Where is Beijing Airport? Beijing, capital of the world's most populous country, the People's Republic of China, has a history that goes back thousands of years.

Perhaps most notable was the Ming period, or Beijing's golden era. During this period, the Forbidden City and many other landmarks were built, and the city became the cultural and religious centre of Asia.

Beijing Capital International Airport (IATA: PEK, ICAO: ZBAA), or simply Beijing Capital Airport, in the Chaoyang district of Beijing, China. The airport's IATA code, PEK, comes from the capital city's former name, Peking.
