Tips on Finding Cheap Flights to Xi'an

1. Taking connecting flights may be a good choice if you have enough travel time. They are usually sold with higher discounts than the direct ones.

2. Avoid the holidays in China like Chinese New Year and National Day Holiday, when the domestic flights to Xi'an are sold with little or none discount. Also, you are advised to travel in low season from November to next March to save money, when the discount is generally 30%-60% off; in high season from April to October, the discount is usually 20%-40% off.

3. Keep close eyes on the fare changes on airlines’ official websites because they will release some special tickets every now and then. Sometimes, the tickets on official websites are much cheaper than those on all kinds of booking Apps.

4. Compare the fares on some booking Apps and the official websites to obtain the cheapest tickets.

The airline website says "Passengers taking international/regional flights and transfer via Xiamen to other international/regional destinations with both segments operated by Xiamen Airlines at the same day, are eligible for through check-in baggage at the originating airport and do not need to pick up the checked baggage at Xiamen Airport.". So the luggage should work. If you stay within 24 hours for a transit only (with flight tickets confirmed), you do not need a visa. You can got more information on the airlines website.
