1 hour layover with Airchina in Beijing - is it enough?
We have booked for next year a trip Munich Bangkok with AirChina.
For the return flight we only have a 75 min layover in Beijing. As far as I understand both flights depart from the same terminal T3 but is it enough time to make it to the our flight back? Do we have to go through security check and customs again? Thank you!

75 minutes is a little tight for you to make the transfer. Hope the arrival flight won't be late. Here are the transfer procedures:
Flight Arrival → Transfer Procedures → Border Inspection →Customs Inspection → Going through Transfer Formalities → Waiting & Boarding.

I didn't find the specific location online and it may be at T3. You'd better call the hotel in advance for reservations.
