According to the 2010 report released by Airports Council International, Asian airports occupied all of the seats of world’s five best airports, among which Beijing Capital International Airport ranked the fourth place and Shanghai Pudong International Airport fifth. This shows China, initiated by the major airline hubs, has developed a very sophisticated air flight system in terms of either domestic travels or international connections. Three of the China’s leading airports, shown as below, ensure pleasures of China Flights on your China Tours

Beijing Capital International Airport is the principal airport of Beijing and the busiest civilian airport in China, and meanwhile, the headquarter of Air China. It once replaced Tokyo Haneda Airport as the busiest airport in Asian and listed among the four busiest airports in Asia, together with Hong Kong, Bangkok and Tokyo in 2004. The same year, the third terminal building started to be built and opened into use before Beijing 2008 Olympics after four years’ construction. It is the largest independent terminal building, as large as 170 soccer fields. Since then, Beijing Capital Airport became the first one nationwide with three terminal buildings, two control towers and three aerodrome runways in service coinstantaneously.

Beijing Capital International Airport is an important portal of entry for foreign exchanges, being the center of network of China Civil Aviation. At present, it has 98 domestic flights to 91 cities of the country and 101 international flights to 76 cities outside China. Compared with this crucial transportation hub in Northeast Asia, the other airport in Beijing, Nanyuan Airport is small. It is for both military and civilian use. There are domestic flights only, heading for some major cities like Hangzhou, Guangzhou, Haikou, Sanya, Chongqing, Changsha and some smaller place, such as Foshan, Linyi, Fuyang, Ordos, Baotou, Quzhou, Yulin, Lianyungang, Changzhou, Hailar and Manchuria.

There are two international airports in one city. This fact makes Shanghai outstanding as the largest city in China. Pudong International Airport play more important role. At present, it has three runways, two terminal buildings, 218 gate positions and 70 boarding walkways. It is affordable an annual passenger throughput of 60 million. There are averagely 700 flights of departure or arrival in one day, making up some 60 percent of Shanghai airports’ total flights amount. It includes the direct flights to New York by US Continental Airlines, Mexico by Mexicana Airlines, Zurich by Swiss International Airlines and Atlanta by Delta Airlines. Over 60 Chinese and overseas airlines set up business here. The flight network covers over 90 cities and regions outside China and more than 70 domestic cities.

15 airlines have scheduled flights to Hongqiao Airport, among which China Eastern Airlines, Shanghai Airlines and Spring Airlines are headquartered at this airport. It connects Shanghai with more than 60 cities in China and chartered flights to two cities in Japan and South Korea.

At the joint area of Renhe Town in Baiyun District and Xinhua Town in Huadu District, Guangzhou Baiyun Airport is about 28 kilometers from the central downtown of Guangzhou, Haizhu Square. It is one of the three air transportation hub in China. There are totally 123 scheduled flights, and 86 flights of them are domestic. Every day, there are more than five hundred flight taking off and landing. In the end of 2007, the annual passenger throughput in Guangzhou Airport reached 31 million, far beyond the expectation before the new airport was settled down in 2004. China Southern Airlines and Shenzhen Airlines choose the airport as their headquarters.

The airport is located in the center area of Asia-Pacific region. Major cities worldwide can be reached in 15 hours from Guangzhou. Its network covers South and Southeast Asian, being an important traffic hub to go to Vietnam, Laos, Burma, India, Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia. In addition, there are flights to Melbourne and Sydney of Australia, Paris, Los Angeles and Lagos of Nigerian, connecting flight to Amsterdam via Beijing and some flight to Tokyo, Osaka and Nagoya of Japan, Seoul of Korea, etc. China Southern Airlines has most domestic and international flights here.

Online Companies for Cheap Airplane Airfare

Flight booking for your international travel and domestic China Tours should be different if you want to save money.

Booking through an agent is advised due to its convenience and care-freeness but only if you do not mind paying the agency fee or sometimes ending up with less discount tickets.

If you have access to the Internet, you yourself can get cheap international air tickets or book discount China Flights without any difficulty and you do not need any agents.

For cheap international air tickets, I have five websites for you which are most recommended and shared among international travelers.

No.1 TravelZoo

Its website provides a search engine capable of providing airfares from several dozen airlines. Your fares are provided in a simplified single list format with purchase links to their related airline or travel website. You may select your ticket based on a variety of options such as airline, departure or arrival time, or prices.

No.2. Expedia

It is one of the largest travel search engine websites on the internet. As it will often purchase blocks of tickets from the major airlines, you may find the exact same ticket priced 20% to 40% cheaper than what is listed directly on the airlines website. Occasionally, I have found cheaper fares when booked with a hotel.

