Inside South Korea's 'ghost' airport


If there was an award for the world's quietest international airports, Yangyang in South Korea would be a strong contender.

One of its newest terminals, which cost almost US$400m to build, has not seen a single passenger in more than six months.

Campaigners have dubbed it a "ghost airport" and claim it is far from an isolated example.

The BBC's John Sudworth went to visit it.
