Dear Tony, There is no any shuttle buses from the college to Nanchang airport. It is also not easy to take a bus to get there. I suggest you take a taxi from your college to the airport. Or you could take a taxi to the train station, then take a shuttle bus to the airport. Lussie Lu replied on 2014-01-06
