Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, all regular services and hours may be subject to change. Thus, if the idea is to spend the night in the public area, consider a plan B in case the stay inside the airport is only allowed for those who are close to boarding.
Spending the night at the airport
Incheon airport operates with many flights and connections around the globe, and therefore movement is constant, even during the night. Besides being a spacious place with modern facilities, there are many interesting activities you can engage in while you wait for your flight.
Where to rest: It is best to stay close to the boarding area. Here the lights are dimmer and you can find numerous comfortable seats, including reclinable couches and massage chairs. On the third and fourth floor, especially, there are relax areas which are ideal for a rest. In both terminals there are also VIP lounges if you have a bigger budget, but keep in mind that none of them are open during the night.
