Airport Facts:
Kaohsiung International Airport is a midsize commercial airport located in Kaohsiung City, Taiwan, Republic of China. It primary serves as a hub to countries in Southeastern Asia and as the backup to Chiang Kai-shek International Airport (TPE). Kaohsiung International Airport is the second largest airport in Taiwan.

Originally built by the Japanese, "Kaohsiung Airport" was first utilized as an Air Force base when control of Taiwan was returned to the ROC government. Due to the need of a civilian airport in southern Taiwan, it was converted and expanded as a domestic airport in 1965. In 1969, it was further upgraded as "Kaohsiung International Airport," but it wasn't until 1972 that it started transporting international passengers. For a brief period in 2000, Eva Airways opened a direct flight from Kaohsiung to Los Angeles, but it was soon stopped due to low ridership. Presently, passengers travel to Europe, Australia, North America, or Northeastern Asia are served by dedicate connecting flights to Chiang Kai-shek International Airport, where most international flights are available. The airport is located in Hsiaogang District in Southern Kaoksiung City and thus also known as Hsiaogang Airport or Kaohsiung Hsiaogang Airport.

Terminals
Kaohsiung International Airport has two terminals: one domestic and one international.

The domestic terminal is built in 1965 when the airport was first opened as a civilian airport. Through the years, it has undergone numerous small expansions and improvements, but jet bridges were never added. For the most part this is acceptable since the domestic terminal mostly served smaller planes that jet bridges cannot be used. The current domestic terminal building also served international flights before the opening of the new international terminal in 1997.
