Flying in Taiwan: domestic and international flights

  • Airlines operating in Taiwan


  • Flying domestically


  • How to get from the airport to Taipei

Given Taiwan’s extensive public transportation systems (HSR, trains, busses) that connect the country, planes often take a backseat in domestic travel plans. If you’re flying to the outer islands or internationally, see below for some helpful information on flights!


The biggest and most popular international airport in Taiwan is Taoyuan International Airport (TIA), located approx. 40 mins outside Taipei. Most flights from the US and other western countries will fly into TIA and there are multiple transportation options from the airport to the capital city depending on your arrival time and budget. There are also 3 more international airports: Kaohsiung International Airport in the south, Taichung International Airport in the middle of the country, and Taipei Songshan Airport in the north. Taiwan’s main international airline carriers are China Airlines and EVA Air, both relatively similar these days for economy and budget travellers.


There are 16 domestic airports in Taiwan, located in most major cities and every outlying island. Domestic / Regional airlines include Daily Air, Mandarin Airlines, Uni Air, Tigerair Taiwan, and Starlux Airlines. Mandarin Air and Uni Air offer regional flights to other countries in Southeast Asia, in addition to domestic flights within Taiwan. The only reason to fly domestically in Taiwan is if you’re travelling to one of the islands surrounding the country, such as Green Island, Orchid Island, Penghu or Kinmen.  Uni Air is very popular to Penghu and islands west of the island, while Daily Air takes passengers from Taitung to Orchid Island. These flights to the outer islands can be cancelled easily due to bad weather, so check your flight status before heading to the airport.

NOTE: Ferries are also available as a transportation choice between the main island of Taiwan and it’s outlying islands and might seem fun or like a good idea in bad weather, but please be warned: seas can be very rough, especially in the straight to the west, and complimentary throw up bags are provided for a reason. The only bad experience I’ve had in Taiwan in 1 ½ years was on a ferry. Take the plane.

How to buy flight tickets

Just like most other places, you can buy flights online through the big websites like GoogleFlights, Kayak, etc., directly from the airline if you know which one you want to take, or by stopping by any local travel agents like EZ Travel or Lion Air. These shops are located throughout most major cities in Taiwan. If your Chinese is good or you feel like testing your Google Translate abilities, you can also purchase plane tickets through the ibon machines at 7-11!
