The Tianjin Binhai International Airport is growing rapidly with passenger numbers increasing well over 20% a year and the airport handles almost 10 million passengers a year. A major upgrade of the airport is underway which will increase the capacity to 40 million a year.
The Tianjin Airport is a hub for Air China, Okay Airways and Tianjin Airlines offering flights to 30 domestic destinations and a few international ones.
The Tianjin Binhai International Airport is located just 15 km east of the Tianjin city center and 120 km south of Beijing. A bullet train runs between Beijing and Tianjin so it may be cheaper and easier to take the train to Beijing and fly from there as Beijing Capital Airport has a lot more direct flights than Tianjin.
Taxis are available outside the arrival hall; expect to pay about RMB 100 to get to the Tianjin city center. Shuttle buses are available as well: there are four lines to different destinations in the city. Fare will be RMB 15 to 25.
