Taipei, Jan. 2 — Taiwan’s transportation ministry has commissioned a feasibility study into whether
Songshan Airport in Taipei should be closed and its flights moved the country’s main international airport in Taoyuan.
The study is focused on “technical” issues, such as whether Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport should be categorized as a dedicated international airport or one that accommodates both international and domestic flights, and also the impact of expanding its services, the ministry said.
Commissioned by the Ministry of Transportation and Communications, the study is being carried out by the Civil Aeronautics Administration (CAA) and Taoyuan International Airport Corp. and is expected to be completed by the end of the year. [FULL STORY]
