Ground transportation connections
The Beijing–Guangzhou–Shenzhen–Hong Kong High-Speed Railway passes within about 3 km south of the airport's terminal. A few trains a day stop at Zhengding Airport Railway Station, providing convenient service to Shijiazhuang Railway Station and a few other key stations in the Beijing/Hebei/Henan/Shanxi region.
Shijiazhuang Airport Authority views the railway as an important tool to attract passengers to the airport not just from Shijiazhuang, but from the wider region as well. They have announced a program providing air passengers flying to Shijiazhuang with free train tickets to station such as Beijing West and Zhenghzou; passengers arriving to the airport by train and leaving by plane can have the cost of their train tickets reimbursed as well.
