After typhoon, Taoyuan airport expediting flights

Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport is expediting traffic on Wednesday after Typhoon Megi, which battered the country a day earlier, left Taiwan and moved west to China.

The airport is expected to handle 750 flights Wednesday, and all flights disrupted by the typhoon were expected to return to normal by Thursday at noon, according to the airport.

The airport said more than 120,000 passengers are likely to pass through the airport on Wednesday, about 12,000 more than normal.

A total of 189 domestic flights and 35 international flights around Taiwan were canceled and 59 international flights were delayed due to Typhoon Megi, according to figures from the Central Emergency Operation Center.