No.3 Priceline

It is best known for their more than famous spokesman, but if you have complete flexibility in your schedule, this website can be a great option. You can either search for the current priced ticket or bid your own price. I have found when bidding that airlines often will not go much more than 10% to 15% their lowest published fare and tickets must be purchased immediately.

No.4. Travelocity

Have a timeline in mind? Its flexible dates fare search option will show you future fares for select US and international markets. This will give you an idea of the best fares possible. From these ticket prices you can often determine the best time of year to visit a particular location.

No.5. Airfarewatchdog

This online travel company offers a unique approach to finding airfares based on the city you are leaving from or going to. After entering this information, the site will provide you with the lowest fares to or from your city of choice for both domestic and international routes. It will also provide information on advance purchase, airline, days of the week for travel, and seat availability.

However, after a Travel to Beijing, then you are planning another one to shanghai, Xi’an, or Lhasa, do not use Expedia, Travelocity, or Priceline to buy your plane tickets. Why? Because these or other foreign travel companies are much more expensive. Best discounts of domestic China flights are provided by local companies. It would be much wiser to book through them.

The most popular online companies among china domestic travelers are Elong, Ctrip, and Travelzen which can also be accessed from outside of China. You can refer to my blog “Cheap China Ticket—Domestic Air Tickets” for detailed introduction about them.

Cheap China Ticket—Domestic Air Tickets

When traveling by air between Chinese cities, do not use Expedia, Travelocity, or Orbitz to buy your plane tickets. Why? Because these or other foreign travel companies are much more expensive.

When traveling by air between Chinese cities, do not use Expedia, Travelocity, or Orbitz to buy your plane tickets. Why? Because these or other foreign travel companies are much more expensive. Best discounts of domestic China Flights are provided by local companies. It would be much wiser to book through them.

This article will introduce you some China travel companies you can resort to for cheap Chinese domestic air tickets.

There are many those online companies actually but Elong, Ctrip, and Travelzen are the most practical, reliable and can be accessed from outside of China.

Elong

ELong, Inc. (NASDAQ: LONG) is a leading online travel company in China. Headquartered in Beijing, ELong has a national presence across China, and uses web-based distribution technologies and a 24-hour call center to provide consumers with accurate travel information and high quality travel booking services.

Elong has become Expedia’s exclusive affiliate in Asia, working with Expedia’s branches across the globe to bring best travel experiences to customers.

It fulfills domestic and international air ticket reservations in over 80 major cities across China.

Ctrip

Ctrip is also China’s leading flight ticketing service, booking over 2 million tickets monthly with all Chinese and major international airlines.

Complimentary ticket delivery service is provided in over 60 cities throughout China, and Ctrip One Hour Express Ticketing—an industry first in China—provides reliable and fast e-ticketing service to members.

Some Chinese online booking sites don’t accept foreign credit cards, but Ctrip does.

Travelzen

Based in Shanghai, Travelzen uses state-of-the-art proprietary technology and SEBTI’s unparalleled resources to deliver the best possible availability and prices through an intuitive, real-time booking engine offering both domestic and outbound air tickets as well as hotel reservations for hundreds of Mainland Chinese cities including Hong Kong and Macau.

Qunar

Qunar(means “Where are you going?” in Chinese) is a Chinese search engine which can search prices from most travel (airline tickets, hotel) service providers’ websites based on your search query, and you can filter and then purchase such services by clicking the links in the search result. The price on its search result is probably the best price one can find on the Internet.

Many Chinese people just use it to buy domestic air tickets instead of the above three. 

However, the website is operated in the Chinese language. If you can read simple Chinese, it would be very helpful for you.

Chinese airlines use the same kind of dynamic pricing systems as airlines in the West, which means prices always seem to be changing in response to market conditions, especially on busy routes.

Therefore it is best to book your tickets for your China tours in advance, 2 months or so will typically guarantee you the best deals. If you wait until a week or two out, you may get a greater discount than you would booking in advance, but it will only be minor (eg,40% 2 months in advance, 50% a week in advance) and at the same time you risk paying full price or something very close to it.

Discount Air Travel in China

China is such a mystical land where the civilization dates back more than 6,000 years, and it is the source of the Four Great Inventions, and home to such wonders as the Great Wall of China, the Terracotta Warriors, and the Imperial Palace in Beijing.

You are planning a china travel and need advice for the air tickets. This article is written to help you with your discount China Flights.

Getting discount air tickets is very simple. As a matter of fact, there are many kinds of discounts offered by the airlines.

