While the 3D model is completed (thanks to @NemAir ) and maybe ready to release in 23.1, i think it’s time to promote this amazing airport, also my home airport to our community member.

This is my first time making airport guide!

Taoyuan International Airport (IATA: TPE, ICAO: RCTP ) is an international airport serving Taipei and northern Taiwan. Located about 40 km (25 mi) west of Taipei in Dayuan District, Taoyuan. The airport is Taiwan’s largest. It was also the busiest airport in Taiwan before the COVID-19 pandemic which began in 2020. It is operated by the Taoyuan International Airport Corporation. In 2016, it was ranked the best airport for its size in the Asia-Pacific region by Airports Council International.

The airport opened for commercial operations in 1979 as Chiang Kai-shek International Airport and was renamed in 2006. It is an important regional trans-shipment center, passenger hub, and gateway for destinations in Asia, and is one of two international airports that serve Taipei.
