Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport will undergo a major reshuffling of flight schedules as they prepare for airport restorations that are scheduled to begin in October. The airports two runways are in need of serious reparations and each one will be closed for 10 months. The airport is the major gateway into Taiwan, so there is a need to overhaul the flight schedule to ensure that all traffic into and out of the country can operate with the least possible disruption.
The restoration is expected to cost NT$10.7 billion (US$354 million) and will take until 2015 to complete, with a pause in the restoration work for the Lunar New Year Holidays. Taoyuan International Airport Corp. (TIA) Senior Vice President Wen Yung-sung said that some flights will have to be taken off peak time slots and flights to Asian countries are more likely to be affected. Negotiations with airlines are still underway.
