Taiwan travel during coronavirus – Information about available flights and routes

Following the statement of Foreign Secretary, Dominic Raab, on 23 March, we are strongly urging UK travellers overseas to return home where and while there are still commercial routes to do so. Around the world, more airlines are suspending flights and more airports are closing, some without any notice.

Please note the flight fares now are exceptionally high, and could continue to rise.

Below we provide:

  • Information about available flights and routes out of Taiwan
  • English-language travel agents

The following information is correct as of Friday 22 May, 12:00 (Taiwan time). We will try our best to keep this list up-to-date, but the situation is changing quickly so some routes may cease to operate at very short notice.

Summary: available flights and routes in the next two weeks

Our search found flights available from Taipei to London on 26, 29, 31 May and 1-5 June.

Transits

Transits in Seoul:

Transiting South Korea is possible if you go through the same airport and do not go through immigration. Transit passengers receive a temperature check on arrival in Korea. Travellers who do not show symptoms may continue on their journey. All passengers entering South Korea are subject to a 14-day mandatory quarantine. This means that passengers who leave the airport and stay in a hotel for a connecting flight on a different day would be mandatory quarantined for 14 days. F
