Thank you for your inquiry.

Ticket office is right on the 1F, on the left hand of main entrance. You can buy ticket there by showing all passengers travel document. The station should accept e ticket now, there will be no paper ticket, but you can scan travel document or QR code for boarding. Hope this information can help you.

There are shuttle buses from all 3 stations to the airport. Jinan East station should be the nearest one. It says there is a shuttle bus runs around every 30min from this east station to the airport and passenger who hold a rail ticket for that day can take it for free.

It is at No. 1 North Minghu Street, just next to the Daminghu Lake. It is about 5km between Jinan station and this Daminghu station. You may take BRT No. 5 or taxi directly.
