Taoyuan International Airport three hours earlier than their departure time due to the seasonal increase in travelers, Taoyuan International Airport Corp (TIAC) said yesterday.

The company estimates that the number of travelers accessing the airport during the nine-day holiday would exceed 150,000 per day, while the total passenger volume would rise by about 6 percent compared with the holiday period last year.

The busiest day would be on Sunday next week, the last day of the holiday, when the airport is to accommodate 785 flights, it said.

Several Taiwanese airlines have announced that their counters would open early.
