Beijing International Airport (known locally
as Capital Airport) is 17 mi/27 km northeast of the city center.
Beijing Capital Airport is the busiest airport in China. Thanks
to the opening of the new wing on November 1, 1999, you no longer have
to fight for a space in the endless queue to check in.
There are 34 international airlines which connect
Beijing with 25 countries as well as 32 cities. There are also 64 domestic
airlines and 5 inter-regional airlines connecting Beijing to all major
airports inside China.
