Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport (TTIA) has awarded a €33 million consultancy contract for the development of Terminal 3.
The airport currently handles 25 million passengers annually and is preparing for a growth up to 60 million passengers in 2030.
In the near future the surrounding Taoyuan region will be developed for commercial, industrial and residential use with a focus on aviation related activities.
The new Terminal 3 will be connected with Terminal 2 and the area in between will be developed to accommodate a ground transportation centre, parking and commercial real estate.
Both terminals will have stations served by the regional light rail system. The estimated direct investment is €1.25 billion.
A joint venture of NACO, TY Lin and Parsons Brinkerhof will undertake the development project.
Rik Krabbendam, managing director of NACO, said: “We are very proud that TAC has entrusted our team with this assignment.
“The airport expansion will allow the airport to regain a position as a major aviation hub and become an even stronger driver for the national economy, following examples set by Amsterdam Airport Schiphol among others.”
