Beijing-Hefei Train vs Flight

Direct flights are available between Hefei and Beijing daily. The total travel time with a flight may be 6 hours or so. First, it takes about 2 hours for a single journey on a flight.

Second, most airports are located a distance from the downtown area so it may take another 2 hours for the airport transfer. Third, for domestic flights, the check-in time closes 45 minutes in advance so you need to arrive at the airport 2 hours prior to the boarding time.

The high-speed trains are punctual in most cases and the bullet train service between the cities usually takes 5 hours. Comparing the punctuality and ticket prices, high-speed trains are preferable when traveling between the cities.
