Beijing – Hefei Train vs. Flight

Direct flights from Hefei to Beijing and vice versa are available daily. Beijing to Hefei flights takes about 2 hours for a single journey. However, the airports are a little far from the downtown area, and the travel time to/from the airport may take over an hour.  Passengers are also required to arrive at the airport 2 hours prior to the boarding time. In this case, the total travel time by flight may be 6 hours or so. Also, flight delays can be easily cased due to weather change or air traffic control.

High speed rail service usually takes 4 - 5 hours between the two cities and they are punctual in most cases. Compared with flights, bullet trains will be a preferable choice because of their punctuality and more competitive ticket price. Rail ticket fare is fixed all the time, but flight ticket price fluctuates frequently, especially in peak season, flight costs more than rail. What’s more, high speed train provides more leg room, which provides more pleasant travel experience.

Thank you for your inquiry.

The detailed price depends on the train type and seat class. For second class seats on high speed type, it should be CNY436 per ticket for adult. According to the railway company's policy, the child under 120cm can board for free by sharing the seat with adult and the child under 150cm can buy child ticket with a discount 50% off. You can check the height of two children to see if you need to buy tickets or not. Thank you.
