The Lunar New Year break starts Thursday, but vacationers have already hit the airports. At Taoyuan International Airport, total passenger traffic reached 127,000 on Wednesday. Let’s hear from those involved.

Traveler
I’m off to Los Angeles for three or four days, and then I’ll fly to Mexico.

Traveler
Today we’re leaving for Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. We got here three and a half hours before the flight, because we worried that there might be traffic jams due to Spring Festival.

Ringo Lee
Travel Quality Assurance Association
Travelers are advised to check in at their airline counter three hours in advance. Travel insurance is also recommended.

During the holiday period, peak hours at Taoyuan’s Terminal 1 will be between 5 a.m. and 2 p.m. At Terminal 2, peak hours will be from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Passengers are advised to head to the airport early, as there will be a good chance of congestion on the freeway.
