Comments and Questions

Hi,I was wondering, what time do the airport shuttles to Tiannamen Square stop working? I arrive at midnight and am worried they will not be working!

Mayra, I'm afraid the shuttle bus may stop operating at midnight. You may stay in a nearby hotel and go to the Square the next morning.
Actually, there is no direct bus to the square from PEK. It is more convenient to take airport express line to Dongzhimen and then interchange to subway line 2 to Qianmen; you will find yourself near the southern part of the square.

HiIs there any direct shuttle bus from Capital airport to Nanyuan airport?Regards

Yes, you can take airport shuttle bus line 15 to go directly to Nanyuan Airport, but you should notice that the first bus departs at 21:00. If you arrive during the daytime, I'm afraid you may need to take shuttle bus line 2 to Xidan Lukou Nan first, and transfer to Nanyuan Airport shuttle bus Xidan Line to the destination.

I would be landing at Nanyuan airport around 10.45 am next week and will have to travel to Beijing International airport to catch my Thai flight to Bangkok at 5 pm. What are the options to travel from Nanyuan Airport to International airport - High speed train, Bus??

I am sorry that there is no high speed train service between the two. You may take a shuttle bus to Xidan from Nanyuan Airport for CNY 18. Then, take shutle bus line 2 from Xidan to PEK for CNY 24. Or, you can take a taxi for about CNY 150.

Hi,
I'll arrive at Nanyuan Airport at 21:40; which is the best public trasport to reach Tiananmen square?
Thank you

You may take airport shuttle bus to Qianmen Station for CNY 15. The buses operate until flights finish, so you can catch it. Then, walk north to Tiananmen Square. :)

Dear Sir or Madam, My flight is arriving to Nanyuan Airport at 9 pm, and I have to go Beihang University. Can you please tell me the best way to get there please if possible so let me know the bus and subway / metro lines etc?

John :1/11/2016 3:29:04 AM

The best way is to take a taxi and it costs around CNY90 to the campus.

By public transportation, take bus no. 501 (last bus leaves at 22:00, hope you can catch it) from the terminal building and get off at Ximachang Beikou. Then walk to Jiaomen East metro station to take line 10 to Zhichun Road. Leave from exit F2 and walk to the school.


Dear Sir or Madam, My flight is arriving to Central International Airport at 10 pm, and I have a flight from Nanyuan airport 9.30 am. Can you please tell me the best way to get between two airports and make the time difference not very boring?

Regards,

Sherzod

Hi, you can take airport shuttle bus line 2 to Xidan Lukou South. It operates till 00:00,so you can surely catch it. Check in a hotel nearby to have a rest for hours till 07:00. Then go to Xidan Civil Mansion to take shuttle bus to Nanyuan Airport.

Yoyo :10/11/2015 4:42:48 AM

You can also find a bar near Xidan for a good time overnight and roam around in the early morning for breakfast. Then go to Nanyuan.

I want to take a bus/shuttle from the Nanyuan Airport at midnight to the Capital airport. I fly in the NAY but my sister arrives at PEK, and I have to pick her up.

First of all, no direct shuttle bus connects the two airport. Secondly, transfer is needed if by shuttle bus. However, it would have been out of service at midnight. You'd better to take a taxi instead and it costs around CNY120.

can you help me! I'm in terminal 3 Beijing Capital International Airport and I want take my plane to Chizhou from Beijing Nanyuan Airport

Take capital airport shuttle bus line 2 to Xidan and then transfer to the shuttle bus nearby to Nanyuan Airport directly.
