Xi'an Xianyang Airport Passenger Reviews and Traveller Reports
Xi'an Xianyang Airport customer review : 28 November 2012 by Peter Thackray (UK)|
Rating : 7/10
Domestic flight to Chengdu. Check-In OK and Security quick. Interestingly no need to remove laptops or
belts for scanning but 100ml fluid requirement enforced. Airside a new "wing" has been built and some gates
are quite a walk from the Security Check Area. Very difficult to find Departure Gate information once airside,
no screens as you enter and despite lots of TV screens with advertising, very few with the actual flight
information. Reasonable signs showing which direction each gate is. A reasonable selection of typical airport
shops offering the usual variety of gifts, alcohol, cigarettes and snacks. Overall airport clean and tidy.

Went through there domestically June 10 and June 12. Everything seemed
to work, the airside men's rooms left something to be desired. All else
worked including the air-conditioning.

I've been though both international and domestic terminals. The ground staff are very
efficient, I have to say. It looks like the ground handing agents are China Eastern Airline and
Xianyang airport. However, there is one thing I don't really like which is, the VIP lounges are on
the other side of the main terminal. Last time when I was travelling from XIY to AKL, I went to the
on the VIP lounge, it was very inconvenient. What I mean is you can't check your bags in at VIP
lounges, and staffs in VIP lounge are not friendly at all, I hope this is not a Chinese thing.

The new airport is very clean and very efficient, though a bit oversized and dull. They even have
something of a tax-free section. The prices are quite high though. Overall, a pleasant airport to
spare some hours.

I travelled through Xian Airport on a 2 day side trip from Beijing from 11th to 13th March. The
airport is new and impressive.
I've travelled through about 40 airports worldwide, and after quickly retrieving my bag from the
luggage carousel, the staff at Xian Airport were the first to check my receipt against the baggage
tag. I'm not sure whether this is down to their efficiency, or to the fact that the wrong bags have
been taken in the past. Whatever the reason, it was reassuring. I wish other airports would be as
There are numerous shuttle buses into the city available from the Arrivals area, but I shared a taxi
with a very hard bargaining Chinese lady who beat the taxi driver down to 100 yuan. (I'd expected to
have to pay more than that on my own). I used the same taxi driver for the return trip at a
previously agreed price of 80 yuan.
The Departures Area is modern and clean. There's a reasonable restaurant and a few shops before
security, and some more shops airside.
PA announcements are in Mandarin and English and are clear and frequent.
It was a pleasure to travel through Xian Airport.
