Foshan Shadi Airport

Airport Code: CZP

  Location: Shakeng, Luocun, Nanhai District
  Brief Introduction: Foshan has its own airport which is for both military and civilian use, and has been operating since 1985. However, it stopped civilian flights in 2002. In order to reduce the pressure on the Guangzhou New Baiyun Airport, the government reopened Foshan Airport as an important lateral airport on 18 November 2009. It is now solely served by China United Airlines, with daily flights to Wuxi and Beijing Nanyuan Airport.

Terminal, Facilities and Services

There is one terminal in the airport covering an area of nearly 4,000 square meters. The terminal is on 3 levels - the first level is the passenger terminal, the second level is the business area, while the third level is the Civil Aviation Office. At the entrance to the first level, there are service desks for tickets, left luggage, enquiries, lost property, plus a check-in counter. In front of the entrance, there are three security check channels, one of which provides VIP access for passengers travelling first class, or those who are young, old, or sick, and for airport staff. There are also a first aid room, police station, public telephone and ATM in the hall. In the departure lounge there are VIP and first class waiting rooms with comfortable sofas, and more than 20 rows of stainless steel seats which can accommodate nearly 500 passengers. Two boarding gates are set at the end of the departure lounge and passengers can board planes via an escalator. It takes about 5 minutes to go from the boarding pass counter to the boarding gate by foot.

Yes, there is an airport in Shunde. However, I’m afraid there is no flight between Birmingham to there. You can take a flight to Guangzhou and then take a shuttle bus to Shunde.

From Hong Kong, you can pass the border from Luohu Port and enter Shenzhen first. Then walk to Luohu Bus Station. There are some direct coaches that can take you to the destination. The bus schedules are from 07:10 to 20:50. The ticket fare is CNY 93 per person.

FS is not a busy place like other big cities in China (Beijing, Shanghai or Guangzhou).
In addition, the distance between FS and Guangzhou is about 19 miles (30 kilometers). It's not a far distance.

The Longyatt Hotel is highly recommened. It is located at no. 2, Nanhu 2nd Road, Luocun Village, Nanhai District. The hotel provides quality service and clean environment. It is 2 miles from the airport. So, you may taxi there for about CNY 11.

If we land in Foshan airport on 10 march 00.30 can we catch free shuttle bus to Guangzhou

Answered by Edie from NEW ZEALAND | Mar. 04, 2015 20:19

I'm afraid not. It is too late and the shuttle bus to Guangzhou would have been out of service. You can hire a taxi to Guangzhou or stay nearby for a night and head for your destination in the next morning.
