The Taipei City government will discuss the issue of relocating Taipei Songshan Airport
after the completion of the Taoyuan International Airport MRT line, Taipei mayor Ko Wen-je said Thursday.
Besides the MRT system, another factor related to the possible relocation of Songshan Airport is the pace of construction of a third runway and terminal at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport, Ko said.
The new MRT line, which is expected to be completed in mid-July, will connect Taipei city directly with Taoyuan International Airport.
When the line is completed, air passengers will be able to check into their flights at Taipei Main Station, then travel to the airport in a time of only 35 minutes, Ko said during an inspection tour of the Taipei station, along with Taoyuan mayor Cheng Wen-tsan. [FULL STORY]
