Instead of going back to their hometowns to meet their families during the Lunar New Year holidays, many people went to Korea or abroad.
The airport, which had been crowded all day, was filled with the excitement of travelers ahead of their departure.
Reporter Ahn Dong-joon captured the airport scenery on the first day of the holiday.
Travelers with large luggage bags lined up in the departure hall.
The waiting time is long, but worth it if you are with your family.
This is the departure hall of the airport where travelers who are about to depart go through the procedures.
This Lunar New Year, citizens who chose to travel abroad instead of going back to their hometown visited this airport.
I’m still wearing a mask, but as it’s the first Lunar New Year holiday after social distancing is over, I feel relieved.
[허영훈 / 세종시 고운동 : 결혼하고 해외를 안 나가봐서 이번에 나가보려고 계획했어요. 사람이 이렇게 많은 줄 몰랐는데 너무 많아서…. 이제 코로나 좀 끝난 기분이 좀 나는 것 같아요.]
It is also fun to taste exotic foreign food instead of the usual New Year’s food.
[김 율 / 인천 부계동 : 저희 아버지가 초밥을 좋아하셔서 초밥 먹고 일본 음식들 먹으러…. 처음으로 가족끼리 명절에 해외여행을 가다 보니까 되게 많이 설레요.]
The children who are about to depart made unforgettable memories at the airport.
The child, holding the mother and father’s hands, looks around the airport they have never seen before, and takes a picture with rabbit dolls in celebration of the Year of the Rabbit.
[허윤재 / 경기 광명시 하안동 : 가서 좀 아이들이랑 재미있게 놀 수 있는 곳 찾아봤고요. 부산 명소랑 아이들 위주로 해서 놀 수 있는 거 놀다가 맛있는 것도 먹고 올 생각입니다.]
During the five days of the Lunar New Year holiday, 1.71 million travelers used 15 airports across the country.
In particular, it is expected that an average of 123,000 people will visit Incheon International Airport every day during the holiday season, which is more than 12 times that of last year, when distance was in full swing.
Holiday travel has now become a culture.
We started the first day of the Lunar New Year holidays full of anticipation and excitement.
