American Airlines to Launch New Service from Dallas/Fort Worth to Beijing

FORT WORTH, Texas – American Airlines has filed an application with the U.S. Department of Transportation for the right to operate new service from Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) to Beijing Capital International Airport (PEK) beginning next summer. Once approved, the new route will be the first nonstop flight connecting Beijing and Dallas/Fort Worth.

**By adding this new Beijing service, American will achieve a significant milestone in the development of its Asian network by offering nonstop service from Dallas/Fort Worth to five key markets in Asia – Beijing, Hong Kong, Seoul, Shanghai and Tokyo,** said Andrew Nocella, chief marketing officer – American Airlines. **The pending addition of Beijing and recent additions of Shanghai and Hong Kong elevate Dallas/Fort Worth to one of the primary connecting hubs between Asia and destinations within the U.S. as well as Mexico, Central and South America.**

The new service between Dallas/Fort Worth and Beijing will be operated with a Boeing 777-200ER aircraft. American is retrofitting its entire fleet of 777-200ERs to include fully lie-flat Business Class seats, all with aisle access; new seats in the Main Cabin; in-seat entertainment; and international Wi-Fi capability. The new fully lie-flat Business Class seats on American*s 777-200ERs offer customers the largest space of any 777 Business Class seat offered by any U.S. carrier.

The new flight from DFW will also complement American*s existing service from Chicago to Beijing and will be American*s 11th route between the U.S. and Asia. Since 2013, American has added new nonstop flights connecting Hong Kong, Seoul and Shanghai to DFW, reinforcing the airline*s commitment to expanding and strengthening its presence in the Asia-Pacific region.

**Today*s news is great for Dallas/Fort Worth area residents who will have direct access to China*s capital city for the first time,** said Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price. **This new route will connect our great Metroplex to a very important destination in Asia and will play a key role in further strengthening ties between our region and Asia.**

**The trans-Pacific market is critical for business across the state of Texas and this new service is a direct conduit to open new opportunities for trade and tourism in our region,** said Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings. **This new route represents a huge opportunity for significant economic impact for our region by connecting DFW directly to Beijing.**

**We are thrilled with today*s news and this new route connecting Dallas/Fort Worth to Beijing is a huge milestone for the region and for DFW Airport,** said Sean Donohue, CEO of DFW International Airport. **With this new route, American will offer travelers six daily flights to Asia from DFW Airport, which is American*s prime point of entry for Asian customers into the United States and Latin America.**
