    Island Sim - Taiwan Taoyuan International

    Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport (IATA: TPE, ICAO: RCTP) formerly Chiang Kai-Shek International Airport, also known simply as Taoyuan Airport or C.K.S. Airport, is Taiwan's major international gateway located in Taoyuan County, about 40 km west of Taipei City, Taiwan.

    The airport is the main international hub for China Airlines and EVA Air. It is also home to TransAsia Airways, V Air and TigerAir Taiwan.

    In 2014, the airport handled a total of 35,804,465 passengers and 2,088,726,700 kg of freight making it the 11th busiest airport worldwide in terms of international passenger numbers and 5th busiest in terms of international freight traffic. The busiest international routes from Taoyuan Airport in 2014 were Hong Kong (6.9m), Tokyo (2.2m), Osaka (2m), Shanghai (1.7m) and Seoul (1.6m).

    There are currently 2 operative terminals in Taoyuan Airport. Terminal 1 has 18 gates and is divided in Concourse A and Concourse B. It was opened in 1979 and renovated in 2012. Terminal 2 was opened in 2000 and is divided in Concourse C or South, and Concourse D or North. Terminal 1 and 2 are connected by two people mover lines, connecting concourse A to D, and B to C. Both terminals are connected via Skytrain shuttle.

    The airport is currently near its maximum capacity and congested. Terminal 2 is under an expansion to increase the terminal capacity by 5 million passengers. The runways and jetbridges are being expanded in order to allow regular A380 flights. So far only one A380 jetbridge has been implemented at Gate 2C. There are some plans to build a new terminal, Terminal 3, at the airport which will see a projected increase of 45 million passengers by 2020.
