Among Seoul station passengers, there are many passengers who turn off their carriers while moving between KTX, Airport Railroad, and Seoul subway station.


Yoo Jae-young, acting president of KORAIL, said, “I made a baggage handling system so that passengers with heavy luggage can easily transfer trains and subways.”

In the meantime, there were inconveniences to climb up and downstairs with heavy luggage in order to change trains and trains. In order to improve this, KORAIL introduced the first baggage conveying belt used at the airport to the railway in Korea.
