KORAIL train tickets for the Lunar New Year’s holidays will go on sale from January 11-13.

This year will once again be conducted 100% online or over the phone in order to prevent customers from lining up at station counters due to coronavirus concerns.

Tickets over six days — January 28 through February 2 — will be sold.

Here are how to order tickets this year:

January 11 — Only those over 65 and those with disabilities covered under the Disability Welfare Act can make reservations on the Let’s Korail website or app. Reservations begin at 9 a.m.

January 12 — Tickets are available for the general public beginning at 7 a.m. on the KTX, ITX-Saemaeul, and Mugunghwa. Tickets for the Gyeongbu, Gyeongjeon, Donghae, and Chungbuk lines are available.

January 13 – Tickets for the Honam, Jeolla, Gangneung, Janghang, and Jungang lines are taking reservations.

Paying for the Tickets

Tickets can be reserved up to 4 tickets per person one way and 8 tickets per person roundtrip and must be paid between 3 p.m. on January 13 to 12 p.m. on January 16th.

Unpaid tickets will go to the waiting list of applicants.

KORAIL will open a Lunar New Year Ticket Reservation web link in advance from 2 p.m. on January 7th with more details.
