These rides follow almost the same route as High Speed types except 1303/1304. Passengers are suggested to avoid this pair of rides as they take longer time and cost more as well. Considering the running speed, it is advisable to choose the rides by the following order if the schedule fits: Z types, T types and finally K types.

1303/1304 has stopovers at Bazhou, Renqiu, Raoyang, Shenzhou, Hengshui, Dayingzhen, Linqing, Liaocheng, Yanggu, Taiqian, Liangshan, Yuncheng, Heze, Dingtao, Caoxian, Shangqiu, Ninglingxian, Lankao, Kaifeng

Flights VS. High Speed Trains

In addition, there are 2 pairs of flights a day between with duration around 1.5 hours. However, since the airports are far from the city center, it does not differ much if you take the transfer time into consideration. The flight ticket price is usually higher compared with rail service, thus trains, especially the high speed ones are more recommended due to their frequency and reasonable ticket price.

How to buy a ticket on G89 from Beijing West to Zhengzhou East?

Thank you for your inquiry.
We suppose the tickets are not available therefore the book button is in grey color and cannot work. The train G89's final stop is in Chengdu and Zhengzhou is only a stop during the way. There is very few tickets offered to the stopover stations. It is more recommended to choose other trains instead. Hope for your kind understanding.
