Capital Airport or the Capital Airport
London Airport, Heathrow Airport etc. these airport names are used without 'the'. But in one of China's provincial college entrance examination paper, the given answer to one question is that we should use 'the' before the airport name of 'Capital Airport'.
(In Beijing there is an airport whose proper name is (the?) Capital Airport. )
How would you native speakers say the airport's name if you were in a situation like this? Thank you in advance.

Reason: a sentence changed
Re: Capital Airport or the Capital Airport
As far as I know, the article 'the' is used in certain special nouns but airport is not one of them eg. the Himalayas, the Amazon River, the Pyramids of Egypt, etc.
So, there shouldn't be a 'the' in front of the name the the airport.
