          THE HUB
          Beijing Capital Airport: Is the second busiest in the world with a whopping 86 million passengers going through here annually. That’s about 13 million more than London Heathrow in third place (and 10 million behind Atlanta at the top of the list). Air China operates out of Terminal 3 which is modern and was built for the 2008 Beijing Olympics. The terminal has a massive retail area which when combined with the foodcourt, is larger than Auckland’s Albany Mall and Christchurch’s Riccarton Mall. The foodcourt alone has 72 different eateries. WiFi is available throughout. Connecting through the airport is sometimes tricky as the signage can be confusing, and people often end up in the wrong queue. Avoid this by frequently checking you’re in the right place with the staff members who manage the queues. Delayed flights are common across China, and frustrated passengers often take it out on stressed staff, however if you’re a typical friendly Kiwi, it’ll go along way. It should also be noted that security at Chinese airports is tight, and it’s normal that you’ll be asked to show your passports/tickets two or three times, even if just transferring. If stopping over, New Zealanders are allowed 72 hours in Beijing without having to apply for a visa.
