Reliable and Convenient Xian Airport Transfers

Xi’an Airport, often seen spelt as ‘Xian’, is the largest airport in northwest China, serving millions of passengers all year round. It’s located approximately 38 km from Xian city centre so if you wish to reach your hotel quickly and comfortably after a long flight, your best shot is to pre-book your Xian airport shuttle with a top-rated company like Welcome Pickups.

Arriving in a foreign country where you don’t know the local language can be stressful, so having a local, English-speaking driver greet you warmly can take a lot of the weight off. Instead of lining up to get a taxi from the rank or getting crammed on the bus, with Welcome you get a private Xian Airport taxi and a professional, handpicked driver, who will help you with your luggage and take you directly to your hotel. Even if your flight is delayed, nothing happens to your booking as your driver will monitor the flight for any delays or changes. You won’t even have to worry about local currency as your transfer will be prepaid, allowing you to sit back, relax and enjoy the scenery until you reach the city.

During your ride, feel free to ask your driver anything about the local culture or places that you definitely shouldn’t miss during your stay; that’s the benefit of having a local drive you to your hotel. Xian taxis can be hard to find during peak times, so if you want a reliable way to move around the city comfortably, your driver can help you book as many transfers as you need with Welcome Pickups.

What our customers say about Welcome

"Anabelia, our tour guide was wonderful. She guided us through history and food and made great suggestions and enabled us to understand Greek culture and the food. I would highly recommend this tour.”

Getting to Xian City Centre with your Xian Airport Shuttle

The journey from Xian Airport to the city centre should take about 45 minutes without any heavy traffic. Despite the distance, the route is not very complicated, so you can check it on your mobile phone during your journey. Once you exit the parking area, your driver will take the Airport Expressway/S1 and stay on it for a while. Then, you will continue on Zhu Honglu for about 5 km, following the signs for Longshou North Road/Long Shou Bei Lu/North Second Ring/Bei Er Huan. Your driver will then follow local routes, depending on where your hotel or final destination is located.

Why Choose a Welcome Xian Airport Taxi

How to get from the airport to the city is one of the first things you need to look up when you’re planning your trip. With Welcome Pickups, there is no need for exhaustive research and you don’t need to worry about large crowds arriving at the same time as you, the local currency, or getting overcharged. You can easily pre-book your Xian Airport taxi in only a few minutes and pay for it with your card in advance. A few days before your transfer, you’ll be assigned an English-speaking, professional driver who will have your flight number to monitor any delays and will be waiting for you at the airport holding a sign with your name on it. You will even have extra waiting time to go through customs and claim your luggage stress-free. After all, stress and vacations don’t go together, so opt for an enhanced travel experience with Welcome.

Xian Airport Transfer Fares

Xian Airport is located in Xianyang city and around 38 km from Xian city centre. Within city limits, taxis usually operate using a taximeter but for routes outside the city, rates can be higher due to factors like tolls or “empty” kilometres for the driver. On average, a Xian Airport transfer will cost approximately €17 (CNY 120) for up to 4 passengers during day time and €21.50 (CNY 150) during the nighttime (from 23:00 to 06:00).

Frequently asked questions

Is finding a Xian airport taxi easy upon landing at XIY?

Xian Airport is one of the busiest in China. However, you can easily find a Xian Airport taxi 24/7 available at the taxi ranks outside all Terminals. The official licensed Xian taxis are green with a yellow stripe in the middle but you might also see some black taxis that offer a more luxurious service. Even if there are long queues during peak times, avoid taking a taxi that isn’t waiting at the official airport taxi rank, as the driver might be unlicensed. Of course, you can also book your Xian Airport transfer ahead of time for a hassle-free process, a competitive fare and no hidden fees, to avoid surprises.

Where will I find my Welcome driver?

If you’re arriving at Xian Airport on an international flight, you will exit through Terminal 3. Your Welcome driver will meet you on the first floor, outside the Arrivals Hall and they will be holding a sign with your name on it. You will have received an email with the driver’s photo and contact details a day before you arrive, so you should have no trouble spotting them, or reaching them with any questions.

What happens to my booking if there is a flight delay?

With Welcome Pickups, you don’t have to worry about flight delays. When you make your booking you’ll be asked to submit your flight number so that your driver can monitor the flight and in case of any delays, adjust your pickup time accordingly. If the assigned driver is unavailable at the new arrival time, you’ll be notified and assigned a new driver, so you still get your transfer!