 Online-Booking Discount

Online airline tickets are deeply discounted because the airlines sell about 7-100 seats on each flight to contracted online vendors.

 Last-Minute Discount

Sometimes if you stand the suspense and just wait, you can buy tickets at the very last minute for a great price, if the airlines have failed to fill their planes. Many airlines offer weekly newsletters that feature their best last-minute deals. 

 Stand-By Discount

Getting cheap standby tickets is possible. But nowadays only a few air lines offer the service. Inquire about it if you’re flying off-season. High season is a bad time to fly standby because most airlines overbook flights, making it difficult to find a spare seat.

 Booking-In-Advance Discount

Booking in advance is recommended especially during peak travel periods, making reservations late in the game can cost you a lot of money. Airline ticket prices typically go up 21 days, 14 days, 7 days and 3 days before flying, so if you’re planning ahead, try to make the call before these deadlines. And if you’re traveling internationally, you’ll want to book even earlier — from three to six months in advance for the best deals.

 Book-through-Consolidator Discount

Buy tickets through consolidators, who buy blocks of tickets and sell them at a discount to help an airline fill up all available seats.

 Flexibility Discount

This can be further divided into three categories.

First, it is off-season discount. When booking your tickets, be flexible and try to avoid peak seasons and you can get off-season discount.

For example, try to avoid the peak domestic travel seasons, when the Chinese people travel. They are Chinese New Year, Labor Day, and National Day. The New Year occurs in January / February. The Labor Day and National Day dates vary, but are around May 1 and October 1. Hong Kong’s high season is October through December. Despite the heat and humidity, summer is the peak season for Beijing, Shanghai, and Guangzhou.

Hong Kong’s off seasons are summer and winter. Conventions and trade fairs, however, book the best hotels, particularly in March and April. Winter in Beijing and Shanghai is the off season, and hotels offer substantial discounts. The best time to search for cheap flights to China is autumn when the weather is gorgeous and there are few tourists.

 Secondly, it is date discount. Friday and Sunday are the most expensive days to travel while Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays are typically the cheapest days to fly on discount tickets.

 Thirdly, late-night flights, very early morning flights and flights with at least one stop tend to be discounted as well.

 Frequent –Flyer discount

If possible, stay with the same airline during your entire trip, so you can receive round-trip or other connecting fare discounts, such as frequent flier miles .Why pay a fare at all when you can use your frequent flier miles? Although redeeming miles has become more difficult in recent years, it’s still a good option to consider, particularly if you’re booking early; airlines designate a very limited number of seats on each flight as eligible for award travel, and these seats go quickly.

 In conclusion, good planning and a bit of flexibility can guarantee your discount airfares for your China Tours.

Budget Travel China

Budget Travel China China is such an amazing country. There is so much there that you want to experience and explore. However, you are thinking over and over about the budget.

Budget Travel China

China is such an amazing country. There is so much there that you want to experience and explore. However, you are thinking over and over about the budget. You rack your brain trying to figure out a way to enjoy yourself without breaking the bank. Don’t worry! Good planning and some tips do make it possible.

As a matter of fact, much of our money is probably spent on China Flights , China Hotels, Transportation and food. So we can save money in these aspects.

Airfares

Plan in advance and check discount websites to see if there are better deals.

Be flexible in scheduling your flight. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays are typically the cheapest days to fly; late-night flights, very early morning flights and flights with at least one stop tend to be discounted as well.

If possible, stay with the same airline during your entire trip, so you can receive round-trip or other connecting fare discounts, such as frequent flier miles.

Airlines now charge for excess luggage and if you have 2 bags or more, you are probably supposed to be charged for it. Remember not to use over sized bags whenever possible and try to keep it all within one bag per person.

Hotels

Location is very important. Hotel rates vary from place to place depending on its location. If there is not so much traffic inconvenience to be caused, give up those downtown ones.

 

You can telephone a hotel to ask specifically how far they are from your target tourist attractions. A more accurate way of doing this however would be to use Google Earth or other online mapping system, which will allow you to identify the exact location of the hotel. It will also allow you to identify exactly how far it is from certain other locations, and even print out a map to show you how to reach those locations.This might all seem a little petty, but think about the $10 to $15 you can save a night on your hotel trip.

You don’t always need famous or 5-star hotels, and sometimes inns or B&Bs (bed and breakfast) can also be comfortable while less expensive.

Most front desk personnel are personable and can give good advice on getting better rates at their hotels. Negotiate with them to get good discounts for your stay.

Travel agents have good contacts among hotel chains and can get discounts on reservations thus made. If you choose to have a travel agent help you get a good hotel, then make sure that the service fee you pay them does not make going through an agent more expensive then making the reservation yourself.

