Traveling by air in China

The network of Chinese airports has grown rapidly in the last fifteen years. The four main hubs for travel into China are at Hong Kong; Shanghai; Beijing and Guangzhou; from these major airports there are connecting internal flights to all provinces in China. Airports are expanding and multiplying at a remarkable rate with many new routes being opened each year. Hong Kong used to be the main entry point for foreign tourists to China. Air China is the main international airline in China providing a basic service and an excellent safety record. Highest demand and therefore prices are in the holiday period June to September; at Chinese New Year and the public holidays at the beginning of October.

The check-in time requires arrival two hours ahead of flight and the standard baggage allowance is 44 pounds [20 kgs]. There is no longer a departure tax. On arrival a form needs to be submitted giving immigration; customs and health information together with a passport. Checks can be strict, in particular any signs of a viral infection (colds, 'flu) can cause substantial delay - as a precaution against spread of bird flu and other viruses. Most Chinese airports have all the modern facilities that you would expect to find in an advanced country.

Domestic flights

As discounted tickets can often be found, internal flights within China are best bought in China after you have arrived. There are 30 major domestic airlines in China ensuring a competitive market for air travel. They are administered by the CAAC (Civil Aviation Administration of China). Weather in the mountainous south and west often disrupts air travel and so some internal flights are subject to frequent delays and cancellations.

The continued investment in the railway network has made trains a fast, comfortable and inexpensive alternative. In the 1960s and 1970s many Europeans reached China on the Trans-Siberian railway into northern China.


You need to apply for a visa at a Chinese embassy before travel as a visa is required to travel. A standard 30 day travel visa is usually adequate. Although travel to Hong Kong or Macau may not need a visa, onward travel into China does. A specific permit is needed to visit some places in China, most importantly for Tibet and Xinjiang where independent travel is not allowed - you have to go as a member of a group.
