xian xianyang airport

The Xi’an Xianyang International Airport is the main airport that serves Xi’an, the capital of China’s Shaanxi Province. The airport covers an entire area of 5 square kilometers; despite its name, the airport is actually within the administrative territory of Xianyang City, which is just a neighboring city of Xi’an.

The Xi’an International Airport is noted as the largest airport in northwest China and also the busiest, logging in up to 18 million passengers in 2010. It is also the airport with the most international connections in the northwestern part of China.

Additionally, the airport is known for its unique, more open and more welcoming environment that other airports don’t usually offer; thus, it offers passengers passing through it a pleasant travel experience. The airport is currently being expanded; construction of a new terminal building as well as a second runway is currently underway.

Taxi

The fastest way to travel to Xi’an International Airport is by taxi, although it is certainly not for the budget travelers. The best taxi fares for a trip between the airport and the city center can already reach up to CNY 100 to CNY 120. However, if you are coming from the airport, some taxi drivers may increase the price and may refuse to use the meter. When coming from the airport, follow the airport directions leading to the taxi parking lots and choose the green taxis. Make sure to negotiate the fare before you get in the car.

Carpooling is also an option and is, in fact, the most economical and also the fastest. The fare for carpooling is only around CNY 60 to 70 for every person.
