Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport to be expanded
(Want China Times, July 20)

Quote:
A total of NT$300 billion (US$10 billion) will be spent on the renovation of Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport, the major airport serving Taipei, Taiwan's transportation minister, Mao Chi-kuo, said July 18.


"There will be a new terminal and a new runway at the airport. The construction will be completed by 2018," Mao said.


Mao made his remarks when he was visiting the construction site at the airport, where Terminal I is being renovated. He said that it has been a difficult project because the terminal has been under construction while it has been under operation at the same time.

Taiwan tallies cost of Typhoon Saola
KICKING UP A STORM:So far, the typhoon racked up a huge cost in agricultural damage, rendered most types of transport unusable and triggered deadly landslides
Taipei Times with agencies
Fri, Aug 03, 2012

Typhoon Saola pounded the nation with fierce winds and torrential rain yesterday, leaving five people dead, two missing and 16 injured.

According to information from the Central Emergency Operation Center, as of press time, one man in New Taipei City’s (新北市) Sansia Township (三峽) was buried in a mudslide, the 50-year-old director of New Taipei City’s Zuntou Police Station, Wang Ming-hsiang (王明祥), died of a heart attack while patroling landslide-prone areas; a motorcyclist was killed after he crashed into a toppled tree in Chiayi County; and a couple were buried by mudslides on their farm in Yilan, the center said.

In Taipei, more than 700 people living in old communities or hillsides were evacuated due to flooding and landslides that caused damage in Wenshan (文山), Beitou (北投) and Shilin (士林) districts.

Severe flooding was also reported in Yilan County, New Taipei City and Taoyuan County. Approximately 6,700 households in New Taipei City, Hsinchu, Nantou, Changhua and Yilan were left without water.

The Ministry of National Defense, which had ordered more than 45,000 soldiers to be on stand-by, mobilized amphibious vehicles to rescue residents trapped in chest-deep water in Yilan County. Television news footage showed residents in Yilan’s Wujie Township (五結) wading through the floodwater, which at one point rose to their chests.

The Central Emergency Operation Center estimated that more than 6,000 residents in 14 cities and counties were evacuated, 2,800 of whom stayed in temporary shelters. Electricity to more than 177,000 households nationwide was cut at one point.

Media reports also showed hectares of flooded farmland in low-lying coastal areas and scenes of overflowing rivers and roads blocked by mudslides in the nation’s mountainous center.

The transportation system was also disrupted by the stormy weather. The air bridge at the D10 boarding gate at Terminal Two of Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport was knocked down by gusts of wind. Nobody was injured in the incident. The D8 boarding gate was also damaged when the axle of supporting wheels under the air bridge broke.

The Civil Aeronautics Administration said 206 domestic flights and 103 international flights were either delayed or canceled because of the storm as of 5pm yesterday.


The Taiwan Railway Administration canceled all of its express train services on both the east coast and west coast routes, while the Taiwan High Speed Rail Corp adjusted its services as well.

Photographs taken from a rescue helicopter showed that landslides occurred in more than two dozen sections along the Suhua Highway, one of the main passages connecting eastern and western Taiwan.

Information from the Central Weather Bureau showed Saola made landfall at Hualien County at 3:20am yesterday. The storm twirled on the spot and veered off the coast again.

At around 2pm, Saola was downgraded from a typhoon to a tropical storm after its structure was partially altered by its contact with land. It then made landfall again at Sandiaojiao (三貂角). As of 7:30pm, the center of Saola was 60km north of Taipei, moving northwest at 16kph.

Bureau forecaster Hsieh Ming-chang (謝明昌) said that Taiwan proper could be out of the storm’s reach by noon today if Saola continues on the same course at the same speed.

“The rain could ease nationwide after the storm moves away today,” he added.

According to the bureau, Taipingshan (太平山) in Yilan County had the highest accumulated rainfall yesterday, topping 1,800mm.

The bureau also reported that a tropical depression lurking off the northern coast of Guam could potentially turn into a tropical storm.

Meanwhile, as of 4pm, agricultural losses had reached NT$218.54 million, the Council of Agriculture said.

The Ministry of Education reported an initial NT$650,000 in damage to schools, saying that schools in Yilan County had suffered the worst damage.

In anticipation of heavy wind and rain brought by the typhoon, classes and work were suspended everywhere yesterday except for Taitung County.

Several festivals around the nation were also postponed and forest parks closed due to the threat from Saola, with officials warning the public not to visit such places out of safety concerns.

The Taipei Children’s Arts Festival was closed yesterday, while the Yilan International Children’s Folklore and Folkgame Festival in Yilan County was scheduled to remain closed today.

