Terminals, airlines, buildings, and destinations
Terminal 1 is the original passenger terminal of the Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport. It features 22 gates and a row of 11 gates are located on the north end of the airfield facing the north runway and another row of 11 gates are located on the south end airfield facing the south runway. The two concourses that contained the airplane gates are linked together by a main building that contained the check-in areas, baggage claim, passport immigration areas, and security checkpoint areas.
Terminal 2 opened in 2000 to reduce congestion in Terminal 1. The South Concourse alone has 10 gates, each with 2 jetways and their own security checkpoints. The North Concourse opened later in 2005, bringing the total number of gates for Terminal 2 to 20 gates; the security checkpoints were moved to a central location in front of the passport control.
