No flight to Ziyang. You can get direct flight from Singapore to Chengdu and then take a taxi to 双流车站 (not 双流机场车站, make sure this). It costs about 20RMB. The bus station has buses to the city, however, only three buses a day. One it at 1:30, the other is at about 9am in the morning and the thirds is about 3pm. If you come to find the company, you may ask them to pick you up at Chengdu Airport. This will be the best. It is cool now.
