Best things to do and see in China

A flight to China is more likely to land at Beijing Capital Intl Airport (PEK), as it is one of the two international airports located in the Chinese capital city, Beijing. An estimate of a flight duration will depend on several factors, including your point of departure, arrival city, the airline of choice, and flight time. For example, if you board a flight from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), you will reach Beijing in about 12h 20min, around 13h 41min from Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, and about 12h 57min for a flight departing from Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD). You can also consider a popular US to China flight route from New York John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) to Shanghai Pudong International Airport (PVG), which would take approximately 14h 29min.

Yes, Air China is currently offering nonstop flights to Beijing. From Los Angeles Intl Airport (LAX), you can catch an overnight flight to Beijing Capital Intl Airport (PEK) and make it to Beijing nonstop.
