The TIAC continues to pay heed to various disease prevention methods, ranging from the separation of arrival/departure traffic flows to disinfecting and sterilizing upon passenger boarding, which allows the airport to become a venue for entertainment and recreation.

The Taoyuan International Airport greeted the first wave of tourists for island circling flights today (6th) as 116 passengers boarded a Tigerair Taiwan flight departing at 10:20 AM. With the support of the Ministry of Transportation and Communications (MOTC) and the Civil Aeronautics Administration (CAA), and with the coordination and integration efforts of the Taoyuan International Airport Corporation (TIAC), all parties concerned, including the Aviation Police Bureau, the National Immigration Agency, the Taipei Customs, the Bureau of Animal and Plant Health Inspection and Quarantine, and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), collaborated to complete the first flight in the history of the pandemic that circled Taiwan and flew over Fukuoka, Japan. The flight was operated under the special flight number IT8240. Hsiang-Sheng Lin, President of the TIAC, was at the departure lounge to give his regards to the first batch of passengers. Waiting with Lin at the boarding gate, Chairman of Tigerair Taiwan Han-Ming Chen presented disease prevention kits to the passengers, wishing them a happy flight.

Hsiang-Sheng Lin, President of the TIAC, pointed out that, under the direction of the MOTC, the airport has not shut down due to border control measures. While limited by the pandemic, the TIAC continues to innovate and sustain itself. Aside from the fact that group visits to the airport by organizations and schools have carried on, the TIAC has also accommodated group visits by subordinate agencies under the MOTC, as well as environmental education groups and parent-child groups since late June. The TIAC partnered with the Taoyuan International Airport Industry Development Association to launch the “Time to Travel” campaign in July, and all available vacancies have been booked up to the end of August. Additional groups and sessions are currently under evaluation. “Quasi-international” flights circling Taiwan have been rolled out, and the TIAC strongly encourages Taiwanese carriers to develop related itineraries. Going forward, the TIAC will continue to coordinate with organizations pertaining to security inspections for customs clearance procedures, document inspection, and disease prevention and quarantine, thus enabling the Taiwanese people to enjoy a wide variety of services and facilities and go shopping at the airport, which will boost the morale of employees working at Taiwan’s main airport and invigorate its business activities and economy.

Since early July, the TIAC has invited various organizations from the Airport Service Major League to multiple coordination meetings for special island circling flights, in which it sorted out the operating method for micro vacations together with the CIQS and air carriers. TIAC also invited the CDC to help review itinerary arrangements to determine if they align with disease prevention requirements. The operating guidelines for the project were submitted to the MOTC for review immediately after their formulation and to the Central Epidemic Command Center for approval. Official letters were issued to air carriers in early August to inform them that they could apply for air traffic clearance with the CAA as per regulations.

The TIAC has spared no effort at the front end to push this project forward, and support at various levels of the back end have also been put in place, including separating outbound passengers from charter flight passengers at check-in and customs clearance, disinfecting and sterilizing upon passenger boarding, and implementing various detailed disease prevention measures, such as the separation of arrival traffic flows. The TIAC hopes that the Taiwanese people will help revitalize airports under the premise that safety and peace of mind are ensured, and while aviation safety is maintained, disease prevention being the priority throughout. Airports are no longer just for transportation, they are also a venue for entertainment and recreation. The airport can provide a new travel option for the Taiwanese people as they embark on a new way of life during this era of disease prevention, while offering the highest quality of service to passengers.
