Delta Air Lines relocating to new Beijing airport

Delta Air Lines has confirmed it will shift its Beijing flights from Capital Airport to the new multi-billion dollar Daxing Airport from March 2020.

Delta becomes the first American carrier to move to Daxing.

The airline said the relocation will help ensure smooth connections with its Skyteam partner China Eastern Airlines which is moving the bulk of its services to Daxing by the first quarter of 2020.

Delta bought a 3.5% stake in its Chinese partner for US$450 million in 2015.

When the integration is complete Delta customers will have access to 30 domestic destinations on China Eastern-operated flights.

China Eastern's new lounges at Daxing Airport will be available to Delta One customers and SkyMiles Diamond, Platinum and Gold Medallion members.

"The brand new Daxing International Airport will provide a great opportunity to better serve the growing needs of our customers in China. As Delta operates in the new mega airport, working with China Eastern side by side, customers will enjoy the improved departure and arrival times," said Wong Hong, Delta president for Greater China and Singapore.

Delta serves Beijing from Detroit and Seattle.
