A guide of Taipei Taoyuan International Airport
Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport is an international airport serving the capital of Taipei, and the northern parts
of the island. It is located about 40 km west of Taipei. , the airport is Taiwan's largest airport.

In 2012, the renovation project of the terminal was completed, doubling the floor area, expanding check-in counters,
increasing shopping areas and expanding car-parking facilities. Part of the project was the complete redesigning of both
the exterior and interior of the terminal. Overcrowding of the airport in recent years prompted the construction of Terminal 2,
which was opened on July 29, 2000. The airport has announced construction plans for Terminals 3. Over 2.3 billion US Dollars
will be poured into the project, among the most costly constructions in modern Taiwanese history. The terminal is expected
to be opened in 2020 and accommodated 45 million passengers per annum.

The airport was built in 1936 during Nipponese rule with its origins as a Japanese military airbase, the Taihoku Airfield,
also known as Matsuyama Airport. Taipei Songshan Airport is a mid-size commercial airport. It is also used for an army base
in Songshan, Taipei. The civilian section of Songshan Airport, officially Taipei International Airport has scheduled flights
serving domestically in Taiwan, and also to China, South Korea and Japan, with the vast majority of international flights
out of the Taipei area served by Taoyuan International Airport.

traffic treaty. JAL, ANA, Eva Airways ( Taiwan ) and China Airlines are now operating from Songshan Airport to Tokyo
International Airport ( Haneda ). Because it is in an urban area, there is a problem of noise and safety, the integration
of transfer to Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport has been considered due to the decrease of domestic users
due to opening of Taiwan high-speed railway, improvement of airport access by opening of Taoyuan station.