Transportation

If possible, avoid taxis and welcome public transportation. Use the subway or buses because it’s sometimes easier and it is much cheaper. By the way, if you are in Beijing, the best way is to take subways, not only because it’s very cheap and convenient but also because if your take buses or taxis, you may get stuck in the road for a long time due to the traffic jams.

Rent a car and drive it yourself can be a good idea.

Food

Avoid breakfast from the hotels. Chances are good that the breakfast from the hotel is expensive and isn’t great. It probably pays to walk out the front door in the morning and find a local cafe. You might just stumble onto the local favorite.

Eat more at lunch than dinners. Fancy lunches are often much less expensive than dinners. If you eat a big breakfast, lunch and a light dinner, it’s also healthier.

Go to the grocery store. Things in the hotels are generally much more expensive than they should be. When you have your hotel checked in, the next step should be looking for a super market or grocery stores. It’s worth it to take a trip there and get snacks, water, and everything you need for your trip.

All these are not just for money. Economization is an attitude towards life. We do not want to give the money which comes from our hard work away just on unnecessary stuffs. Or we do want to take a vocation ending up with an empty wallet.

The 2010 is going to an end, and plan a budget China travel to get relaxed and award yourself for the hard work of the whole year.

Low Fare Air Travel in China

China is one of the hottest tourist destinations in the world. To have a travel to Beijing or a travel to Shanghai is always a good choice to spend your vacationTrain travel does have its merits. However, it takes more time. High speed is the strongest advantage of air travel, but the cost can be relatively high, too.

Is low fare air travel in China possible? Of course! It is no big deal and does not involve any magic or luck. It is just a matter of planning and flexibility.

No .1 Buy Early VS Buy Late

Early buying is recommended especially during peak travel periods, making reservations late in the game can cost you a lot of money. Airline ticket prices typically go up 21 days, 14 days, 7 days and 3 days before flying, so if you’re planning ahead, try to make the call before these deadlines. And if you’re traveling internationally, you’ll want to book even earlier — from three to six months in advance for the best deals.

However, everything is relative and nothing is absolute. Sometimes if you stand the suspense and just wait, you can buy tickets at the very last minute for a great price, if the airlines have failed to fill their planes. Many airlines offer weekly newsletters that feature their best last-minute deals.

No. 2 Standby Fares

Getting cheap standby tickets is possible. But nowadays only a few air lines offer the service. Inquire about it if you’re flying off-season. High season is a bad time to fly standby because most airlines overbook flights, making it difficult to find a spare seat.

No 3 Frequent Flier Miles

If possible, stay with the same airline during your entire trip, so you can receive round-trip or other connecting fare discounts, such as frequent flier miles .Why pay a fare at all when you can use your frequent flier miles? Although redeeming miles has become more difficult in recent years, it’s still a good option to consider, particularly if you’re booking early; airlines designate a very limited number of seats on each flight as eligible for award travel, and these seats go quickly.

No 4 Travel Packages

Ask the airline if it offers travel packages to save money in other areas. For instance, is a rental car or hotel room available at a discount along with the airline ticket?

No.5 Be Flexible

Be flexible in scheduling your flight. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays are typically the cheapest days to fly; late-night flights, very early morning flights and flights with at least one stop tend to be discounted as well.

No 6 Shop Around

No matter how good it sounds, you should never book the first fare you see. Because only after comparing with others can you find out whether the stated fare is the cheapest. Always inquire about other options when speaking to the airline reservations clerk and if the internet is available, check more than one web site. If you don’t see anything in your preferred price range, don’t be afraid to bide your time and watch the fares for a bit. Most major booking sites have alert features that will e-mail you when your fare drops to a price you’re willing to pay.

No 7 Buy through Consolidators

Buy tickets through consolidators, who buy blocks of tickets and sell them at a discount to help an airline fill up all available seats.

By following those tips of course you can enjoy low fare air travel in China, but sometimes you are simply in such a hurry, or busy with other parts of your trip or want more time to enjoy yourself that you can not afford or do not want to waste the time in those planning and comparing, you can just pick up a China travel agent that you can trust and let it do everything for you.

The international tickets to China have risen up to a high level this year, partly because of the Shanghai Expo. But the root for this expensive air tickets is the rare competition among airlines to operate international flights. For example, the flights between Canada and China are mainly operated byAir China, China Eastern Airlines and Air Canada. Especially, for some direct flights from some Canadian cities to major cities in China, there are only Air Canada flights. But all of these will be changed in this month. Hainan Airlines, which is the only 4-star airlines in China, will open several direct lines for international flights this month.
