American Airlines plans move to Beijing Daxing International Airport in March 2021

American Airlines Group Inc. 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 Dreamliner and will be available for purchase on Monday, Oct. 12.

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.
