The sole International Airport serving the Capital of China, Beijing, is Capital Airport. Beijing Capital International Airport is located to the North-East of the central City in Shunyi District of Beijing. 
Shunyi is one of the six outer suburbs of the City and is connected to the central City by means of the Airport expressway, which is a Toll Road, and, since the opening of Terminal 3 in 2007, is connected via light rail - the airport express train- to the Beijing Subway System.

For most International visitors and may Chinese, the first sight they have of Beijing is the sight of Beijing Capital Airport. The Airport is thus a showcase for the modern city.

Capital Airport has currently 114 International Airlines, 136 Domestic airlines and an annual passenger handling capacity of over 75 million persons. Cargo handling capacity exceeds 1 million tons and keeps rising every year.
