Taoyuan International Airport Co scraps plans for LCCT

8-Mar-2013 4:51 PM

Taiwan’s Taoyuan International Airport Co, operator of Taipei Taoyuan International Airport, stated it has scrapped a proposal to construct a LCC terminal after observing the conditions in Singapore and Malaysia. According to a CNA report, the company first proposed converting an existing idle building at the airport into a LCCT last year. The company added it will use existing space at Taipei Taoyuan Airport’s T1 to accommodate LCCs if such needs arise in the future. The airport estimates LCCs will transport around one million passengers to Taiwan this year, up from the 930,000 LCC passengers in 2012.
