Connection at PEK (Beijing)

Hi,

is a layover in Beijing ok?
Route would be CDG-PEK-SHA, and XIY-PEK-CDG.
Do we have to pick up the luggage and check in once again at PEK?
Also, is a 2-hour connection sufficient?
Airline is Air China all the way
I am a bit worried about congestion at PEK, I heard there are many delays...
Thanks

On your first leg, your luggage should be checked through so 2 hours would work if your flight is on time. Do not exit to the main hall, from the luggage carrousel area, there is an access gate to the domestic gates.
On the way back, you could not do this in 2 hours.

On the way back, would a 3-hour layover be ok?

If your flight is on time, yes even if your luggage is not checked through. But personally, I never risk taking a domestic flight in China to connect to an international flight.
