Currently, only the Capital International Airport (IATA:PEK) serves for international flights. It is located at Jichang West Rd, Chaoyang District, Beijing (北京朝阳区机场西路), about 28km (11mi) from Beijing downtown. Airlines from more than 55 foreign countries dock at PEK, and transport travelers to Beijing from almost all the capital cities and other important cities in the world, which make PECK the world's second busiest airport. The airlines of Europe and North America also offer direct nonstop flights to Beijing. Flights usually leave from Europe in the afternoon, and arrive at PEK in the morning.

Beijing Capital International Airport Transportation

Beijing Capital International Airport provides a fully connecting transportation system that allows passengers to transfer to Beijing downtown and nearby places.

How to Get to Beijing Downtown

Beijing Capital Airport is 25.35 km away from Tiananmen Square, the center of Beijing. The most efficient way to get to downtown is taxi. You can easily find taxis queuing up outside the arrival halls of T1, T2, T3. But only take the legal taxis which have licenses. It takes about 30~60mins to get to the city center area of Beijing by taxi, and costs around CNY 80~120. Taking Airport Express (subway) is another good option, but it only has two stops in downtown – Dongzhimen (东直门) and Sanyuanqiao (三元桥). Shuttle buses are also available, with many different districts, commercial centers and railway stations of Beijing.
