Incheon International Airport Station is a railway station on AREX and Incheon Airport Maglev. It is in Incheon International Airport's transport center and currently the terminus. Since June 2014, KTX operated from this station with stops at Geomam Station and Seoul Station towards Busan and Gwangju. Before the KTX opened to AREX, there was high-leveled platform which had no use. Since this time, only this platform didn't have platform screen doors because there was a plan for 2nd Airport railroad to go there. But, this plan has been changed to KTX. After that, KTX started to run, they have changed the empty platform to low leveled-platform to make KTX rideable. In the same year,[2] KTX expanded service to Incheon Airport.

AREX has 11 stations and it is divided into two lines: Commuter and Express lines. For the commuter line, the train will stop in all stations. The express line stops only at Incheon International Airport Station and Seoul Station.

Incheon Airport Maglev can also be accessed from the same building.

  • Fare:[3] Direct train: 8,000 won/adult, 6,900 won/child (the original intended fare was 14,300 won but was reduced to encourage usage). Normal train: It depends on the station embarked, but usually from Seoul Station to Incheon International Airport Station it is 3,950 won.
