Final destination Taipei (TPE/TSA), Taiwan

I have found one of the most epicness spotting place on the world on the Instagram profile jal_kana (aviation spotter from Taipei region) in March 2019 and I have decided to the visit this place. My goal destination was Songshan Airport in the heart of the Taipei. Unfortunately I couldn’t reach TSA airport direct from the Europe. Songshan Airport is used only for domestic flights and regional international routes (Japan, China, etc). International long haul flights are operated at Taoyuan International Airport (TPE) near Taipei.

Carriers and Airports

I have decided for flights with KLM and Air France from Munich for 2 reasons. First reason was a price. I’m based in Prague but the tickets from Prague Airport were too much expensive around 50% more than flights from Munich. Second reason was a carrier. I could choose between flights with KLM + Air France or Air China. I have decided for the KLM + Air France because Air China offered flights only with a long transfer time in Beijing.

 

I choose Eurolines for my first part of the trip from Prague to Munich. One way ticket from Prague ÚAN Florenc was less than 20 EUR.

Munich Airport, Terminal 2

Flight from MUC to AMS was scheduled on the afternoon so I had some time for exploring. I visited observation deck at Terminal 2 with a extraordinary sight on the apron.

My luggage with everything what I need for my trip (camera, battery, chargers, clothes, etc). Bag is in a onboard size and on the side i had mount small travel tripod.

My flight KL 1798 to Amsterdam was scheduled at 5:50 p.m.

KLM and Air France are sending boarding pass via Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, Twitter and of course by the e-mail.
