Kunming: transportation from west bus station to new airport

Hi,
I will be arriving tomorrow at 13:00 at the Kunming West bus station. I need to be at the new airport at 14:30 in order to get on my 15:55 flight to Guilin.

I think a private taxi from the bus station across town to the new airport will be very expensive. I just found out the bus station is on the other side of town from the airport!

Is there any mini-bus or public transportation I could take that will get me to the airport in time?

Thank you, I would ALS appreciate direct email replies in the interest of time.

I can't imagine doing anything but a taxi, with the tight time you have. And "very expensive" compared to what? Compared to local Chinese bus, of course. Compared to taxi rate at other Chinese cities, yeah that too. But even at 1.8RMB/km, and a 40km trip to airport, you are still only talking about US$20 even after all the fees, surcharge, and everything. Much less than what might be paying if you miss your flight.
