Going to Seoul on a domestic route is convenient due to the high number of flights available. Jeju, one of the prime vacation spots of South Korea, offers more than 117 direct flights to the capital, Seoul, every day. Almost all of them arrive at Gimpo International Airport. The airlines serving the route between Jeju to Seoul are: Jeju Air, Korean Air, Asiana Airlines, Eastar Jet, Jin Air, and T'Way Air. Asiana Airlines also ventures to Incheon International Airport, which allows you the convenience of choosing where to go, depending on your itinerary. Connecting flights also serve the route, offered by Korean Air, Asiana Airlines, and Korean Air, via Gwangju or Busan.
Departing from Jeju International Airport, you can check-in at the Departures area and then get your baggage on board at the airline you will be flying with. You will then venture to Customs where your documents will be checked. If approved, then you can turn to the security checkpoint. A search by X-ray, guards, and door detectors will perform body checks and inspect your belongings. After the processes, you can shop for some necessities and then eat some refreshments from the establishments at the terminal. The shops, restaurants, cafes, gift shops, food court, and other services are found on the second, third, and fourth floors of the terminal.
Flights to Gimpo International Airport from Jeju will arrive at the Domestic Terminal, where you will then go through baggage claim, security, and other procedures. You can then consider some transport options such as car rentals which can be arranged as soon as you finish with security checks. City buses 36, 37, 100, 200, 300, and 500 also pick up passengers and then turn to different parts of Seoul. Limousine buses numbered 600 can also take you to the Crown Plaza, Renaissance, Yeomiji Entrance, and various hotels such as the Hyatt, Shilla, Hana, and Lotte. Other parts of the city will be part of its route, making it a convenient choice for transportation.
Those turning to Incheon International Airport instead will most likely arrive through gates 1 to 50 of the second floor of the Passenger Terminal. Arranging your travelling documents and Customs Declaration Form will come next. If you are an unregistered foreigner, you will have to fill out your Arrival card. After going through Immigration, you can confirm the location of your baggage and take the escalator to the first floor. You can then file your Customs Declaration Form and then head to the Arrival Hall through Exits A to F.
Transport options can then be considered at the first floor of the Passenger Terminal. Buses mainly pick up passengers, as well as the shuttle buses which turn to designated points of the city of Incheon, Gyonggi, and Seoul. Taxis also take passengers, with some international taxis taking care of passengers speaking different languages.
When checking in at Jeju Airport for domestic flights, be sure to arrive at least an hour ahead to arrange for the check-in procedures. All documents coming with you must be valid, with your baggage free from restricted items that might make you take longer at Security. You should also make sure it complies with all the regulations on weight and size, so you do not have to get rid of excess baggage later on.
What to expect in Seoul
There is no time difference when between Jeju and Seoul. You will have to get used to the weather, however, as Jeju displays a subtropical/temperate oceanic climate with short and warm winters, compared to that in the mainland. Seoul, on the other hand, features a humid continental/subtropical climate with four distinct seasons. Temperatures extremes exist between summer and winter here, making it important that you bring appropriate seasonal clothing and other relevant accessories.
In terms of living costs, both cities have seemingly similar budget ranges, although in different areas. Restaurant meals are more expensive in Jeju, while utilities are cheaper there than in Seoul. Some food items are also priced higher in the island, while the rent is lower compared to the capital. Staying in Seoul needs a bigger budget, though, as it features a number of high-end amenities you may want to check out.
