Taichung Airport (traditional Chinese: 臺中航空站; pinyin: Taizhong Hangkong Zhan) (IATA: RMQ, ICAO: RCMQ), commonly known as Taichung Ching Chuang Kang Airport (traditional Chinese: 臺中清泉崗機場), is an airport located in Taichung County, Taiwan for both commercial and military purposes. It is also the third international airport in Taiwan, which now provides charter services to Japan, South Korea, Phuket, and Palau, as well as scheduled flights to Hong Kong and Ho Chi Minh City. Macau is likely to be its future destination.

Taichung Ching Chuang Kang Airport is now shared with Republic of China Air Force Ching Chuan Kang AFB. Despite the fact that it is called an international airport, most of the flights now operated here are domestic, and mainly shuttles to some outlying islands.


Ching Chuan Kang Airport was constructed during the Japanese colonial period and was named Gongguan Airport (Chinese: 公館機場). The airport then expanded in 1954 according to the Sino-American Mutual Defense Treaty, and later renamed Ching Chuan Kang Air Base in memory of General Chiu Ching Chuan on March 20, 1966 with the airport code CCK. It was the largest air force base in the Far East at the time, allowing B-52 Stratofortress to land. During the Vietnam War, Ching Chuan Kang has become a depot for the US Air Force. US Air Force had been garrisoning with two fighter squadrons until the Sino-American Mutual Defense Treaty came into force on March 3, 1955.

As to the civil service, the passenger facilities have constructed since September 4, 2003, and open to service on March 5, 2004, replacing the old Shuinan Airport (Chinese: 水湳機場) located in downtown Taichung. Ching Chuan Kang Airport has ever since become the only airport serving Taichung.
