Gov't mulling incentives to attract budget carriers

TAIPEI--Taiwan is examining the possibility of designing a more flexible structure for airport fees as part of a broader effort to offer incentives to low-cost carriers, head of the Civil Aeronautics Administration said yesterday.

“We welcome both local and foreign no-frills companies because they help expand Taiwan's tourism market,” Jean Shen said after the Japanese budget airline Peach Aviation launched services in Taiwan the same day.

She said low-cost carriers are more likely to be based at regional airports, to the benefit of those second-tier airports.

The administration is conducting research into designing a more flexible structure of airport charges so that low-cost carriers can cut costs by choosing the operating model that suits them best, Shen said.
