Taiwan moves up schedule for 3rd runway at Taoyuan Airport
Excerpt


Source : http://www.terminal3.com.tw/

Taipei, June 11 (CNA) The Ministry of Transportation and Communications is aiming to complete the third runway at the Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport by 2025, five years ahead of schedule, Vice Premier Lin Hsi-yao said Saturday.

Lin said the transportation ministry has moved up the completion date from 2030 in an effort to meet growing air transportation demand.

Meanwhile, the long-delayed MRT line between the Taoyuan airport and Taipei hopefully will be opened by the end of the year, Lin said, after President Tsai Ing-wen met at her residence with some Cabinet members to discuss issues related to transportation and public construction projects.

Transportation Minister Ho Chen Tan spent a lot of time explaining to the president the progress of the construction work on a third terminal at the Taoyuan airport and the plan for a third runway.

According to the Civil Aeronautics Administration, the key to completing the third runway ahead of schedule lies in land acquisition.

Look at the registration, below the window line, on the right of the rear door - it says "B-16306" which is actually a registration belonging to EVA Airways, at home at TPE.
A quick web search showed that EVA hadn't used this (leased) plane since Feb. 2016. So this shot is probably the delivery flight to Argentina and its new operator, who will register it on the Argentinian civil aircraft registry (as "LV-GKO" if the online source is correct).
Which makes it a very rare photo!

Airport competiton: Taoyuan airport well-positioned to fend off rivals
31 July 2016
Central News Agency Excerpt

After a spate of embarrassing incidents at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport in June, including serious flooding and a power outage following heavy rains, Taichung saw an opportunity crack open.

Mayor Lin Chia-lung appealed to the central government to upgrade the Taichung airport into an international airport to diversify aviation risks and balance regional development, and he was promised that the idea would be evaluated.

After Lin made his gambit, Kaohsiung, with Taiwan's second largest airport, did not want to be left behind and also pushed to have flights from the Taoyuan airport diverted its way.

As Taiwan's main international gateway backed by a big population base, however, the Taoyuan airport's dominant position may be hard to shake by other airports no matter how much they want of piece of its aviation pie.

As the head of a travel agency said, if other cities want to snatch passengers away from Taoyuan, they better have a comprehensive plan.

The Taoyuan airport naturally serves nearly 45 percent of the country's population residing in or north of the Hsinchu area, and trying to change the travel habits of passengers to use airports further south would be a challenge, the travel insider said.

"Passengers will not choose a faraway airport for departure or arrival and will avoid unnecessary travel time," he said.

Dai Dzwo-min, a professor with National Cheng Kung University's Department of Transportation and Communication Management Science, said "economic scale" is the critical consideration in the development of an airport and an obstacle in the other cities' quests.

Kaohsiung Airport, for example, mainly caters to regional flights to Hong Kong or Southeast Asian countries, and if the market cannot support daily or highly frequent long-haul flights on a regular basis from there, airlines won't go, Dai said, making any ambitious expansion difficult.

The country also has to consider how it "positions its airports" and address such questions as whether the country needs more than one major international airport such as the Taoyuan airport and what roles other airports might play, Dai says.

Another factor in the Taoyuan airport's favor, Dai says, is the explosion of budget airlines operating in Taiwan, which has now risen to 20 since Jetstar first began service here in 2004.

Many of them operate flights at odd hours, and it may be easier for them to establish a base at Taoyuan International Airport, which is open around the clock, than other local airports that impose curfews late at night and into the early hours of the morning, she said.

If the Taoyuan airport does have an Achilles heel, it's the airport's ground transportation network, which can be inconvenient. But it still is close to Taiwan's high-speed rail, and an MRT system connecting greater Taipei to the airport is expected to come on line later this year.

After that improvement, the ground transportation network will rank far above the infrastructure available in Taichung or Kaohsiung, again giving it a big edge over its more regional rivals.

Traffic statistics illuminate how dominant a role the Taoyuan airport is in Taiwan. It handled nearly 80 percent of all international passengers at the country's airports in 2015 and about 95 percent of the country's international air cargo.

That "cluster" effect is important in attracting airlines and peripheral aviation businesses, and few companies will be willing to gravitate toward an airport unless its facilities and eco-system are complete, the travel agent argued.

Based on such considerations, Taichung and Kaohsiung may have a difficult time taking business away from the Taoyuan airport, even if the government tries to help them, he said.

Taoyuan International Airport is now taking steps to ensure that it remains the dominant gateway in Taiwan's travel sector.

It will start work on a third terminal next year that is expected to be completed at the end of 2020 and increase its capacity appreciably and is already undertaking projects to ease congestion at Terminal 2. Planning on developing an "airport city" is also ongoing.

Airport MRT to launch early next year: ministry
OUTSOURCING : Taoyuan Metro Corp is entrusting UK-based Ricardo Rail with the task of conducting an independent verification and validation of the system
Taipei Times Excerpt

The Taoyuan International Airport MRT System is scheduled to become operational in February or March, the Ministry of Transportation and Communications said yesterday.

