Almost all international flights to and from Shanghai operate through Pudong International Airport (PVG). Hongqiao International Airport (SHA) acts as the domestic flight hub and also serves some international flights. Pudong Airport is about an hour outside the city center (People's Square), roughly an RMB 160 (USD 26) cab ride during the daytime. The fastest train in the world, the German-built Maglev, whisks passengers from the airport to the Longyang Road Station on Metro Line 2 (still in Pudong, the east side of Shanghai) in under six minutes. You'll need to take an additional subway or cab ride to reach your final destination.
The city is also well connected by rail from Shanghai Station, Shanghai South Train Station and Hongqiao Railway Station, Shanghai’s bullet train hub.
