This train is very fast and is great if you go to downtown Seoul as often as I do. If you live in Songdo It's actually faster to take this train from the airport than taking the bus from Songdo.

The airport express railroad is a fast and convenient way to get from Incheon airport to Seoul station. It is clean and relatively cheap and I would recommending using this service instead of using the bus or taxi to get from the airport into the city.

It's clean,tidy. So many people😫😫but in general normal standard. Comfortable and safety👍👍I think the stops so far from each other. Forexample we sit from seoul to incheon it took around one hour.

Nonstop trip to Seoul RR Station. If you are staying at downtown Seoul, this would be the best way to go under $10.

Using the AREX couldn't be easier. It is well signed throughout the airport, as well as staff posted at the escalators to ensure your on the right path. The train it's self, is fast about 4 minutes to the departure terminal, and clean, like what you have come to expect here in South Korea. Very well organized!

For anyone fearful of adventuring on their own...don't be! The mass transit system in South Korea & Japan are incredible. In English & Korean the Express train is a bright orange path of signs that lead straight to the platform. The car location is marked on the platform. Assigned seats. 50 minutes later we arrived in Seoul, followed a few... More

The AREX express train is a nice, convenient and fast way to get to Seoul station in about 40 minutes for 8000 won. The girl staff at the information desk was rude and arrogant which does not add up well to the Korea experience especially after Japan where people are so elegant and polite. Korea tourism should train people to... More

The only issue I have with this train is that they it does not come as regularly as the non express. Therefore you can arrive at the airport within 3 minutes as the non express train. Check scheduling, but very enjoyable.

A mark of a true metropolis and a world class airport is to have a convenient and affordable rapid transport between the two. AREX totally achieves this objective. 2 types of trains are in service: 1. An express train to and fro Seoul station with no other stops. 2. An all stop train on the same line but connects important... More

If you want to use the Airport Express and Seoul airport check-in service, first and foremost, do not be late. Korean Air, Asians Air, Jeju Air and China Southern provide the check-in service there, I am not sure about other airlines. The check-in counter will accept your luggage if you are minimum 3 hours before your flight. Sequence will be... More
