Daegu International Airport,
A Gateway to the World
Recently, my husband and I visited Jeju Island. Since we live near Daegu, we decided to take the plane from Daegu International Airport. Daegu International Airport is located about 3 kilometers from Dongdaegu Station. It is about 13 kilometers away from our place in Gyeongsan. Going there is very convenient because one can easily get there by bus, taxi or even subway.
The closest subway station to Daegu International Airport is Ayanggyo Station which is about 1.9 kilometers away. People who use the subway often get off at Ayanggyo and transfer to bus #101-1 or Palgong 1. The bus stop is located at Ayanggyo Exit 2.
Heading Out of Daegu
The Check-in Counters are located on the ground floor while the boarding gates are located on the second floor.
On the second floor, there are coffee shops and restaurants where you can have something to eat or drink while waiting for the boarding gate to open. There are some souvenir shops too.
Coming to Daegu
If you are coming to Daegu via Daegu International Airport, you can claim your baggage on the ground floor baggage claim. To the left, there is a door leading to the Check-in area. If you are planning to rent a car there or getting a USIM, there are booths for these types of services right across from the Check-in Counters. Those booths are not hard to find because Daegu International Airport is not that big.
Transportation from Daegu International Airport
The most Convenient mode of transportation fron the airport is taxi. Especially if it is your first time in the city and you still do not know your way. But if you are the adventurous type, taking the bus and the subway is perfectly fine as long as you know your destination.
In order to get to the Taxi stop and the bus stop, you will need to head out through Exit 3. From Exit 3, you will see the Taxi Stop or even the Bus Stop.
If you are heading towards Palgongsan, you do not need to cross the street to get on the bus. But if you are heading downtown or to Gyeongsan, you must cross the street first and turn left.
