The Beijing Capital Airport is undoubtedly China's top air hub, with 98 international, 21 regional and 757 domestic air routes linking the capital with 54 cities ( excluding those in Taiwan Province) in 39 countries.More than 40 foreign airlines have set up booking offices in Beijing. See details in the Beijing Directory .
To and From Airport

If it is your first time to Beijing, the best bet is to have your hotel send a shuttle bus to come and get you. The other option is to take a taxi. But don't go with the guys who come up to you and say' Hello, taxi?' They are people with private cars and there is no guarantee as to how much they will charge or whether you will get to you intended destination. The way to go is out the front door to the taxi line. There is usually a bit of a long line, but it moves fairly quickly as there are more than enough taxis waiting there at all times of the day. These drivers are reliable and will charge according to the meter. Remember to have a Chinese version of the address you are going to. The other and probably cheapest option is for those who are fairly familiar with the city. There are two airport bus lines that leave every 30 minutes.
