History

The airport was established in November 1948. It saw its first commercial flight in 1950. At the time, however, it was not located in Gwangju but in neighboring Jangseong, on a military training facility. The airport moved to its present location in Sinchon-dong, Gwangsan-gu, in 1964. It was taken over by the Korea Airports Corporation in 1990. The Airport terminal now has been constructed on 1994. The old terminal turned into the Cargo terminal.

Location

Situated 11 kilometers west of downtown Gwangju, Gwangju International Airport has two terminals for passenger and cargo, a runway, taxi stops, and parking lot accommodating about 820 vehicles. A subway station is in the vicinity.

Parking lot

Customers should pick up a parking ticket from a printing machine on the way into the lot. If customers do not pick up the ticket, they have to pay the full fare.
