Taoyuan airport flies past peers in passenger growth
Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport ranked No. 1 among 22 main airports worldwide on factors including cleanliness and employee friendliness
26 January 2015
Taipei Times Excerpt

Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport topped other benchmark airports in Asia last year by achieving double-digit growth in passenger volume thanks to an increase in international flights.

According to a report published by the Taoyuan International Airport Corp (TIAC), approximately 35.8 million visitors traveled to or transited at the airport last year, representing an 11.15 percent increase.

The airport company estimated that the number could hit 40 million this year.

The airports growth in passengers exceeded that of airports in other countries, including Incheon International Airport in South Korea (9.3 percent), Hong Kong International Airport (5.6 percent), Narita International Airport in Japan (1 percent) and Singapore Changi Airport (0.8 percent), the company said.

TIAC senior vice president Weng Yung-sung said that a factor contributing to the growth was that several airlines launched new flight services to a few cities in Asia last year, including Daegu and Muan in South Korea; Changchun, Yantai, Hefei and Wenzhou in China; and Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.

Emirates and VietJet Air began to offer services from Taiwan last year, while US-based United Airlines resumed direct flight service between Taipei and San Francisco, he said.

Weng said the nation also saw an increase in low-cost carriers, including Taiwan-based Tigerair and V Air, which helped boost passenger volume.

The airport saw a gain in the rankings from last year. Hong Kong took the top spot, while Shanghai Pudong came in third
Taipei Times with CNA
Excerpt
28 March 2015

The volume of cargo handled by Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport last year was the 10th-highest in the world, according to a report released by the Airports Council International on Thursday.

About 2.09 million tonnes of freight was loaded and unloaded at the Taoyuan airport last year, a 6.2 percent annual increase that pushed the airport up five notches in the global rankings, the report showed.

Hong Kong International Airport retained its top position from the previous year, with 4.42 million tonnes of cargo, an annual increase of 6 percent, the report showed.

It was followed by Memphis International Airport in Tennessee, the US, which recorded a cargo volume of 4.26 million tonnes, Shanghai Pudong International Airport with 3.18 million tonnes, South Koreas Incheon International Airport with 2.56 million tonnes and Anchorage Ted Stevens Airport in Alaska with 2.49 million tonnes.

Airport seeks ideas for third terminal
OVERLOADED? With passenger numbers estimated to hit 40 million this year, people traffic could exceed the capacities of the airport’s two terminals, an official said
Taipei Times Excerpt


Source : http://www.taoyuan-airport.com

Taoyuan International Airport Corp (TIAC) yesterday said it is seeking public input on designs for the airport’s third terminal, adding that the company would take the designs into consideration in discussions with its architectural team.

The new terminal forms a core feature of the Taoyuan Aerotropolis Project, and in terms of scale and funding would be the largest construction since the “10 Major Construction Projects” of the 1970s, TIAC senior vice president Wen Yung-sung (溫永松) said.

The project includes constructions of a third terminal, air bridges, a multifunctional building connecting Terminal Two and the new one, parking for aircraft, automatic people movers and access roads to the terminal.

The cost of the project is estimated to top NT$74 billion (US$2.36 billion), with about NT$48.8 billion to be spent on the planned terminal, he said.

The new terminal would be designed to accommodate 45 million passengers per year, Wen said.

Construction is scheduled to begin in the third quarter of 2017 and be completed by 2020, he said.

Unidentified flights aviation risk
The agency said that Japanese reluctance to share flight information might be due to overlap in areas, with Japan viewing flights as being in its domain
1 August 2015
Taipei Times Excerpt

Civilian airplanes flying through the Taipei flight information region (FIR) are exposed to greater aviation risks due to an increasing number of unidentified aircraft passing through the area over the past few years, according to a report published by the Civil Aeronautics Administration (CAA).

The report said that the number of unidentified aircraft increased because of Chinas creation of an air defense identification zone in the East China Sea. The establishment of the zone has also escalated tensions among East Asian nations, as it includes airspace over the Diaoyutai Islands, which are claimed by Taiwan and China, as well as Japan, where they are known as the Senkaku Islands.

CAA records showed that there have been a number of incidents in which the traffic collision avoidance systems of civilian aircraft were triggered due to the approach of unidentified aircraft. These incidents include an All Nippon Airways flight from Tokyo to Taipei, as well as Polar Air Cargo and Korean Air flights inside the Taipei FIR.

