Share Your New Year Greetings! Incheon Airport Year-End Campaign

happy new year 2020

Hello, welcome to the Incheon Airport official blog.

This past year flew by and we’re already waiting for the new year, 2020 coming.

Holiday seasons always leave us bitter-sweet, but how are you doing?

At Incheon Airport, we get a lot of people rushing through their ways to an end-of-year trip with their beloved ones

So we prepared a special event ahead of this new year coming

This event is for people from Terminal 1 and 2 to share their new year greetings with each other.

The event was held from Sat, Dec 14th to Wed, Dec 18th

And for that five days, visitors shared their warm greetings before taking off for their trip

Hop along as I go over the special year-end event we had at Incheon Airport!

We also prepared a 2020 photo wall in the other corner for people to experience our elegant Korean traditional clothes, Hanbok, with their family and friends and leave another memorable moment in a piece of picture.

We offered a picture post-card on the spot for people to take along their trip.

Incheon Airport hopes this Hanbok experience can be left as the last piece of special and precious memory from Korea.

Flight Cancellations due to heavy snow? Not for Incheon Airport! It has been taking care of by snow removal training!

snow removal training

What comes in your mind when you look at the snow falling from the winter sky? Beloved family, friends, or maybe winter snacks ^^


However, for those of you planning to fly abroad for your holiday trips would not think the same. Perhaps there is a high possibility for your flight to be cancelled due to the bad weather.


But need not to worry! Because Incheon Airport has well-prepared for flight safety in snow storm and bad weather 😊


Here is the story of snow removal training done by Incheon Airport!

To tell you the truth, snowy weather is surely one of the biggest obstacles for flight management, especially for Incheon Airport where aircrafts depart and land in 250km/hr. When we have snow in the runway, we face difficulties in landing or if we have ice on the aircraft and it freezes the engines, it could even endanger our passengers’ safety.


So we always keep ourselves busy to remove snow on the runway and ice load on the aircraft for safe flight management. Thankfully, Incheon Airport is proud to announce that we have come to safely manage 160,000 hours of non-cancellation flights.

Quick side note! Then how do we take care of the snow piled up on the aircraft?


We first take the air injector to remove the snow piled up on the aircraft and then shoot out the left-over ice with the ice melt and prevent from getting it clogged again by spraying the de-icer. This method of work is called ‘de-icing’ which can simply be thought as removing the ice left on the aircraft surface and preventing it from getting iced up again.

We are fully and systematically equipped in all snowy conditions with around 200 workers responsible for the de-icing service, total of 74 machinery, 600,000 L of de-icer liquid, and 700t of de-icer for high-levels.

De-icing procedure

De-icing procedure is operated with several other related branches including Incheon Airport corp., Seoul Regional Aviation Admin., airlines, ground pilots, etc. As it is done by cooperation between other corporations, a flexible cooperative system is a key.


For this reason, Incheon Airport has started a ‘Snow Removal Training Sessions with Related Branches’ on November 15th for immediate response to airport management and safety issues. We had come together to build a cooperative system in between branches with readiness to extreme weather conditions like winter storm and snow.

Also, we will build an ICE HOUSE at Control Tower 2 to work with ground pilots for the service efficiency and workers’ safety. Now, I don’t think you would have to worry about your flight being cancelled due to heavy snow, wouldn’t you?
Incheon Airport will make our fullest efforts to ensure the safety of airport management and your safety during winter times with snow removal training session.

*One quick tip! Stay tuned for our official YouTube channel, ‘Incheon Airport TV’ to check out our snow removal training session! Thank you 😊
