Directions for Your Shanghai Hongqiao Airport Taxi
Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport (SHA) is one of two airports serving Shanghai and the surrounding areas in China. Hongqiao Airport is the smaller of the two international transport hubs and mainly serves domestic and regional flights. The airport is located 19 km from the city centre of Shanghai, so taking a Hongqiao airport taxi shouldn’t take longer than 40 minutes in light traffic.
Once your driver has exited the airport compound, they will head South onto 3rd Shenda Road before taking a right to continue onto 5th Shedna Road. You will then take a right onto Wenhong Road and then left at the 1st cross street onto Qixin Road. After around 200 meters, your driver will then take the ramp to Shanghai Urban Area and merge onto the Hongyu Elevated Road. Following this road for around 2 km, your driver will then merge onto the A9, which continues onto the Yan’an Elevated Road. You will follow this road for another 7 km, before turning left onto Tibet Middle Road and then left onto People’s Avenue. This avenue will lead you right into the heart of Shanghai.
Benefits of Booking Your Hongqiao Airport Taxi with Welcome
Although there are local Hangqaio airport taxis available 24/7, there can be a long queue during peak travel times and the cost can vary greatly, depending on the time of day and exactly where in the city you’re travelling to. However, if you book your Shanghai Hongqiao airport transfer in advance with Welcome Pickups, you can enjoy set-rate fares, guaranteed on-time pickups, friendly English speaking drivers and 24/7 customer support.
Cost of a Shanghai Hongqiao Airport Transfer
The local Shanghai Hongqiao airport taxi drivers don’t offer set-rate fares for the journey into the city centre. Instead, factors such as time of day, the number of passengers and the distance travelled will determine your fare. Having said this, the average cost for a Hongqiao airport transfer is €11 (CNY 80) during the day and €14 (CNY 100) at night (23:00 to 05:00) with light traffic.
If you’d prefer the peace of mind that comes with a set-rate fare, you can always pre-book your Shanghai Hongqiao airport transfer with Welcome Pickups.
