With international travel largely off limits, Taiwan offers ample opportunities for you to get away. Perhaps unfamiliar to the newly arrived visitor/resident to Taiwan, Taiwan’s three domestic airlines offer a number of flights to idyllic destinations. You may find it surprising that approximately 5 million passengers fly domestically each year.

Here is a quick glance of airports in Taiwan with domestic flights.

There are three main airlines for domestic flights to choose from — Mandarin Airlines, UNI Air and Daily Air. Mandarin Airlines is the domestic airline subsidiary of China Airlines. Uni Air is the domestic airline subsidiary of EVA Airways. Daily Air is a private airline company that mostly services passengers traveling to the outlying islands from Taitung.
