Welcome to Shanghai Hong Qiao Airport

The airport is situated eight miles (13km) southwest of central Shanghai.

Information & Facts

Airport Taxis

Taxis are available outside the airport but finding the right one can be confusing without assistance. Taxi drivers usually do not speak English so it is best to indicate your destination on a map, or have it written down in Chinese. The meter should be turned on and the charge should not exceed RMB3 per kilometre.

Car Rental

Car rental is available. Tel: +86 (0)21 5114 2112 for more information.

City Transfers

Taxis are available outside the airport. Public buses serve the airport linking to People's Square (#925A) and the main railway stations (#941). Departures are every 15 minutes from 6am to around 11pm. The fare is approximately RMB4. The bigger hotels offer shuttle bus services to and from the airport.

There are ATMs and currency exchange facilities, a post office, and duty-free shops. There is a shopping mall just outside the entrance to the airport. There are also a variety of food outlets, bars, an information counter and business centre. Smoking is banned throughout the airport.

The official language is Mandarin Chinese, but there are hundreds of local dialects.

The currency used in China is the Renminbi Yuan (CNY). The Yuan is divided into 10 chiao/jiao or 100 fen. Make sure you exchange your leftover Yuan before returning home because this currency can be exchanged only within China's borders. Travellers cheques, preferably in US Dollars, and foreign cash can be exchanged in cities at the Bank of China. Banks are closed weekends. The larger hotels and the special 'Friendship Stores' designed for foreigners will accept most western currencies for purchases. Major credit cards are accepted in the main cities at various establishments, but outside the major cities acceptance is limited. ATMs are scarce outside the main cities.

Local time is GMT +8.
