In 2018, more than 40 million travelers came in and out of Taoyuan International Airport, which further facilitates tourism and the hospitality industry. Considered the most important city for international commuters to Taiwan, Taoyuan City has been developing towards an airport economics smart city. In addition to forming alliances and engaging with major airport cities around the world, this year, Taoyuan City Government introduces a free luggage delivery service for visitors staying at Taoyuan Gold Medal Hotels. Also with the launch of Taiwan Tourist Shuttle Daxi Express Route starting May 1st, international visitors can easily get to renowned tourist attractions via the convenient Taoyuan Metro and Taiwan Tourist Shuttle services while their luggage is directly delivered to their hotel. By the time they finish touring Daxi, Cihu and other attractions, their luggage is already delivered to the hotel.
Visitors can have their luggage delivered free of charge if they stay at one of the 33 designated hotels in Taoyuan.
According to the Tourism Bureau, starting in May, visitors staying at one of the 33 designated hotels in Taoyuan need to fill out a form online first, and once disembarked at the airport, they should head to the Pelican desk (there is a service desk in both Terminal 1 and 2) to hand over the luggage by 2 p.m., which will then arrive at the hotel by 7 p.m.. Each visitor can have one piece of luggage sent over to the designated hotel free of charge. This program now offers the service to only 3,500 visitors staying at one of the 33 Taoyuan Gold Medal Hotels. If the program turns out great, the bureau will look into expanding the service to allow more visitors to Taoyuan to enjoy a carefree journey starting from Taoyuan Airport without having to carry their luggage.