Deputy Minister of Transportation and Communications Wang Kwo-tsai (王國材) said that the system has been scoring 99 percent in reliability tests for nearly one month after the ministry assembled a team of 12 experts to prepare the system for its launch.

However, although the situation has improved, the system is still failing one requirement, that train delays exceeding five minutes not occur twice or more in one week, Wang said.

Wang also said that Taoyuan Metro Corp, the designated operator of the system, has nearly finished drills for 108 possible scenarios that it could encounter during operations.

The company is entrusting UK-based Ricardo Rail with the task of conducting an independent verification and validation of the airport rail system, Wang said, adding that it can then ask the Bureau of High Speed Rail and the Taoyuan City Government to conduct a preliminary inspection of the system.

Passengers at Taoyuan Airport expected to hit 42 million in 2016
2016/12/20 19:08:25

Taipei, Dec. 20 (CNA) Passengers handled by the Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport so far this year had reached 40 million as of Dec. 13, airport authorities said Tuesday, adding that they expect the number to hit 42 million by the end of this year.

Breaking the 40 million threshold also means that the airport now falls into the same category in terms of size along with airports including Changi Airport in Singapore, Hong Kong International Airport, and Incheon International Airport in South Korea.

This, in turn, means that the country's main gateway will now have to compete with them in evaluations conducted by organizations such as the Airports Council International, the airport authorities said.

It is the fifth consecutive year in which the airport has recorded growth in passenger numbers.

MOTC study to decide fate of Songshan airport
SHUTDOWN? The study is to focus on whether Taoyuan airport would be able to accommodate all flights that would have to be moved from the airport in Taipei
Taipei Times with CNA Excerpt


TransAsia Airways Airbus A321-200(SL) B-22616 by Manuel Negrerie, on Flickr

The Ministry of Transportation and Communications (MOTC) has commissioned a feasibility study on whether Taipei International Airport (Songshan airport) should be closed and its flights moved to the nation’s main international gateway in Taoyuan.

The study is focused on “technical” issues — such as whether Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport should be categorized as a dedicated international airport or one that accommodates both international and domestic flights — and the impact of expanding its services, the ministry said.

The study is being carried out by the Civil Aeronautics Administration (CAA) and Taoyuan International Airport Corp, and is expected to be completed by the end of the year, it added.

The ministry said it would also examine whether the Taoyuan airport would be able to handle the additional flights if Songshan airport is closed.

The Taoyuan airport handles about 50 international and regional flights per hour, while Songshan airport handles fewer than 20 per hour, some of which are regional flights.

Since the 2015 crash of a passenger plane in Taipei’s Nangang District (南港) shortly after takeoff from Songshan airport, there have been calls for the airport’s closure amid safety concerns.

When the plane plunged into the Keelung River (基隆河) in Taipei, 43 of the 58 people on board were killed and 15 were injured. Two people in a taxi that was clipped by the wing of the falling plane were also injured.

Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je (柯文哲) is one of the people who have been calling for the closure of Songshan airport and the relocation of its services to the airport in Taoyuan. The city government has said it plans to turn the land into a park.

The urban renewal argument has been supported by Feng Cheng-min (馮正民), a professor in the Department of Transportation and Logistics Management at National Chiao Tung University, while saying that it would take more time for Taipei residents to get to an airport.

He added that the third runway at the Taoyuan airport would have to be completed before the operations of Songshan airport could be relocated there.

The Taoyuan airport runway is expected to be completed by the end of 2025, five years ahead of schedule, while a new airport MRT line between Taipei and Taoyuan is likely to begin operations in the next few weeks, offering faster travel between the nation’s capital and its main gateway.

However, even with those facilities in place, there would still be the challenges of managing air traffic at the busy Taoyuan airport if it has to handle both jetliners and turboprop aircraft, senior air traffic control officers said.

The Taoyuan airport handles only jetliners, while Songshan airport accommodates some turboprop aircraft, they said.

When are they going to built the new terminal? Taiwan's airport terminal is so dated and small. They really need to renovate the other terminal and its exterior as well.

Actually, Taoyuan T1 has been nicely renovated and there is also a new terminal at Songshan as well.

Taoyuan airport aims to complete runway by 2025
EXPANSION : The Ministry of Transportation and Communications moved up the completion date by five years to meet growing air transportation demand

The Taoyuan International Airport Corp has started an environmental impact assessment on a third runway project, and hopes that work on the runway will be completed by 2025, the company said yesterday.

The Ministry of Transportation and Communications last year moved up the completion date of the third runway from 2030 to 2025 in an effort to meet growing air transportation demands.

The environmental impact assessment (EIA) process has also been activated ahead of schedule, the company said.

The process will take about 30 months to complete, it added.

The third runway, measuring 4,000m, is to be on the north side of the airport and is to run parallel to the airport’s other two runways.

It is to be longer than both the 3,600m south runway and the 3,800m north runway, the company said.

The airport’s annual traffic topped 40 million passengers on Dec. 13 last year for the first time in the facility’s 37-year history.

However, the airport’s two terminals have a combined capacity of only 32 million passengers per year, prompting the company to require construction of an additional smaller terminal before the completion of terminal expansion and construction projects to cope with the rapid increase in traffic volume.

