    Hello Arun Prasad,

    As far as I know, few people would take a taxi from Xining to Lanzhou airport. What’s your departure time for your flight on 6th June, 2013? Most people would choose to either take the 3-hour train or the 3-hour fast shuttle buses going from Xining to Lanzhou (227km), then take the airport bus or taxi from the city center Lanzhou to Lanzhou airport(70km) and about one and half hours.

    1. Taking a 3-hour train ride from Xining to Lanzhou. There are daily 17 trains connecting Xining and Lanzhou. Train fare: RMB131 P/P.
    Then take a taxi from Lanzhou Railway Station to Lanzhou airport, 70km and taxi fare: RMB100 per taxi
    Or you may take the airport shuttle from Lanzhou Aviation Building to Lanzhou airport RMB30 per person (about one and half hours). You may first take a taxi from Lanzhou Railway Station to the Aviation Building
    ( very near, taxi fare less than RMB10).

    Approxi total time: 5 hours

    2. Take a 3-hour fast shuttle bus from Xining to Lanzhou. Lanzhou Bus Station is close to the Lanzhou Railway Station.
    Then take a taxi from Lanzhou Bus Station to Lanzhou airport, 70km and taxi fare: RMB100 per taxi
    Or you may take the airport shuttle from Lanzhou Aviation Building to Lanzhou airport RMB30 per person (about one and half hours). You may first take a taxi from Lanzhou Bus Station to the Aviation Building ( very near,
    taxi fare less than RMB10).

    Aprroxi total time: 5 hours

    The first train leaves Xining at 07:46 and arrives at Lanzhou at 10:21; the first shuttle bus leaves Xining around 8:00am. If you flight leaves Lanzhou early in the morning, you’d better stay overnight in Lanzhou the day before.

    3. Personally, in your case, I prefer to rent a 22-seat coach for the direct transfer from Xining to Lanzhou Airport. Please contact the local travel agency for the coach rental from Xining to Lanzhou Airport.

    Approxi total time: 3 hours

    Have a good transfer!
