There is no public bus service between the city proper and the airport. CAAC shuttle buses serve passengers from the CAAC building to the airport & vice visa but they are not frequent.

There is usually stream of taxi stopping in front of hotels for passengers. A ride to the airport via taxi costs about 30 yuan.
