Nanyang enjoys a predominant geographic location with convenient transportation and advanced communication. The Jiaozuo–Zhicheng Railway stretches from south to north, and the Nanjing–Xi'an Railway crosses from east to west. A new pattern of urban and rural integration development with rational division and functional complementation has formed by taking Dengzhou, Tongbai, Xixia and Xichuan as four bases, relying on small towns and improving modern three–dimensional transportation systems covering highways, railways and aviation.

After the Nanjing–Xi'an Railway was put into use, Nanyang was determined as a national highway transportation hub by the Ministry of Transportation. Nanyang Airport is one of the three biggest civil airports in Henan. There are direct flights from Henan to Guangzhou, Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen and Guilin.
