If I catch the first train to Longjia Airport at 8am, will I be able to catch a train at 9am?

Thank you for your inquiry.

Usually we suggest our clients to reach airport around 2 hours in advance for domestic flights and 3 hours in advance for international flights. The ticket counter would stop changeing boarding pass 45min in advance. 1 hour at airport is indeed very risky. If any delay, you could miss your flight.

How to go to Pullman Hotel at ChangBaiShan from ChangChun Railways
Answers (1)
Answered by Taya from LATVIA | Dec. 25, 2019 18:29

There is no direct rail from Changchun to Changbaishan. If you want to go by rail, you may need to go to Tonghua first and then change train to Songjianghe. Then you can take a taxi to reach the hotel. It is easier to take a train from Changchun station to Longjia airport and then take the flight to Changbaishan, then go to hotel by taxi.

Is it possible to find taxi even at midnight? If it safe to use taxi service along that time?

Answered by Lola | Jul. 15, 2019 18:43

Taxi can always be found at a station but maybe less at midnight. It is safe if you use official taxi, means go by meter. If you are very worried about it, you may contact the hotel to see if they can arrange pick up service.

There is a railway station called Longjia Railway Station which is inside the airport, just about 700m away. You can take a high speed C ride to Jilin directly. It would take around 30min only and cost CNY23 for a second class seat. There are about 20 rides a day for this trip.
Answered by Patricia Koh from SINGAPORE | Jun. 15, 2018 04:56

Hi Rock, thanks for your quick answer. May I just ask what you mean by high speed C? I intend to go sometime early February 2019 and intend to buy in advance the HSR tickets when available.
Answered by Rock | Jun. 19, 2018 05:43

It is the train code. If you check the schedule, you can see there are many rides with a code start with letter "C". It belongs to high speed rides also.
Answered by Patricia from SINGAPORE | Jun. 19, 2018 20:35

Thank you very much Rock for the assistance. Very much appreciated.
