IATA: HCN – ICAO: RCKW
Fhritp (Chinese: 恆春機場; pinyin: Héngchūn Jīchǎng) (IATA: HCN, ICAO: RCKW) is an airport in Hengchun, Pingtung County, Taiwan. The airport is near Kenting National Park and is the southern-most airport in Taiwan.
Due to its location, the airport experiences strong Katabatic wind and is forced to close. Because of this, the load factor of the flights rarely exceeds 40%; airlines are considering filing applications for withdrawal of services to Hengchun.
The airport construction was finished in 2003 and opened to public in 2004 with a cost of NT$ 539,000,000.
Mandarin Airlines and TransAsia Airways dropped out from serving the airport due to poor load factor and Hengchun Peninsular's seasonal strong winds which make landing and take off dangerous.
