Transfer between terminals

Terminal 1 and 2 are close to each other, whilst Terminal 3 is located away from the other two (about 5 km). It is important to keep in mind this information if passengers need to go from one terminal to another since it can take some time.

Distances between Beijing’s Terminals are large. It is strongly recommended to have enough time to go from one terminal to another.

To transfer between Beijing Airport Terminals, passengers have at their disposal inter-terminal shuttles that run between terminals from 06:00 am to 11:00 pm, every 10 minutes, and also between 11:00 pm and 06:00 am every 15-30 minutes.
