SEOUL, Dec. 5 (Korea Bizwire) — Incheon International Airport Corp. announced on Tuesday that it plans to make improvements to facilities and services designed to help disabled persons, seniors, and pregnant women get around the airport.
The airport will first introduce vehicles to transport passengers to the departure and duty-free zones. The pick-up service will complete its trial period and begin full operations on December 10.
The airport will also offer automated stroller-rental kiosks to assist families with toddlers. Terminal 1 will go through renovations to have 10 playgrounds and 12 baby lounges by 2020.
