There are lots of direct flights to Jiuzhaigou throughout the year but in winter the airport sometimes suspend its service due to bad weather like heavy snow or icy lanes.
At the airport there is no accommodations available, the nearest town is called Chuanzhusi where you can find many hotels and hostels to stay for overnight.

From the airport to Huanglong Scenic Area is about 1 hour by driving. At Huanglong there are some hotels available. The village of where the hotels are is a little bit further down the road of the entrance of Huanglong Park. Or you can drive directly to Jiuzhaigou Park for about 2 hours and stay there.

There are also airport shuttle buses available at the airport. The bus from airport to Jiuzhaigou costs about 45 yuan per person and to Huanglong costs about 22 yuan. These buses are not very reliable on both time and price. The buses were run by private company not the airport.
