The Cheju airport code is CJU. Korean Air (KE) and Asiana Airlines (OZ) serves Cheju from Seoul's domestic airport (Gimpo (or Kimpo) International Airport or GMP), each with over 20 flights a day from around 07:00 until 21:45 (to CJU) and until 21:05 (to GMP).

Nonstop service from major international airports is minimal. For example:

from Seoul's (Incheon International Airport or ICN) [flight time: ~1:05]:
ICN to CJU Sat 21 Sept - -
ICN to CJU Sun 22 Sept KE1423 (17:30) OZ8551 (18:10)
ICN to CJU Mon 21 Sept - -
CJU to ICN Thu 26 Sept - -
CJU to ICN Fri 27 Sept KE1424 (19:15) OZ8552 (18:55)
[If you choose to fly via ICN, you may be interested in the ICN arriving and departing flight schedules.]

Ground transportation from GMP and ICN is by taxi and is said to take about 40 minutes. For landings at ICN, Korean Air specifies minimum transfer times: 100 minutes to transfer to a domestic flight at ICN, and a minimum of 150 minutes to transfer to a flight at GMP. Transfers in the opposite direction are 20-30 minutes shorter.

CJU is also linked by nonstops to Beijing (PEK), Tokyo (NRT), Osaka (KIX), and Busan/Pusan (PUS). For example:

from Beijing (PEK) [flight time: ~2:30]:
PEK to CJU Sat 21 Sept KE856 (08:45)