One EVA Airways flight also encountered an approaching unidentified aircraft when servicing its route between Taipei and Singapore, the CAA said, adding that the airplane was able to avert a disaster, because air traffic controllers reacted in time and guided the flight away from the unidentified aircraft.

The CAA expressed its frustration in the report over Japans reluctance to share information on unidentified flights coming from areas under Japans control.

Commenting on Japanese air traffic controllers unwillingness to disclose information, the CAA said that it might be because the US has several military installations in Japan, adding that because Japans air defense identification zone and the Taipei FIR overlap, the Japan Self-Defense Forces might feel it unnecessary to share information, as it would view flights in overlapping areas as being under its purview.

In contrast with Japan, the CAA said air traffic controllers in Hong Kong and the Philippines have provided information when requested.

Taipei Times Excerpt
Taoyuan to have fourth terminal
AIRPORT : Despite Terminal Three’s projected capacity of 45 million travelers per year by 2042, the airport is expected to see 86 million passengers yearly by that time

Taoyuan International Airport Corp is planning to build a smaller terminal prior to the construction of Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport’s Terminal Three to cope with a rapid increase in the number of passengers arriving in the nation.

The airport’s Terminal One and Terminal Two have a combined capacity of 32 million passengers per year. However, the airport’s passenger volume last year topped 35 million and is estimated to exceed 40 million this year.

Although there are already plans to build Terminal Three, construction is not expected to be completed until 2020. The company has also begun a project to expand the area of Terminal Two, which is scheduled to be completed in 2017.

While the Terminal Two expansion project is to increase the facility’s capacity by 5 million passengers per year, the firm said further expansions are needed, as it estimates that the number of passengers serviced by the airport is to grow at a pace of about 10 percent per year.

Minister of Transportation and Communications Chen Chien-yu (陳建宇) yesterday confirmed that a smaller Terminal Four is to be built first, adding that the airport had already briefed the Ministry of Transportation and Communications and the Executive Yuan about its preliminary plan and is ironing out the details of the project.

Airport volume up 10 percent over holidays: operator
Taipei Times Excerpt

People planning to spend the New Year holiday overseas are advised to arrive at the Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport at least one hour earlier than their scheduled check-in time today to avoid lineups at the immigration and luggage inspection areas.

Statistics from the Taoyuan International Airport Corp showed that 45 flights had been added to the flight schedule from Dec. 29 to Jan. 6.

Because of this, the airport estimates that passenger volume at the airport during this period would increase by 10 percent compared with the New Year holiday last year, with the number of passengers potentially topping 110,000 a day.

The airport said that 78 percent of New Year holiday travelers this year would board from Terminal 1, with most of them scheduled to travel on Wednesday and Sunday.

Rain wreaks havoc at Taoyuan airport
SERIOUS PROBLEMS : Traffic underpasses leading to the airport and parts of Terminal Two were flooded, while air traffic navigation facilities in Taipei were also interrupted






















China Times

Extremely heavy rainfall brought by a frontal system pummeled northern Taiwan yesterday morning, severely disrupting operations at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport and affecting more than 200 flights.

The Ministry of Transportation and Communications said that the thunderstorms, which lasted for more than two hours, as well as overflow from the Pusin River (埔心溪), had caused flooding at the two traffic underpasses leading to the airport terminals.

Because of the flooding in the underpasses, motorists traveling to and from the airport were asked to use Provincial Highway No. 4, rather than the usual route, Freeway No. 2.

Rainwater also leaked through the ceiling of Terminal Two and caused flooding in its underground food court.

Air navigation facilities on Datunshan (大屯山), in Taipei’s Beitou District (北投), which are used to guide air traffic into the airport, were also affected by the thunderstorms, forcing Air Navigation and Weather Services to activate a backup system in order to continue with air traffic control procedures.

By 1:30pm, 88 flights arriving at the airport and 131 departure flights had been affected by the weather, including two flights that were forced to land at airports in Kaohsiung and Taichung.

After pumping out the floodwater, the airport reopened its main access routes at 6:13pm.

Passengers were crowded in the lobby of Terminal Two last night due to a backlog of delayed flights and an incomplete resumption of the power supply inside the terminal.

In response to the worst flooding since the airport opened in 1979, Premier Lin Chuan (林全) ordered the ministry to identify the causes of the flooding, adding that it must also identify those who should be held accountable.
