First, you’d better take the early bus No.808 at Zhuhailukou station, about 3 minutes’ walk from the hotel. The get off at Yichang Long-distance Bus Station where there are direct bus to the airport. The whole ride needs about 80 minutes. Or you can take a taxi, taking about 30 minutes and CNY60 - 80.
