Local transport


There's no train connection between the airport and Kunming. There are buses to one of the two train stations in the city, from where you can travel on to other destinations.

Car and bus

Kunming Airport is situated only four kilometers from the city center and is easily accessible by rental car. Kunming Shi Highway leads directly to the airport. This freeway connects with both the outer and inner ring road of Kunming. Via these ring roads you can easily access any destination in the city. Keep in mind though that many destinations are only indicated in Chinese.

Three city buses (52, 67 and 78) connect the airport with Kunming. These buses have their terminus at one of the two train stations in the city.

Many hotels offer a shuttle bus service.

Car rental Kunming Wujiaba Airport

There are only counters of Chinese car rental companies in the Arrivals Hall. In most cases they rent out chauffeur-driven cars.


There are taxis outside the Arrivals Hall. Not all taxis have a meter and when they do, drivers often claim they are broken. A ride to the city takes about 20 minutes and costs approximately 15 yuan.

Airport Parking

The short-term parking lot lies just outside the terminal. An open-air long-term parking lot lies a bit further out. More information about parking at Kunming Airport via Tel. +86(0)871 711 6114.
