Thank you for your inquiry.

There is no fixed checkin gate and platform. It can be changed according to the arrangement of station. You do not need to worry about it, the checkin gate information will be printed on paper ticket. If you do not have paper ticket in hand, you can also check the information screen in waiting room by train number. There will be detailed checkin gate information listed of each train. Then when your checkin time approached, you can see platform information at the checkin gate. Hope this information can help you.

How long it takes from Dalian station to International Airport?
I have a flight from Dalian International Airport at 15.35. If I arrive at Dalian North station at 13.10, is it possible to catch the flight?

Answered by Charles | Oct. 10, 2019 18:35

Will you catch an international flight or domestic flight within China mainland? If for domestic flight, you can still have a try, if for international flight, the time is not enough. It would take around 50 to 60min by metro from north station to the airport, so you will only be able to reach the airport around 2pm. The time is a little rush for domestic flight, but still possible. For international flight, you need to be at station around 3 hours in advance.

It is very convenient to go by metro service. Line 1 is in service at the North Station. You can take this line 1 to Heishijiao and exit from gate A. The University is only about 800m away. You can walk to there directly. The whole trip should be within 1 hour.
