Taipei Taoyuan Airport Terminal 1 used to be the main passenger terminal until the opening of Terminal 2 in 1979.

Originally, Terminal 1 counted with a couple of concourses where the 22 boarding gates are hosted (11 boarding gates in each concourse). Nowadays, due to Terminal 2 opening, Terminal 1 has 18 boarding gates. On the other hand, north and south concourses now are called Concourse A and Concourse B.

China Airlines mainly uses gates A, while Cathay Pacific uses gates B.

Both concourses are linked by the main building, which hosts the check-in counters, baggage claim, immigration and security checkpoint.
