Ground transportation connections[edit]

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.[5]

It takes under 15 minutes for a D- or G-series train to travel from Zhengding Airport Station to Shijiazhuang Railway Station.[5]

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.[2][6]
