Taoyuan International Airport - Terminal 3

Beyond a transportation centre, Terminal 3 is a green building, expected to become Taiwan’s new landmark as well as provide entertainment and leisure.

With an expected increase from 35 million passengers in 2014 to 60 million in 2030, Taoyuan International Airport Corporation (TIAC) is launching a €1.4 billion expansion scheme for Terminal 3.

We operate as general consultant for the Terminal 3 project and provide master planning and program management services, in a joint venture with Netherlands Airport Consultants B.V. (NACO) and T.Y. Lin International.

The Terminal 3 project is Taiwan’s most important construction project and also the flagship of the Taoyuan Aerotropolis Plan, which will include a new terminal building, concourses, multi-functional building, energy center, and aprons on the south, north, and west of the new terminal.

The Terminal 3 project involves the design and construction of a third terminal which will connect to Terminal 2. A ground transportation centre, car park and commercial real estate will be built between the two terminals. Also included is the development of the:
