China's largest airport is also one of the second busiest in the world. Beijing Capital Airport is located approximately 30 km northeast of the city centre.
Due to the rapid development of civil aviation in China, a new airport, Beijing-Daxing PKX, was built south of the city and some flights were moved there.
However, Beijing Capital Airport remains the main international hub, with a huge number of domestic flights also departing from the airport.
Air China and Hainan Airlines are based at the airport.
