Xian pick up and drop off at XIY airport


Ground transportation to Xi’an Xianyang International Airport

As one of the largest airports in North China, Xi'an Xianyang International Airport is a very busy and isolated facility just 25 miles from downtown Xi’an. The airport is home to three terminals; Terminals 1 - 3. All three terminals provide two levels, with the lower level handling arrivals and the upper level handling departures. Terminals 1 and 2 are domestic terminals located directly next to each other, while Terminal 3 is an international terminal located a bit further from the other two. Inter-terminal transportation is limited, and passengers in need of a transfer are expected to use taxiways. Ground transportation includes an on-site rail link connecting to the Xi’an North Railway Station, plus long-distance bus routes that connect to downtown Xi’an as well as to other nearby towns and cities.
