There is no airport in this city, but people usually arrive at the Jinan Yaoqiang International Airport first and then get there by train or by long-distance bus. In addition, it is only 85 kilometers from Jining Airport in Jiaxiang County which can also help getting there.
Not as convenient as Zibo, Dongying and Tai'an, Jinan's international Airport does not open its shuttle bus line in Qufu. So, visitors should get to Jinan by regular bus and then take the airport shuttle bus (CNY20) or taxi (CNY60-CNY100) to the airport. The local Bus Station has regular buses to Jinan. It will take one and a half hours to get there through expressway.
