Travel agents attending a recent dinner sponsored by the Korea Tourism Organization and Incheon International Airport were pleased to hear about the Free Transit Tours being offered to travellers.
The no-cost programs are designed for passengers who have just a few hours to spare in Korea while waiting for their connecting flights.
For instance, a two-hour tour would be suitable for a traveller who has at least four hours to wait for their connection through Incheon.
The programs are now being promoted through agent channels only, said the KTO, which co-hosted the dinner for Vancouver area travel agents and tour operators at the Marriott Vancouver Airport Hotel.
