May I know which campus you will head for, Jinming Campus or Minglun Campus?
These two campuses are about 80 kilometers from the airport. The taxi fare will be around CNY150 in the day time.
Besides, you can take the airport shuttle bus to Kaifeng Xiquhaode Bus Stop. This bus operates during 09:30 to 23:30 with the frequency of about 1 hour. The ticket fare is CNY40/person.
Here are the routes from Xiquhaode Bus Station to two campuses.
Upon arrival, it is only about 5 kilometers to Jinming Campus, and you can take a taxi at the cost of about CNY15 in the day time.
It is about 10 kilometers to Minglun Campus, and the taxi fare will be CNY20-30 in the day time.
