Beijing Airport has three terminal known as T1, T2, and T3. T3 is the largest and newest and you may have to ride a shuttle train within the terminal. Chinese persons also refer to the terminals as T1, T2, and T3 in English. Currency exchange is available at the terminals, however, a service fee is imposed which usually lowers your conversion by 3% or so. Away from the airport, Chinese Banks generally do not charge a service fee.


Transportation Between Terminals

To transfer between terminals, you must exit your terminal and ride a free shuttle bus between terminals. Shuttle Bus is faster than a taxi or train between T3 and T2. Do not attempt to walk between terminals.

Passengers going to T2 or T1: free shuttle bus outside Gate 5 on Floor 1 (F1) of T3. This bus takes approximately 10 minutes. You may use the “Apple” elevator to reach the first floor.

Passengers going to T3: free shuttle bus outside Gate 7 on Floor 1 (F1) of T2, or outside Gate 7 on Floor 1 (F1) of T1.


Transportation Between Airport and Central Beijing

Airport Express Train:

At Sanyuanqiao Station you may pick up Subway Line 10. Dongzhimen Subway Station lies just outside the NE edge of the 2nd Ring Road and you may pick up Subway Line 2 or Line 13; many local buses stop outside the station along Dongzhimen Outer Street and there is also a long distance bus station there.
