Korea Airport Corp. (KAC) recently announced a deal with Avjet to build and manage an FBO at Seoul’s Gimpo Airport, close to the city center, with the aim of making it the country’s main business aviation hub. The main airport, Incheon, is some 30 miles from the city center.
Sikorsky Aerospace Services has opened a regional parts stocking facility with Times Aerospace Korea at Gimpo Aerospace Industrial Complex in Gimpo City, Gyongg-Do, South Korea.
Times Aerospace Korea built the complex near Incheon and Gimpo International Airports with the purpose of providing service and support facilities for the Asian aerospace industry.
Gimpo Airport, formerly known as Kimpo Airport, located near downtown Seoul, South Korea, reopened last month to international business aircraft operations. The airport had been open to domestic flights only since Inchon International Airport, 32 miles from downtown Seoul, opened in March 2001. Gimpo operating hours are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. The customs and immigration clearance office operates between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.
