Koreans hit roads, trains and planes as Chuseok holiday begins Updated: 2017-09-30 14:32:39 KST

Let's start with a look at the traffic situation on Korea's expressways on this first evening of the ten-day-long Chuseok holiday
Usually at this time on a regular holiday period, we'd be reporting on heavy congestion out of the capital to other major urban areas, but so far expressways are running relatively smoothly.
The Korea Expressway Corporation says the extended holiday period means traffic should be less congested than normal, but Tuesday through Thursday will be the busiest days on the roads as families head to and from their hometowns to see their relatives.
Bus and train stations are reporting a heavier volume of passengers, with many routes already sold out.
Korea's main gateway, Incheon International Airport, is packed with travelers flying out of the country.
An estimated 177-thousand passengers per day are expected to use the airport over the holiday.
There have also been delays in and out of Jeju International Airport after a runway was shut down following an incident involving a Jeju Air plane.
No one was hurt when the plane was forced to brake sharply during takeoff on Friday afternoon, but delays are still being reported.
