most, but not all, of Seoul’s international traffic. Gimpo has three terminals, two for passengers and one for cargo. Asiana uses both terminals, as one serves domestic flights and the other serves the international traffic.
  • Incheon International Airport (ICN). Incheon was built on reclaimed land between the islands Yeongjong Youngyu, at an elevation of 23 feet above sea level. Incheon is one of the world’s busiest airports and has been ranked the world’s best airport many times. It has two terminals and a concourse. Terminal 1 is South Korea’s largest airport terminal; Asiana Airlines uses Terminal 1.
  • Gimhae International Airport (PUS). Formerly known as Kimhae International Airport, this airport is on the western side of Busan at an elevation of 6 feet above sea level. As passenger traffic is increasing, the airport is working on plans for expansion.
  • Jeju International Airport (CJU). Located on the island of Jeju and serving the city of Jeju, this airport is situated 118 feet above sea level. Because of high passenger traffic a second airport on the island is being planned, near the city of Seogwipo.
