HistoryEdit

Shijiazhuang Zhengding Airport was opened in 1995. It was renamed to Shijiazhuang Zhengding International Airport in July 2008.[3]

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, flights bound for Beijing were being redirected to Shijiazhuang and other nearby airports to minimize imported cases.[4]

Ground transportationEdit

Inter-terminal transportationEdit

The airport provides a free inter-terminal shuttle bus between Terminals 1/2 and Zhengding Airport railway station. They operate every 30 minutes from 6:30 am to 8:30 pm.[13]

RailEdit

The Beijing–Guangzhou–Shenzhen–Hong Kong High-Speed Railway passes within about 3 km south of the airport's terminal. A few trains a day stop at Zhengding Airport railway station, providing convenient service to Shijiazhuang railway station and a few other key stations in the Beijing/Hebei/Henan/Shanxi region.[14]

It takes under 15 minutes for a D- or G-series train to travel from Zhengding Airport railway station to Shijiazhuang railway station.[14]

Shijiazhuang Airport Authority views the railway as an important tool to attract passengers to the airport not just from Shijiazhuang, but from the wider region as well. They have announced a program providing air passengers flying to Shijiazhuang with free train tickets to station such as Beijing West and Zhengzhou; passengers arriving to the airport by train and leaving by plane can have the cost of their train tickets reimbursed as well.[3][15]

BusEdit

There are 5 bus routes to and from points throughout the city including Hebei Stadium, Jinyuan Hotel, Shijiazhuang Railway Station, Dongkaifaqu, Hoton Hotel. The airport buses run to each of the two terminals and cost up to ¥20 per ride depending on the route. The airport buses accept only paper tickets that are sold at each terminal and certain bus stops in the city. The airport also offers inter-city bus services to and from neighboring cities including Baoding, Dingzhou, Anguo, Gaoyang, Xiong'an, Baigou, Xingtai, Hengshui, Anping, Shenzhou, Handan, Cangzhou, Yangquan, Dezhou, Xinji, Zhengding and Luquan.[16]

TaxiEdit

Taxi stations are set on the arrival floor of both terminal 1 and 2. The expense is determined by meter. It usually costs around ¥100 from Zhongshandonglu Air Ticket Office to airport.[17]
