Taipei, Dec. 6 (CNA) Aviation tests will be conducted for 10 days starting Monday at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport, and some flights will be affected during that time, the airport’s operator Taoyuan International Airport Corporation (TIAC) said Sunday.
Flight tests will be conducted between 6 a.m. and 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. daily from Dec. 7-11 and Dec. 14-18, while landings and take-offs will be suspended for one hour from 6:30- 7:30 a.m. on those days, TIAC said.
