Did you hear about the announcement on Incheon airport’s fourth-stage construction project?
Today, let’s talk about groundbreaking ceremony of the construction project of Incheon airport.
As important as this ceremony takes place, a list of officials from the government and aviation department and press media including Kyung Wook Kim second deputy of Ministry of Land, Nam Chun Park Incheon mayor, and Bon Hwan Koo president of Incheon Airport Corporation.
Global dance group from the TV audition program < America’s Got Talent > ‘Just Jerk’ and K-pop girl group ‘Mo-Mo Land’s special performance took the stage. People were absolutely astonished especially from watching the breathtaking performance by ‘Just Jerk.’
There might be people wondering what the fourth-stage construction really means.
You might say it is new or difficult to understand when hearing the work ‘construction business’ or ‘groundbreaking ceremony.’
I would think of Incheon airport’s construction the same as expanding your house. The larger you get your house expanded by relocating extra spaces and extending them, the more guests you will be able to invite them over. We’re trying to use that same concept to have more visitors coming to the airport with our full wishes for more people to freely come and enjoy Incheon airport.
This groundbreaking ceremony is the start for this business an occasion where we pledge our dedication wishing for a safe and successful business while at the same time promoting our public brand image to the people. Big thanks to the people that came to celebrate the ceremony; we broke the ground with the first shovels full-heartedly.
One quick question! How many visitors do Incheon airport has every year?
Incheon airport reported 14.28 million visitors on the first year of opening and increased by 20 million within 10 years. Reports were showing a drastic increase as the visitors almost increased by 30 million last year.
So, getting into the airport’s fourth-stage construction with more for space holding bigger capacity considering these numbers is not a surprise anymore, right?
The fourth-stage construction details include:
1> Extend Terminal 2> Build Runway 4 3> Expand traffic network
The scale is also magnificent;
60,000 jobs and 13 trillion economic boosts were created during this fourth-stage construction which also played a role in vitalizing the country’s economy.
The most eye-catching keyword from today’s groundbreaking ceremony was ‘World’s Top 3 airports.’
But what does this exactly mean?
You’re able to see Incheon airport’s vision striving to be one of the world’s top 3 airports in international flight passenger capacity and airport capacity. And it’s amazing to see that dream-come-true, isn’t it?
Then, what would Incheon Airport look like after this fourth-stage construction is over? For this time, Incheon airports announced their 5 future goals they’re looking into for transformation.
The first goal is to jump into be one of the world’s top 3 airports followed by Dubai and Istandbul for holding capacity of 1 hundred million visitors at average every year.
Second, to conduct an economic cycle around Incheon airport with different areas of industries like business/R&D, tourism/distribution, high-tech, and MRO(Maintenance, Repair, and Operating).
Third goal is to create a ‘smart operational system’ that grafts high-tech technology such as 5G, biometrics, AI (Artificial Intelligence), and loT to guarantee the visitors’ convenience.
Fourth to build an eco-friendly ‘Green Art’ airport filled a park and garden where cultural performances and art work are held.
Last but not least, the fifth goal is to maintain the airport with flawless operation considering the construction and ground workers’ often in the blind spot.
When the fourth-stage construction finally comes to an end, Terminal 2 will come to look like two of the legendary bird, oriental phoenixes facing at each other. Just imagining terminal of two phoenixes soaring up to the sky to guard the East Asian sky gives me butterflies!
We would love your attention and support until the construction is completed in 2023!
