Beijing Capital International Airport is the main international airport serving Beijing. It is located 32 km northeast of Beijing's city center, across Chaoyang District and suburban Shunyi District. The airport is owned and operated by state-controlled Beijing Capital International Airport Company Limited. Its IATA Airport code, PEK, is based on the city's former romanized name, Peking.

PEK currently covers 1480 hectares of land, including 3 terminals and 3 runways. It is the main hub for Air China, the flag carrier of the People's Republic of China, which flies to around 120 destinations (excluding cargo) from Beijing. China Southern Airlines, China Eastern Airlines, and Hainan Airlines also use the airport as their hub.

The airport added Terminal 3 in 2008 in time for the 2008 Summer Olympic Games, the second largest airport terminal in the world after Dubai International Airport's Terminal 3. 

Beijing Capital has rapidly risen in rankings of the world's busiest airports in the past decade. It had become the busiest airport in Asia in terms of passenger and total traffic movements by 2009. It has been the world's second busiest airport in terms of passenger traffic since 2010. The airport registered 557,167 aircraft take-offs and landings, ranking 6th in the world in 2012. In terms of cargo traffic, Beijing Capital has also witnessed rapid growth. By 2012, the airport had become the 13th busiest airport in the world by cargo traffic, registering 1,787,027 tonnes.
