Tainan Airport (TNN) is the main international airport serving the city of Tainan, Taiwan. It is both a military-based and a civil airport, and is the only civil airport in the city. Due to its small size, the airport is only serving 3 airlines, namely China Airlines, China Eastern and Uni Air.
There is currently one airline that flies directly from Hong Kong to Tainan, which is China Airlines.
The airport is located 4.3 miles away from the city center. An average taxi ride from the airport to Tainan city center should cost about 50 HKD.
Hong Kong citizens need to perform an online registration before their arrival into Taiwan, upon which they will be allowed to enter and remain in the country for 30 days. This requires that their passport must have a minimum validity of 6 months.
