Incheon Airport set to approve luxury resortIncheon International Airport, which operates the nation’s busiest gateway, is close to approving plans for a $3 billion resort to lure more Chinese tourists.
A U.S. company has proposed building the development, which will include a hotel and convention center, Lee Chae-wook, chief executive officer of the state-owned airport company, said yesterday.
A deal will probably be signed by the end of June, with construction starting next year, he said, without naming the investor.
“We want to build a landmark near the airport that will resemble Singapore’s Marina Bay Sands,” Lee said. “The investment will help attract more visitors from China and create more jobs.”
