Gimhae International Airport to Busan KTX

I am arriving around 8:40 pm in Gimhae International Airport and I need to catch a KTX train at 10:20 pm. Is it easy to get a taxi in the airport or do they have long lines? and how long does it take to get to the station?

Is taxi the easiest/fastest choice, any other suggestions on what mode of transportation I should take?

Taxi is definitely the easiest and fastest choice, but the most expensive transport, 17,000~20,000Won plus toll fee 1,600Won.

Because of your arrival time andf airport procedures, taxi is the only way for you...You need to get to the station and get organised.

I am sure there will be taxis. No problem

Have fun

The airport is not large and never too busy. If you can complete customs/immigration etc in 30 minutes and catch a taxi immediately, another 30 minutes, you are at Busan Station at 2140 hrs

I assume that you will have to buy a ticket (s).... another 5-15 minutes after arrival.

You can improve this by buying ticket(s) online.

You plan is possible but there are KTX leaving...

2200

2230

2250 (Sat and Sunday only)

Not sure where you got the 10.20 pm time from.

95% chance you will get the 2230 unless something goes wrong. I would plan on making it.

Plenty of accommodation at the Station

hi there, i'd like to ask how many person/s can they accommodate in the taxi? and do taxi charge additional for the luggage. We are 5 in a group (including a 6-year old kid).

thanks

probably 4 but if you have luggage maybe 3, they don't have alot of luggage space in their trunks
