Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport (桃園國際機場) (TPE). Formerly called Chiang Kai-shek International Airport (中正國際機場) in honor of the late dictator, this airport is Taiwan's main international gateway. Almost all long-haul flights arrive here. The two terminals are linked by free mini-train. Located 40km from Taipei, it's linked by frequent buses to major cities including the capital, Zhongli, Taoyuan and Taichung. A regular bus service (NT$30 one-way) connects the airport with Taoyuan HSR Station. Taxis to downtown Taipei cost around NT$1,200.

Songshan Airport (松山機場) (TSA) Located in downtown Taipei, Songshan serves mostly domestic flights, plus limited daily charter flights to mainland China. Flights to Tokyo's Haneda airport have commenced recently.

Kaohsiung Airport (高雄) (KHH) Domestic and international airports are located in the same complex; international departures are only to other Asian cities, as well as charter flights to mainland China. Taxis to downtown hotels cost no more than NT$250; the city's KMRT rapid-transit rail system links the airport with the HSR and TRA railway stations.

Taichung Airport (台中機場) (RMQ) Serving domestic flights as well as international flights to Hong Kong and Vietnam, and cross-strait charters to mainland China.

Hualien Airport (花蓮機場) (HUN) Serving domestic flights as well as some international charter flights to Japan, South Korea and Macau. It is also one of the airports designated to serve cross-strait direct flights.

The airports at Magong (馬公), Taitung (台東) and Kinmen (金門) have also been designated for cross-strait flights to China, though of these, only Makung currently has regular flights to the mainland. Regular cross-Strait flights between Taiwan and China restarted in 2008 after a break of 60 years; the frequency of these flights has been steadily increasing, yet flying via Hong Kong or Macau is sometimes less expensive than flying direct.
