Jingzhou Transportation


Jingzhou Shashi airport was originally a simple airport constructed by the army of the Kuomintang. In 1992, the airport was reconstructed. It is ranked as a second class airport in China. It has an airstrip of 1,800 meters. Boeing 737s can take off and land around the clock. Now, Jingzhou Shashi airport has routes to 15 domestic cities including: Guangzhou, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Xiamen and other cities.

The area has the G50 Shanghai and Chongqing Highway, the G55 Highway, the Jingzhou Yangtze River Bridge, and the Jing Yue Yangtze River Highway Bridge.

The major long distance bus stations are the Shashi Long Distance Bus Station, the Shashi Red Avenues Bus Station, the Jiangjin Road Bus Station, the Liaoyuan Bus Station, and the Jiangling Central Station in the Jingzhou District.

hi am travelling to china tomorrow from zambia am landing in guangzhou how much is airfare or train to jingzhou need help soon
Dear catherine, I would like to check with you which city you want to go. Do you mean Jingzhou city(荆州市)which is in Hubei province? If so, you could take a train from Guangzhou north railway station to Wuhan city, and then change another train to Jingzhou. There is no airport in Jingzhou. It takes about 4 hours by high speed train to Wuhan and about 2 hours by bullet train from Wuhan to Jiangzhou.

Hi, my flight will arrive Wuhan airport 23:05. Is there a way to go to Jingzhou during that hours?

Hi Home, I am afraid that there are even no taxies available at that time. It is suggested that you stay one night in Wuhan and head for Jingzhou the next day.
