The political and legal statuses of Taiwan are contentious issues. The People’s Republic of China (PRC) claims that the Republic of China (Taiwan) government is illegitimate, referring to it as the “Taiwan Authority”. The ROC, however, with its own constitution, independently elected president and armed forces, continues to view itself as a sovereign state. The present territory of the state has never been controlled by the PRC. Internationally, there is controversy on whether the ROC still exists as a state or a defunct state per international law due to the loss of membership / recognition in the United Nations and lack of wide diplomatic recognition.
The main international airports of Taiwan are:
* Taiwan Taoyuan Airport
* Taipei Songshan Airport
EVA Air, UNI Air, Taiwan Airways, Great China
FAT (Far Eastern Air Transport)