A children’s arts festival in New Taipei City was also closed, along with the Songshan Cultural and Creative Park in Taipei.

Eighteen forest recreation and national parks, including Alishan (阿里山), Kenting (墾丁), Taipingshan (太平山) and Hehuanshan (合歡山) park were also closed yesterday.

The Forestry Bureau warned the public not to visit the parks or mountain trails and said the parks will only reopen after officials have inspected them and confirmed them to be safe after the typhoon has left.

Lightning bolt blamed for damage on airport runway

TAIPEI--A lightning strike may have damaged a runway at Taipei International Airport (Songshan Airport) on Saturday, airport authorities said, adding that the damage has since been repaired and flight departures and take-offs have resumed.

The airport's staff discovered a hole on the No. 10 runway, which was estimated to be 70 centimeters long and 50 cm wide, around 6 p.m., the airport said in a statement.

Those departures and take-offs scheduled to use the runway were suspended after the damage was discovered, according to the statement.

The runway was repaired around 8 p.m. of that day and flight departures and take-offs were resumed shortly after, the airport added.

The damage was estimated to have delayed five international and 20 domestic flights at the airport during the nearly two hours, the statement said.

The Civil Aeronautics Administration noted that lightning striking a runway is a rare occurrence.

@KLM.b777 -

T1's capacity is 12 million before renovation and will be increased to 15million after renovation.

T2's capacity is 17 million

T3 is under a tender process (completion date, between 2018 and 2020 depending on demand) and the capacity of this terminal will be 43 million.

The current master plan is that a 3rd runway will be constructed in conjunction with the construction of T3 and T1 and T2 will be rebuilt after T3 has been completed. Please see the Taiwan thread for more info

Airport plans are unveiled
Taipei Times

The Civil Aeronautics Administration (CAA) said on Friday it has proposed a plan to develop properties around Taipei International Airport (Songshan airport) saying it aims to turn the airport into another important gateway to the country.

CAA Director General Jean Shen said the plan still needs the final approval of the Executive Yuan. She said that the CAA would first develop the area for civil aviation-related industries which is the most profitable aspect of the entire development plan, after it is approved.

The CAA plans to develop an area of 5.3 hectares which covers the current CAA headquarters, China Airlines’ training base at the airport as well as the parking lot in front of Terminal One.

The agency said the area would be open for the construction of commercial buildings, hotels or trade show venues, adding that it welcomes investment from the private sector. The CAA further estimated that the investment needed to develop the area could cost between NT$20 billion and NT$40 billion (US$680 million to US$1.36billion). It also confirmed that several hoteliers and construction firms have inquired about the details of the plan.

Fan Hsiao-lun, CAA Aerodrome Engineering Division chief, said the agency is to explain the details of the plan to interested developers in a question-and-answer session after it is approved by the Executive Yuan. It would hear thoughts and ideas from the private sector first before launching any bidding process, he said.

Previously a domestic airport, Songshan became an international airport again after cross-strait flights as well as services to Tokyo, Shanghai and Kimpo in South Korea were launched. The CAA estimates the number of passengers at the transport hub could top 2.7 million this year.

Airport executives mull new terminal for low-cost flights
Taipei Times

Taoyuan International Airport Corp (TIAC) yesterday said it was considering turning the disused Grand Hotel building near the airport into a terminal for low-cost carriers.

According to the Civil Aeronautics Administration (CAA), 11 budget airlines already operate in Taiwan and two new ones — Singapore-based Scoot Airlines and Japan-based Peach Aviation — launched pilot flights last month and yesterday respectively.

At present, budget carriers account for about a 3 percent market share, lower than the Asia-Pacific region’s average, the CAA said.

TIAC president and CEO Samuel Lin (林鵬良) said that the business model for low-cost carriers — which increases the number of international passengers to Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport — differs from regular carriers.

While the airport has adequate capacity to accommodate both low-cost carriers and regular carriers at its two terminals, Lin said the airport was considering differentiating the two types of carriers by giving the low-cost airlines their own terminal.

Lin said that the disused Grand Hotel, which is right across the street from Terminal One, was once used to provide the catering service for international flights. However, the building has not been used since the hotel stopped providing catering services in 1998.

“We are considering revitalizing the asset by turning it into a terminal for low-cost carriers,” Lin said. “The terminal would only be equipped with basic facilities for the airlines to operate.”

Lin said the TIAC had received complaints that the lines for low-cost flights were so long they had affected passengers on other carriers.

It was later discovered that the carriers were cutting costs by only opening one or two check-in counters, he said.

The company has requested that these carriers maintain their quality of service, Lin said.
