History

The airline was established as a domestic carrier on July 25, 1984, primarily to connect the province of Fujian to the rest of China. As China's aviation sector developed the airline expanded to regional Asian destinations while the delivery of wide-body Boeing 787 Dreamliners permitted the airline to offer long-distance services. The airline's first inter-continental expansion was to Europe which commenced with an Amsterdam service from July 26, 2015.[5] Services to Sydney followed from November 30, 2015,[6] and Melbourne a year later. The airline's first North American service, to Vancouver was launched on July 26, 2016.[7] XiamenAir's first US service was to Seattle followed by Los Angeles and then New York. By early 2014, the airlines had set up bases at Fuzhou Changle International Airport, Nanchang Changbei International Airport, Hangzhou Xiaoshan International Airport, Tianjin Binhai International Airport, Changsha Huanghua International Airport and Beijing Capital International Airport.

XiamenAir was honoured with the title of "The Best Airline In Mainland China" for 19 consecutive quarters in the "Airlines Service Survey" made by CARNOC.com. The survey consists of comprehensive questionnaires answered by the passengers and analyzed by experts.

Xiamen Airlines concluded 2015 with passenger numbers of 22.77 million and a profit of 1800 million CNY. It was the 28th consecutive year of profit for the airline. By early 2016, the airline operated 230 domestic routes along with 60 international routes. Xiamen Air is also recognized as the operator of Fuzhou Changle International Airport's first direct North American route, which commenced in February 2017, to New York-JFK.
