American Airlines Selected as Official Sponsor of 'Meet in Beijing'


American Airlines is proud to be one of only two corporate sponsors of the 2011 Meet in Beijing Arts Festival, an event that attracts world-class international performers and artists to Beijing. Held annually for the last 10 years, this year's festival runs from this week until the end of May, and spotlights how expressions of culture transcend beyond arts and entertainment, embracing friendship, education, and cultural diversity.

"Bringing the people and cultures of the world together is what air travel is all about," said Gerard Arpey, American's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "Like air travel, the arts lift our spirits, broaden our horizon and give us a fresh perspective on the world around us.

"I would like to congratulate and thank the Ministry of Culture of the People's Republic of China for making Meet in Beijing the biggest such festival in Asia," Arpey added. "We know this year's festival will be another great success."
