"super convenient for visitors to Taipei"

(United States)

I arrived here from Tokyo Haneda. Two other flights arrived at the same time, so there was a queue at immigration, which took 15 minutes. My baggage was waiting for me at baggage claim. Although older and smaller than TPE, this airport is super convenient for visitors to Taipei. Fewer passengers, decent shopping, very close to downtown and served by a metro line. I flew out of Songshan to HND once before and was surprised at how easy it was to deal with.

Taipei Songshan Airport customer review

(Australia)

Decided to fly via Kinmen to mainland China instead of HKG. This required using Taipei's older Songshan Airport instead of Taoyuan Airport. Access to the airport is very quick and easy using the Taipei Metro direct to the front of the airport, something that Taoyuan is yet to get. I used the Domestic Terminal, which is odd in many ways as the domestic arrangements in Taiwan do not follow an international standard. For a start there is a 10KG limit, despite the airline's website saying 20KG was okay (the error was simply a copy and paste from the airline international sister airline and followed international rules). The Check-In counter were arranged in small islands however after getting your boarding pass, you then had to go to another counter along the airside wall for your baggage. While the queue was almost non-existent, why it can not be done at the same counter at the same time defies logic. Baggage tags simply state the name of your destination in English and Chinese, no bar codes and no straight forward ability for transferring to other flights. Due to the limited space on the airside gates, passengers are asked to wait in the Check-In Hall where there are amble lounges and 7Eleven convenience store. When your flight number appears above the Security Door, you can then proceed through to your gate. Flights are very frequent and regular, so this was not a great issue and waiting by the gate or the lounge makes little difference. Overall it was efficient and quick, despite it's quirky nature. On my return flight, the baggage hall housed two belts and the bags appeared quickly enough and I was through and on the metro back into Taipei in little time.
