Gonghang-dong is a dong, neighbourhood of Gangseo-gu in Seoul, South Korea. The name gonghang literally means "airport," which is due to Gimpo Airport (김포공항, Korean pronunciation: [kimpʰo ɡoŋhaŋ]) located in the area.[1][2]

Korean Air's headquarters, Korean Airport Service, Ltd., and Air Total Service are located in Gonghang-dong.[3][4]

In addition, the former headquarters of the Aviation and Railway Accident Investigation Board is in Gonghang-dong.[5] The facility once housed the headquarters of the predecessor agency Korea Aviation Accident Investigation Board.[6] The headquarters of the ARAIB agency are now in Sejong City.
