Passengers on flights to Shanghai that originate in airports outside China normally land in Pudong International Airport (IATA code: PVG), the main base for China Eastern Airlines and Shanghai Airlines and main international hub of Air China and China Southern Airlines in the country. Besides, while the great majority of regional and domestic flights are handled by Shanghai Hongqiao airport, Pudong is both the starting and ending point for hundreds of intercontinental routes managed by international carriers, and both airports are connected to each other by the Shanghai metro line 2, the Maglev train and airport buses that in turn link the two passenger terminals of PVG with different points of interest throughout the city.
If you are travelling to China to attend an exhibition or event at the SNIEC -Shanghai New International Expo Centre-, situated 33 kilometers away from Pudong airport, know that it just takes a smooth commute by taxi, metro (you will need to change trains only once), airport bus line 3 or Transrapid Maglev to reach the venue from the passenger terminals. In view of this, and provided that your stay in the city will be a short one, it is safe to say that staying in one of the recommended hotels near Pudong International airport in Shanghai listed below is highly convenient. Likewise, in the event of having a layover here before resuming your journey to another destination in China or abroad, sleeping close to Shanghai Pudong airport will reduce the last-minute hassle that frequently arises during long-haul trips and will guarantee that you do not miss your outbound flight.
