Abstract Due to the geographical and topographical features that Jeju has as an island, it is located on the path of typhoons, and as a result, travelers may be isolated in the event of a natural disaster. In this regard, this study aims to make suggestions to supplement the manual for stranded passengers in the airport in the event of a natural disaster, and to provide planning data in order to create a safe and comfortable environment for them. The research method was literature research. The results of the study are as follows. First, following the heavy snowfall in 2016, the response manual for stranded passengers, in connection and collaboration with Jeju International Airport, the Jeju Special Self-Governing Province, and the Jeju Regional Aviation Administration, have been overhauled, and many improvements have been made to the manual. However, there is still room for improvement in the details of how to assist stranded passengers, specific response time for each alert level, and the execution of response drills. Second, legal grounds to protect and support stranded passengers are required. Third, the airport passenger terminal not only transports passengers and cargo, but it also serves as an emergency shelter. As such, in order to protect stranded passengers safely and provide a pleasant environment for them, it is required to take into account different types of disasters caused by climate change, and consequently to take into consideration ways to secure places for stranded passengers to stay and any necessary circulation network, accordingly.
