Taiwan Kaohsiung International Airport (KHH)
History, Facts and Overview
Previously used as a military field by the Air Force, Kaohsiung International Airport came into being in 1965, when the airfield was transformed into a regional domestic airport, serving the southerly region of Taiwan. A terminal building was constructed at this stage and further improvements were made several years later, and the airport began offering a number of popular international flights in the early 1970s.
A major turning point in the history of Taiwan Kaohsiung International Airport (KHH) took place in the mid-1990s, when a new international terminal was planned and built, meeting the airports current needs and allowing for future growth projections. Complete with modern jet bridges, the terminal is large, spacious and flooded with natural light.
A number of ATMs can be found in both terminals at Kaohsiung International Airport, while banking and bureau de change facilities are provided at counters in the international terminal.
Restaurants offering Chinese and Western style cuisine are on hand in the terminals, as are shopping outlets. Duty-free shops are restricted to the international terminal. For business needs, Taiwan's Ambassador Hotel is conveniently situated close by, along Min Shen 2nd Road.
