South Korea's largest airport could host an international museum as early as 2024.

According to local media, the Incheon International Airport Corp (IIAC) – which operates the Incheon Airport – is launching a feasibility study into how best to accommodate a satellite site for a recognised museum "brand" at the site, such as Louvre or Guggenheim.

Speaking to local newspaper, The Korea Herald , an official from IIAC said the company was looking at two options for hosting the attraction.

The plan is for either a large, landmark complex at Incheon's Terminal 1, or a smaller site in Terminal 2.

It will be the second museum at Incheon airport – it already hosts the Museum of Korean Culture.

The museum plans are part of the IIAC's vision to develop Incheon into the world's best airport and a "global mega-hub".

Its development strategy includes three core points – to "Connect Lives, Connect Cultures and Connect the Future".

Incheon is already one of the largest and busiest airports in the world. In 2019, it served more than 71 million passengers.

In addition to the terminals, the airport facilities include a golf course, spa, private sleeping rooms, an ice skating rink, a casino, indoor gardens and a video game centre.
