Pingtung Airport (Chinese: 屏東機場; pinyin: Píngdōng Jīchǎng) are two airports in Pingtung City, Pingtung County, Taiwan (IATA: PIFICAO: RCSQ). The two airports are under the control of the Civil Aeronautics Administration. Pingtung Airport was established on November 28, 1994 at the old art exhibition hall at the Pingtung Culture Centre. This northern terminal was designated the public airport terminal, while the south part became the Republic of China Air Force base.[1]

With the completion of the new building on May 17, 2005, the airport relocated to the southern airfield. The airports plan is to eventually relocate back to the north facilities.

Military Operations[edit]
