AREX is an efficient mode in going to the Airport from the center of Seoul. Its very comfortable even if you have heavy luggages.

Leaves airport from level B1. I travelled Fri. afternoon, - train was extremely crowded, which was difficult with luggage, & station/stop announcements were difficult to hear. Missed my disembarkIng point, & had to back track. Service seems to have depreciated from several yrs. ago.

When departing from ICN, checking at the City Terminal not only allows to drop your bags in the station but you get to use the crew/diplomat channels for security and immigration in ICN. If you are staying near Seoul Station, this is a no brainer.

This train is very fast and is great if you go to downtown Seoul as often as I do. If you live in Songdo It's actually faster to take this train from the airport than taking the bus from Songdo.

Nonstop trip to Seoul RR Station. If you are staying at downtown Seoul, this would be the best way to go under $10.
