American Airlines will shift operations to Beijing Daxing International Airport in March 2021

                                                  American Airlines Group 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.

“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,” said Vasu Raja, American’s Chief Revenue Officer. “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.”

Beijing's new Daxing International airport opens

Costing more than £50 billion and as big as 98 football pitches, the brand new Daxing International airport has finally opened for business with its first commercial flights taking off today.

The airport was opened by China's President Xi Jinping on Wednesday and is set to become one of the busiest airports in the country. Estimates indicate it will be handling up to 72 million passengers a year by 2025, eventually reaching 100 million designed by architect Zaha Hadid and many have called it a giant starfish, although according to local media it is supposed to be a 'phoenix'.
