√ Lhasa Gongga Airport (拉萨贡嘎机场,IATA: LXA, ICAO: ZULS) is located in Jiazhulin Town, Gongga County, Shannan District, Tibet Autonomous Region. It is located on the south bank of the magnificent Yarlung Zangbo River at an altitude of 3,600 meters. It is one of the highest civil airports in the world. The Gongga Airport covers a relatively small area. There are relatively few flights to and from the country. Unlike many airports in the mainland there are several terminals and exits. There is only one entrance and one exit to the Gongga Airport Terminal, so you can rest assured that you will not lose yourself. As long as you arrive at Lhasa Gongga Airport, you must come out of that only exit.

√ The staff of Gongga Airport stopped the airport bus about five meters away from the exit of the terminal building. Everyone walked out of the airport terminal building exit, then you can see a small pavilion was set up about 3 meters from the wall on the left hand side, the ticket for the airport shuttle bus was sold here. The fare was RMB30. If you purchased the ticket, you can directly use the ticket to get on the airport shuttle bus. Here, the airport shuttle bus is checked in when you get on the bus. After checking the ticket before the boarding, it will not check the ticket again. The starting point of the Gongga Airport airport shuttle bus is the exit of the Gongga Airport Terminal. The end point is the Civil Aviation Authority at the foot of the east of Potala Palace.

√ If you take a taxi alone, RMB200 per one-way trip; if you take the taxi with other tourisms together, about RMB50/person.
