International Flights to Beijing | Helpful Beijing International Flights Arrival Guide and Tips
As one of the most popular destinations for both travel and business, Beijing can be arrived by flights from all around the globe. 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. The flight times are a bit longer if you fly to Beijing from US, ranging from 11 to 14 hours.
