Tight Transfer time at ICN. Any suggestions?

Hi,

I am flying from DEL-ICN (OZ-768) then ICN-NRT (OZ-106) with a connection time of 2 Hours. My issue is that the OZ-768 from DEL to ICN is generally late by about 1-1.5 Hours. It has been late for the last 15 days regularly. Will I be able to make my connection?

If I miss my connection flight, will the airline (Asiana) put me on the next flight, free of cost?

As long as your ticketed on on reservation, you’ll be fine. If it is a close connection, they usually have someone waiting at the plane door with your name on a sign to escort you.


You can also tell the flight attendants and they will let you sit up front just before landing to get off the plane quickly.

Also, at transit security, show them your itinerary/next flight boarding pass and they will let you cut the line.

If you do miss the flight, there’s one more to Tokyo in the evening. Longer layover sucks, but you can use the showers/nap area for free in the 4th Floor Rest & Relax area as a transit passenger. Also there is a Korean Cultural Experience exhibit where you can learn stuff and do some activities just to pass the time.

Hello, I arrive to ICN at 6:30am (in biz) and my next flight is at 7:45 on another ticket. I must take baggage. Is it possible to catch this flight?

Need more information. Does your incoming and ongoing airline offer interline baggage service? If not, you will have to enter Korea to claim your luggage and recheck in.

If you have to enter Korea - ABSOLUTELY not. Completely impossible. If your bags can go to final destination - and you can visit transfer desk for next flight boarding pass - NO. Because if you land at 6:30, you need to be checked in 1 hr before the flight - so you would NOT make it to get boarding pass in time.

If you can check bag to final destination AND do online check in/mobile boarding pass, then yes you'll be fine - PRESUMING NO DELAYS.

So the short simple answer - VERY VERY VERY RISKY.
