“Gimpo
Gimpo Airport is located at 100 Haneul-gil(Gonghang-dong), Gangseo-gu, Seoul.
The history of the airport began in 1939 as the Japanese army constructed a runway at Banwhwa-ri, Yangseo-myeon, Gimpo-gun, Gyeonggi-do at that time, which then allowed operation of civil aircrafts with its use by the U.S. Air Force, and was then partially allowed use by our country as well from 1954.
Thereafter, it was only in 1958 that it was designated as Gimpo International Airport by presidential decree, and officially began taking shape as an airport in 1971.
Gimpo Airport, which has firmly secured its position as the eldest brother of domestic airports, is not only an airport, but currently provides airport users with further enjoyment with a space of cultural complex, leisure, and shopping called ‘Sky City’.
