Project Background

The Existing Taoyuan International Airport ATC Tower

Taoyuan International ATC Tower with 46m height has been operated for over than 30 years since its opening in 1979. The airport daily flights are now increased about 7 times than the origin services, and by the end of 2017, the average of daily flights reached more than 670. Due to the existing space was not sufficient to fulfill the equipment expansion requirement, in order to meet the air traffic growth, to enhance air traffic service efficiency, this project was developed to build a new ATC Tower that can support the international airport with high traffic services, and can sustain the annual services around 340,000-400,000 flights in the next 20 years. The design of ATC Tower will be a national gateway landmark and embellish the overall airport landscape.
