Questions & Answers on Nanchang Changbei Airport
Asked by Charlie from UNITED KINGDOM | Jan. 05, 2020 08:21Reply
Hi there! I'm going to be landing in KHN at 1:30am, and my next flight to TPE will be at 8:30am
so I see little point in booking a hotel. However, I'm led to believe the airport is not open to the public at night. Would it be safe for me to stay within the waiting room or would you advise a hotel?

Many people say that the airport will be closed after the arrival of last flight. So you might need to book a hotel near the ariport, like Xinfeng Business Hotel. If you can spend the night at the airport, it is recommended that you ask the staff where passengers can be allowed to stay overnight.

Answered by Tyler from USA | Oct. 16, 2019 01:02

Upon landing, you can take airport bus no.1 to Changbei Bus Stop. Then transfer to bus no.210 to the West Gate of the campus.
For your convenience, you can also take a taxi to the destination. The cab fare is CNY 50 to 60 in the day time.

I have a 3 hour transfer in Nanchang Airport
I am from the US. I am going from Thailand to Nanchang (3 hour layover) to Beijing (where I can use the 144 hour visa free transit). I am now seeing that I might need a visa just to get to my connecting flight within the Nanchang airport???! (I am not leaving the airport). Has anyone experienced this? Is this true? I tried to call the embassy but they didn’t pick up. I tried to call the airport, but they had very limited options for English.) Any recommendations?

Answered by Bobby from USA | Sep. 28, 2019 23:07

Yes, you need to apply for a Chinese visa. Also, you are not eligible for 144 hour visa free transit since your route is US-Nanchang-Beijing.

Upon landing, take airport shuttle bus line 1 to Changbei Station. Then take bus no.22 to Yanyuan Road Middle Fenghuang Road. Walk southwest around 450 meters to find the hotel.

Hi there. Can you book a room in the Nanchang airport hotel in advance?
Or only when you get to the airport? Thanks

Oh, generally speaking, there will have enough rooms. Thus you can just go to the hotel when you arriving at the airport.
