Airside facilities overviewFor optimal operation of aircrafts, Runway 4 as well as taxiways, 62 passenger aprons, and 13 cargo aprons will be constructed.
Also, for safer navigation of aircrafts, deicing aprons, MRO (maintenance, repair and overhaul) facilities, navigation aids, etc. will be expanded.
- Runway Construction of Runway 4 (3,750m×60m) (2.33 x 0.04 mile) will increase the number of flights per hour from 90 to 107.
- Taxiways Construction of High-speed exit taxiways and taxiways will reduce the runway occupancy time from the 70-second to 50-second range.
- Aprons 62 passenger aprons (34 terminal aprons, 28 remote aprons), 13 cargo aprons, 11 deicing aprons
MRO (maintenance, repair and overhaul) facilities → Enhanced performance
FBO (fixed-based operators) facilities → Premium service

Runway 4 navigational aids
Instrument landing system (ILS) provides guidance and distance information so that airplanes can safely navigate through bad weather (fog, etc.). It is a landing guidance system that enables the pilot to land the plane following only the instrument.
Aeronautical light facilities, which include approach lighting system, runway lighting system, etc., provide visual information needed for airplanes to safely make the landing.
Runway 4, which uses facilities suited for CAT-III, provides a precision system that makes landing possible even when the visual range is only 75m.
Establishment of aeronautical light facilities suited for the CAT-lll runway protocol
Approach lighting system (ALS)Runway lighting system
Localizer Provides runway center line information to airplanes taking off and landingGlide Path Provides landing angle (3˚) information to airplanes
Marker(Inner/Middle) Provides position information of the designated space with runway thresholds
Types of taxiways
|Entrance Taxiway (90°)||Construction of entrance taxiways will facilitate aircraft movement between the terminal and aprons.|
|High-speed exit taxiway||Construction of High-speed exit taxiways will reduce the runway occupancy time of aircrafts. ※ High-speed exit taxiway: The diagonal taxiway that expedites aircraft getting off the runway after landing at high speeds|
|Parallel Taxiway||Construction of parallel taxiways for Runway 4 will facilitate aircraft movement. ※ Parallel taxiway: The taxiway that runs parallel to the runway to help the aircraft move without making turns or u-turns|
High-speed exit taxiway Runway occupancy time: Reduced from the 70-second to 50-second range
Entrance taxiway(90°) Facilitates aircraft movement to aprons
Aprons62 passenger aprons, with attached aprons and remote aprons for T2, as well as 13 cargo aprons will be newly built to facilitate airport operation.
- T2 attached apron (34)
- Remote apron (3)
- Northern remote apron (25)
Attached apron: An apron adjacent to the terminal. Boarding on the aircraft though the passengers boarding bridge.
Remote apron:: An apron remote from the terminal
- MARS ※ Multi-Aircraft Ramping System: An aircraft stand designed to allow two small aircrafts to park inside a parking space for one large aircraft (or vice versa)
- Deicing apron (11) ※ An apron equipped with facilities for removing frost, ice, snow, etc. to maintain the aircraft surface clean in winter

Aircraft stand status (cargo not included)
Apron is an area designated for aircraft parking, loading, unloading, fueling, etc. within the airport.
The apron construction plan reflects future aviation demands and fuel mixture ratios. The plan is to construct 62 passenger aprons, which consist of 34 terminal aprons and 28 remote aprons, as well as 13 cargo aprons through the phase 4 construction.
After the phase 4 construction, the total number of aprons will be 225, and they will be used to appropriately respond to the rapidly growing passenger demand.
MRO, FBOEstablishment of a one-stop maintenance service system for MRO will enhance aircraft navigation safety and improve aircraft performance. Also, with establishment of navigation aid facilities for FBO, premium services will be provided.
MRO (maintenance, repair and overhaul) facilities: For safer navigation and improved performance of aircrafts, large-scale maintenance facilities will be established during the phase 4 construction.
Development of the aviation industry: The facilities secure the airport's competitiveness in aviation maintenance and strengthen the basis for competing in the MRO market.
Improvement of navigation safety: Aviation maintenance is a basic function provided in an airport for maintaining safety in navigation.
Improvement of on-time rate: The facilities reduce the number of flight delays and cancellations and improve the airport's competitiveness.
Strengthening the airport's competitiveness: The facilities strengthen the basic support functions of the airport and establish its competitive edge.
MRO : Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul
With establishment of FBO (Fixed-based operators) facilities, the airport will provide premium services.
The facilities will provide various aviation services targeting general aviation (GA).
The facilities will provide differentiated premium services tailored to customers of integrated resorts.
Associated facilities such as terminals, taxiways, aircraft stands, and parking lots will be established.
FBO: Fixed Based Operator
