    CAA may close Pingtung Airport due to low usage rate (2011/02/15)

    Budget concerns have led the Civil Aeronautics Administration to look for ways to improve the low usage rate of some of the country’s airports. In one of the more drastic moves, it may close Pingtung Airport. Opened just six years ago at a cost of NT$1.5 billion, the airport services only about 300 people per month.

    NT$1.5 billion was spent to construct Pingtung Airport, but on some days it has no flights at all. A sign says the electricity has been turned off. The little-used airport is now going to be closed.

    Monthly passenger volume is around 300 and only roughly 30 flights are serviced. It is one of the lower volume airports. We hope that during March we can move toward closing it.

    A 2009 survey of Taiwan’s 18 airports by the National Audit Office showed that apart from Taoyuan International Airport, Taichung Airport and Kinmen’s Shangyi Airport, the other 15 are all being used at less than 50 percent of capacity. Of those, 13 have income so low that they are unable to pay their own personnel costs. The shortfall runs to around NT$240 million annually.

    Mistaken policy decisions have created these huge losses for the national budget. We think this should be reviewed thoroughly.

    In the past, profits from Taoyuan Airport were used to make up for losses of the others. However, starting from this year, a restructuring of the company that runs the Taoyuan Airport reduced the funds allocated for outside use. That forced the hand of the Civil Aeronautics Administration in dealing with the low usage rate of some domestic airports.

    蚊子機場多

    台灣全國機場多達18座,密度高居世界前3名,但其中有15座使用率不到5成,13座的機場收入連人事成本都不夠付,這些靠桃園機場養活的蚊子機場,因為桃園機場改為公司制,民航局不得不正視,今天針對屏東機場,民航局鬆口表示朝關閉的方向努力。

    斥資十五億興建的屏東機場空蕩蕩,一整天都沒有航班起降,告示牌乾脆關掉電源,這麼扯的蚊子機場,終於要關閉。

    [[民航局組長 楊志雄]]
    “現在目前每一個月大概旅客量,大概在三百人左右,班次大概都不到三十班,是目前營運量比較低的機場,我們是希望三個月的時間,朝關閉這個方向努力”

    檢視台灣18座機場,根據審計部的調查,2009年除了桃園、台中清泉崗還有金門尚義外,其它15座的使用率不到5成,其中還有13座機場的收入,連人事成本都無法支應,共短缺2.4億。

    [[立委(民) 賴坤成]]
    “當初錯誤的一個政策,造成這麼多的國家預算的浪費,我們覺得現在應該是,好好來做重新檢討一下”

    以往這些虧損的機場,有桃園機場的盈餘分配基金可以供養,不過從今年開始,桃園機場因為改制公司,分配基金金額將大幅減少,也逼的民航局非得要正視蚊子機場的問題。
