About:Transfer in T3 of Beijing Capital Airport

Arrival from Chicago on United to Beijing Capital Airport.

And departure to Xi'an on Air China on separate ticket.
We arrive in PEK at 15:15 on United airlines from Chicago. We have a separate ticket on Air China to Xi'an with departure at 17:15. We are not checking bags and hope to print our boarding passes for the Air China flight before boarding in Chicago. Will 2 hours be enough time to go through customs and get to the departure gate?

Jane, you will have an international to domestic transfer both at T3, and 2 hours may be a little tight for you to go through a series of produces. The specific procedures are as following:
Inspection & Quarantine – Border Inspection– Customs Inspection – Going through Transfer Formalities – Security Check – Waiting & Boarding
So you need to pay attention to your time if you don't want to rebook another flight.
