We are sorry to announce that the Kanas Airport (Code: KJI) seemly will not open until 10 June this year (last year it started to operate in mid May), according to the local tourism administration. The airport might be open in prior of the schedule, but no one can guarantee a specific date. Thus, we need to prepare the solutions for all staff and participants to arrive the race HQ.
The best alternative is to arrive in Altay Airport (code: AAT), which lies 240KM southeast to the race HQ.

The travel hours on bus is 6 hours approximately. And the timetable may subject to change depanding how many people confirm the booking.
Please notice that, since we planned Kanas airport as the arrival port, the entry fee covers the shuttle buses from Kanas airport to race HQ, which is 1 hour’s ride. However, as Altay airport is way far from Kanas, we have to charge 100 CNY per person to cover the transport service fee.
Once you have booked the flight, please fill your flight info into the same form so that we can arrange the bus and accommodations.
Jindu Hotel is one of the best hotel in the Altay area and the negotiated price for a dual-bed room is 248 CNY per night (book through us). Here’s the info:
