The airport started as a Japanese military airbase during the Occupation. In 1946, it came to be controlled by the Republic of China's Air Force. Before the establishment of the People's Republic of China, the airport provided flight routes between Shanghai and Taipei, occasionally via Fuzhou.
Shared with the militia, civilian use -- both domestic and international -- began on April 16, 1950 in the reconstructed The Ministry of Transportation and Communications, Civil Aeronautics Administration Taipei Airport (交通部民用航空局台北航空站). Domestic destinations have been Kaohsiung, Hualien, Taichung, Makung, and Tainan. The first international destinations were Seattle, Tokyo, Pusan, Manila (airport is in suburbs of Metro Manila), Bangkok, and Hong Kong. The first international airlines include Japan Airlines, Malaysian Airlines, and Indonesia Airlines. All international activities were relocated to Chiang Kai-shek International Airport after its inauguration on February 26, 1979.
An issue of contention is whether planned future flights to the mainland would fly out of Sungshan Domestic or CKS International (since some in Taiwan consider the mainland "domestic" while others do not). Mayor Ma Ying-jeou has been pressing to make Sungshan Airport Taipei's main cross-strait terminal, citing that its location close to the city center would make it preferable for business travellers. However, some members of the pan-green coalition have cited that allowing mainland flights to land so close to the presidential headquarters would cause a security hazard.
