American Airlines to Move to Beijing Daxing International Airport

American Airlines Plans Move to Beijing Daxing International Airport in March 2021

American Airlines Group Inc. (NASDAQ: AAL) is moving flights to the biggest airport in the world: the new Beijing Daxing International Airport (PKX) when service returns from Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) on March 27, 2021. Flights will operate on a Boeing 787-8 and will be available for purchase on Monday, Oct. 12.

American Airlines’ Chief Revenue Officer, Vasu Raja, said:

“Moving to Daxing International Airport in Beijing when flights return in March is going to offer our customers access to a state-of-the-art airport, with ease of connections as we plan to codeshare with our strategic partner, China Southern. While there is so much uncertainty in travel right now, we want to be well positioned to serve our customers, shareholders and team members with the best service, convenience and products all over the world when they’re ready. Daxing is very much a part of that bright future.”

 

The relocation to PKX will offer tremendous benefits for customers. PKX offers incredible new facilities and services, and currently utilizes four runways, with the ambition to increase to seven in the future. And while the terminal spans 700,000 square meters, customers will never have to walk more than eight minutes to a gate.

Before flights were suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic, American and China Southern codeshared on flights beyond Beijing Capital International Airport (PEK) and Shanghai Pudong International Airport (PVG) and intend to codeshare on flights beyond PKX, which will bring enhanced benefits to the customer experience.

American is currently operating cargo flights to PEK, which will continue through the end of March. Customers booked on flights to PEK will be re-accommodated with optimal flight times for seamless connections at DFW.
