Earliest flight after arriving in Chongqing?
Hi, we arrive on Century Paragon in Chongqing around 830 am.
I understand the airport is a 40 min taxi ride away.
Would a flight at 11:25 am be a good choice?
Are the boats ever late arriving?
How long does it take to get off the boat and get into a taxi?
Thank you :)

Hi Mark,

Thanks for your question! If there is no traffic jam, you can catch the domestic flights at 11:25, but not available for international flights. The traffic in Chongqing is a little bit complex. To leave yourself enough time to catch your flight, you are more suggested to take the flights departing after 12:00. Century Paragon generally arrives on time, rarely late. Getting off the boat and to the street where you can ask a taxi takes about 8-15 minutes. However, it may waste you a lot of time to ask a taxi there, because it is hard to find a taxi near Chaotianmen Port.
If you have already booked the flight departing at 11:25, you are better to reschedule your ticket. And if you do not want to spend much time to wait for a taxi at the port, you can book our private car service traveling from the port to Jiangbei International Airport directly. Our local guide will await you at the port and drive you to the airport upon your arrival. If you are interested, please feel free to contact us.
Travel from Viking Emerald to Airport for flight to Chengdu
We would like to depart the Viking Emerald independently from the cruise company
We could fly very late on 23rd or on 24th April 2017
How long will it take from the river port where she ship docks to the airport?
2017-12-26 13:33
Hello Michele,

Thank you for the question. Do you mean you would fly on 23rd or on 24th April in 2018? But, as the sailing calendar we received from the Century Cruises Company, there would be no cruise of Emerald in April in 2018, so may I know where you get the information? As there are two port cities for the Yangtze River cruises, namely Chongqing and Yichang, if you want to depart from Chongqing Chaotianmen Port after your upstream cruise, you could take a local taxi to Chongqing Jiangbei Airport for about 40-60 minutes, and if you are going to take a downstream cruise and stop in Yichang Taohuacun Port, you could get to Yichang Sanxia Airport for about 40-80 minutes by local taxi.

Have a nice day!
