Incheon Airport is making a new leap forward
into the future as the global leading airport!
President & CEO
Incheon International Airport Corporation
Welcome! My name is Bon-Hwan Koo, President and CEO of Incheon International Airport Corporation (IIAC).
Incheon International Airport, which opened in 2001, is serving people safely and conveniently with our finest services and operational experience. With our pride and responsibility as a gate to the Republic of Korea, Incheon Airport has newly established what standard international airport services should be and become an airport loved by people around the world.
With the groundbreaking ceremony of a four-stage construction project last year, Incheon Airport is pushing ahead with the construction project to expand the airport as one of the top three global airports with a scale of accommodating 100 million annual passengers by 2024. With the opening of duty-free shops at Incheon Airport's Arrival Hall and expansion of the automated immigration system (Smart Entry Service), we have continued to innovate our competitiveness, and as a result, the number of passengers surpassed 70 million last year for the first time since the airport's opening and the number of flights exceeded 400,000.
Incheon Airport, however, will not rest on our laurels but take another step towards the new value generating Airport Economic Zone. Based on our foundation as a hub airport in Northeast Asia, Incheon Airport will develop into a new center of growth which generates global economic activities as different industries converge, such as the cutting-edge ICT and MICE industries as well as the aircraft maintenance and international logistics industries. By reinventing ourselves as the most dynamic and creative industrial ecosystem which attracts global companies and talented individuals, Incheon Airport will become a place that creates decent quality jobs.
In line with the Fourth Industrial Revolution, we will introduce state-of-the-art technologies such as artificial intelligence, big data, robots and biometric recognition, and lead innovation as a smart airport that maximizes efficiency across airport construction and operation. With our fastest, easiest and safest services, we will continue to develop technologies and invest in facilities to ensure that every second you spend at our airport is convenient and comfortable. Furthermore, we will safely and impeccably operate the airport and remain committed to zero accident and shutdown.
The driving force behind Incheon Airport's success today is the full support from the citizens and local communities. To give back, we will make people's happiness and local development our top priorities and provide our support to the fullest such as by carrying out social corporate responsibilities, performing talented individuals, and promoting small companies and startups.
I hope your support and encouragement remain with us when we challenge ourselves passionately to charter a new future for Incheon Airport.
