Suppose you have a private non-revenue trip with 25 passengers to Seoul with an ETA of 2000 local. The passengers would like to travel to RKSS instead of RKSI, as it’s easier to travel to the downtown area. You start the trip and have all services along with the airport slots and landing permit requested.

RKSS INFORMATION

AIRPORT HOURS: 0600-2300 LCL

GIMPO/RKSS IS LOCATED NEARER TO DOWNTOWN AND IS LESS CROWDED THAN INCHEON/RKSI. BUSINESS TRAVELERS COULD SAVE MORE THAN AN HOUR FOR ARRIVAL OR DEPARTURE AND HAVE MORE CONVENIENCE TO DOWNTOWN BY USING GIMPO/RKSS.

GIMPO/RKSS AIRPORT OPERATION HOURS ARE NOT FLEXIBLE. OVERTIME IS NOT ALLOWED.
