Transfer desk at Beijing Capital Airport terminal 3
Hi, does any of you know how far the transfer desk is from the arrival area at PEK T3 because we need to check-in again to get our boarding pass for us and our two children. I cant seem to see the transfer desk at any of the two maps above for arrival and departure.

Thank you.

The distance is not far. And it won't take long time. Upon landing, there are clear English signs at the airport that can help you find the directions easily.
