Jiuhuang Flights

Because of the earthquake on Aug. 8th, 2017, direct flights to/from many cities have been cancelled. Currently, Jiuhuang Airport only operates 2 air routes to Chengdu and Chongqing. Visitors are suggested to reconfirm the flight schedules or postpone travel plans to Jiuzhaigou.

 Tips for Taking Flight
1. It is recommended to arrive at the airport 1.5 hours beforehand since the check-in counter is closed 30 minutes before flight departure.
2. 16th Nov. to 31st Mar. is the low season of Jiuzhaigou and Huanglong, so flights from Chongqing and Xi'an might be canceled and the airport shuttle bus may also be canceled. Visitors can go to Chengdu first and then take a flight to get there.
3. The demand for air tickets has always exceeded supply since the opening of the airport. Passenger should book tickets in advance.
4. With a high altitude, the temperature variation from day to night at the airport is very big. Passengers should take care to stay warm.
5. Due to its special geographical position and very changeable weather, flight delays happen frequently.

Well, as I know, the departure time of Shuttle Bus is unsure since it leaves when it’s full. If you are in a hurry, you are suggested to charter a local car or minibus to the airport. The fare for a van may be CNY 250-300, and you can share the fare with other passengers.

It takes CNY400-450 in total. You can charter a minivan in the airport. Sometimes, there are other visitors landing at the airport in hope of hiring a car. You may share one and save some money.

Based on my experience, I’d like to recommend you with the eHi Cars Service. They have the English official website for foreign visitors. As the specific price, you may consult them by the hotline 400-888-6608 because different routes have different prices.

There is no rental car service at the airport. Closest car rental "ShenZhou Car Rental" is 10km away, and speaks chinese only, and offer van only. No taxi driver would want to take you there.

Also You will need to go through the temp driver license application in major airport like Beijing, international drive license is not allowed. It took me 1.5 hours, running up and down 1st, 2nd, 4th floor.

Are there buses or taxis at JZH for flight arriving at 22:15 to Jiuzhaigou?
Taking a late flight into JZH from Chengdu, arriving at 22:15 in the night, will there be buses to Jiuzhaigou or would it be safer to prebook a private car? How much would that be? Many thanks.
