Reliable Shanghai Hongqiao Airport Transfer

Shanghai is located on China’s Central Coast and is the country’s largest and most financially prominent city. Be sure to take a stroll along the Bund, a stunning waterfront promenade that’s lined with colonial buildings and has a breathtaking view of the Pudong district’s futuristic skyline. From cultural gardens and museums to modern restaurants and skyscrapers, there’s so much to see in Shanghai. When it comes to getting from Hongqiao Airport (SHA) to the city centre, there’s only one direct and quick transfer option, a Shanghai Hongqiao airport taxi.

After you’ve collected your baggage, you will walk out of the arrivals hall and see your friendly Hongqiao airport taxi driver waiting patiently for you, holding a sign with your name on it. To ensure a perfect pick up every time, our drivers receive live updates on any changes or delays to your flight time. After a warm greeting, your driver will help you carry your luggage to your pre-selected vehicle to begin your transfer.

As you make your way into central Shanghai, your driver will answer any questions you may have about this sprawling city and will share with you a few must-see local spots to enjoy during your stay. Let Welcome Pickups take care of all your Shanghai Hongqiao airport transfer needs, so you can simply sit back, relax and enjoy the ride.

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. 

Frequently asked questions

Do I have to book my Hongqiao airport taxi in advance?

There are plenty of local Hongqiao airport taxi drivers available outside of the terminal building, however, during peak travel times or bad weather, there may be a long wait for an available vehicle. If you’d like to have a guaranteed on-time pickup, we suggest rebooking your Shanghai Hongqiao airport transfer in advance with Welcome Pickups.

How will I find my Welcome driver?

To ensure you know exactly who will be picking your up for your Shanghai Hongqiao airport transfer, we will send you an email containing your driver’s name, photo and phone number. Then, on the day of your pickup, your driver will be waiting outside of the arrivals hall, holding a sign with your name clearly printed on it.

To make sure your transfer goes as smoothly as possible, you can also download our Mobile Application, and track your driver’s exact location in real-time.