The company has begun a project to expand Terminal Two, which is scheduled to be completed in 2020 and start operations in 2021.

Construction on a third terminal has also started, but it is not expected to be completed until 2020.

Ko seeks aid with Songshan airport move after ride on MRT
Taipei Times Excerpt

The launch of the Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) line will likely affect passenger volumes at Taipei International Airport (Songshan airport), Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je (柯文哲) said after a ride on the new line yesterday, calling on the Executive Yuan to help streamline efforts by Taipei and Taoyuan to relocate the Songshan facility.

Ko and Taoyuan Mayor Cheng Wen-tsan (鄭文燦) rode the MRT line, which opened this month on a trial basis.

Ko praised the “excellent” construction quality of the line, saying that the ride was “smooth and comfortable.”

He was equally complimentary of outlets in the carriages for passengers to charge mobile devices, as well as free Wi-Fi connectivity, saying that he had instructed Taipei Rapid Transit Corp to offer free Wi-Fi services in Taipei MRT carriages by the end of the year.

The launch of the airport MRT provided an outlook on Songshan airport’s future, Ko said.

Ko said that he and Cheng would ask the Executive Yuan to streamline efforts by the two municipalities to relocate Songshan airport, as the highest level of collaboration is required to complete the task.

Ko’s administration has proposed a plan to merge Songshan airport with Taoyuan airport by 2020, with a central park planned to be built at the Songshan site.

Taoyuan airport’s third terminal, of which construction is to begin next month, and a planned fourth terminal should be able to process the passenger volume from Songshan airport, the Ko administration said.

TIAC to step up measures against illegal taxi drivers
HARSH PUNISHMENT : The Administrative Enforcement Agency said it has targeted repeat offenders, restricting them from leaving the nation and seizing their assets
Taipei Times Excerpt

Taoyuan International Airport Corp (TIAC) yesterday said that it would step up a crackdown on illegal taxi drivers soliciting customers at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport, with such drivers facing fines of up to NT$90,000.

The airport operator issued a statement following a meeting with several government agencies, including the Administrative Enforcement Agency, the Civil Aeronautics Administration, the Aviation Police Bureau, the Taoyuan Police Department’s Dayuan Precinct and the Directorate-General of Highways.

The issue came under scrutiny after National Taiwan University professor Jason Chang (張學孔) posted on Facebook photographs of illegal taxi drivers soliciting travelers inside the airport’s terminals and disrupting traffic outside the facility.

When asked about the problem at the Legislative Yuan in Taipei earlier this week, Minister of Transportation and Communications Hochen Tan (賀陳旦) promised lawmakers that the airport operators would handle the issue this week.

Administrative Enforcement Agency officials and the Aviation Police Bureau launched a crackdown at the airport on Wednesday night, catching three illegal taxi drivers, and seizing their cars and illegal gains.

Construction begins on new terminal at Taoyuan International Airport
2017/05/26 14:36:27

Taipei, May 26 (CNA) The first two phases of work on building a third terminal at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport got off the ground Friday, with the entire project scheduled to be completed in 2020, the airport company said.

The work that began Friday involved the foundation as well as aprons, taxiways and facilities of the new terminal, Taoyuan Airport Corp. (TAC) said.

According to TAC Chairman Tseng Dar-jen (曾大仁), the project is divided into 13 parts, and the other 11 parts will be contracted out soon.

All construction work is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2020, paving the way for operations to begin in mid-2021, Tseng said.

The new terminal is designed to serve up to 45 million passengers per year, more than the combined 32 million capacity of terminals 1 and 2 of Taiwan's main gateway, he said.

According to TAC, more than 40 million passengers passed through the airport in 2016, and that the figure will likely increase as the number of visitors from Southeast and Northeast Asia continues to surge.

Terminal 3 is being built to meet growing demand and relieve congestion in the other two terminals, which opened in 1979 and 2000 respectively, it said.

Airport tests color-coded baggage system
Taipei Times Excerpt

Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport has launched a trial run of a color-coded baggage management system to improve ground crew efficiency in delivering luggage to arriving passengers, with plans to launch the full system in the second quarter of next year.

The system scans bar codes on luggage and groups bags from the same airplane under a corresponding color that airline companies will choose themselves, the airport said.

The luggage are then transferred onto a conveyor belt and LEDs placed along the carousel light up in the corresponding color, the airport said, adding that it spent NT$5 million (US$165,415) for the test system.

Compared with the traditional method in which ground crew manually check luggage tags and place the bags on conveyor belts, the system will hopefully expedite the sorting process, as ground crew will be able to recognize flights by their color, the airport said.

Currently, ground crew can sort luggage coming from up to three airplanes, it said.

The new system can sort luggage coming from up to six airplanes at a time, the airport said.

The system can process luggage during peak hours at a considerable speed, the airport said.

Peak arrival time at Terminal 2 is between 6am and 9am, and comprises 40 percent of daily baggage handling, the airport said, adding that every luggage carousel services two to three airplanes during the period.

The system has been installed on a carousel in Terminal 2 for a trial run, the airport said, adding that a entire system for the entire airport, including the lights, would cost NT$100 million.
