Traveling overseas makes me nervous… This time, we will introduce you how to ride the airport railway AREX simply.

First of all, please get off arrival floor to the first floor of basement by using a guideboard with the train mark as a landmark. Since Incheon Airport Station is located on the first floor of basement, let’s first aim to this floor. Both Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 have an AREX stand on the basement floor.

When you come to first floor of basement, let’s look for the entrance to the railway station! The direct train is orange and the general train is blue. If you successfully come to the entrance, we’re sure that there are ticket vending machines that can purchase tickets nearby. People are gathered mostly in ticket vending machines so they will be found soon.

Points to be noted are a direct train is in orange and general train is in blue. The ticket vending machines that can buy direct train tickets are displayed so that the letters “Express Train Tickets” can be seen. We hope you remember this.

If you purchase a ticket according to the screen display, you are ready to ride on AREX. (Those who have T-money can use it if it is a general train.)
