Mokpo Airport was an airport in Mokpo, South Korea (IATA: MPK, ICAO: RKJM). In 2006, 16,909 passengers utilized the airport.[1] This airport was closed when the nearby Muan International Airport opened in November 2007.

Overview

Mokpo Airport opened as a stopover between Seoul-Jeju in 1969 but closed in 1972. Twenty years later, Mokpo Airport opened again and several airplanes took off and landed. There were six daily flights to Seoul, two to Jeju, and one to Busan.

Problems associated with this airport include a narrow runway as well as frequent misty weather. Additionally, there were fewer customers after the opening of the Seohaean Expressway. These were among the reasons that the airport was closed in 2007.

Accidents and incidents

  • On 26 July 1993, an Asiana Airlines Flight 733 B737-500 (HL7229) struck high ground in poor weather about four kilometres from the runway in Mokpo while it was making its third attempt at landing. 2 of the 6 crew members and 66 of the 110 passengers were killed.
