Transfer from the Airport to Hotels
All flights arrive at Beijing Capital International Airport, which is 30 kilometers from town and is served by major international airline companies. Airport shuttle buses connect the airport to different parts of
downtown Beijing, including China National Convention Center. But the most convenient way is to take a taxi at the taxi station and the cost is around 100 Chinese yuan (US$ 17.00).

By Airport Shuttle Bus
It's convenient to take an Airport Shuttle Bus to the conference site if you travel light. Please select Route 6, which runs from Beijing Capital International Airport, first stop, to Shangdi Holiday Inn Express, the terminal of route 6, and get off at Aoyuncun (Olympic Games Village, the last but two stop) by a 24 yuan ticket. The stop is about 10 minutes’ drive to CNCC. It’s recommended to take a taxi here to CNCC, costing about 13 yuan. The earliest bus from Airport leaves at 08:30 and the last one departures at 21:30.

By Taxi
The total cost is around 100 Chinese yuan, including the expressway fee. The total time is around 30 minutes. If encountering a heavy traffic, the cost may be higher. Also the time spent may be longer. Although there is an airport subway to town, it costs much more than the shuttle and needs two underground transfers around 20-minutes' walk, which is not recommended.
