About US > >
Founded in 1984 and headquartered in Xiamen City, Fujian Province, on the southeast coast of China, Xiamen Airlines was the first airline company to operate as a modern enterprise. After 33 years of progressive development, Xiamen Airlines has become the most featured airline company, praised by President Xi Jinping as “the Epitome of Chinese aviation industry development”.
Xiamen Airlines operates the largest all-Boeing fleet. By February 2017, the fleet was composed of 148 aircraft, and is one of the youngest fleets in the world. The Company operates 350 international and domestic routes, covering China and beyond with a network that extends throughout Southeast and Northeast Asia. As intercontinental routes from Melbourne, Vancouver and Seattle opened successively; Xiamen Airlines achieved full coverage across Europe, North America and Oceania, and extended its reach around the globe through its membership in the SkyTeam Alliance.
Xiamen Airlines has the longest continuous record of operating profit of any non-government-owned airline company, and is the only company to achieve 30 consecutive profitable years in China. Among financial ratings of global airline companies, Xiamen Airlines ranks first among Chinese companies. Xiamen Airlines boasts total assets of 40 billion RMB, net assets of 16 billion RMB, and an asset to debt ratio of 60%. Since 2009, the Company has achieved operating revenue of 90 billion RMB, with a 9.7 billion RMB profit. Among the 240 members of the International Air Transport Association, Xiamen Airlines profit ranks among the top 20, and the income to profit ratio ranks in the top 10.
For years, Xiamen Airlines has prioritized safety assurance and service improvement, which has helped Xiamen Airlines accumulate over 3.5 million safe flying hours and be named the “Best Airline Company” by Chinese passengers for three consecutive years from 2012 to 2015. On March 2016, Xiamen Airlines was honored with the second Chinese Quality Award, becoming the first service enterprise to obtain the honor, and the only airline company to win an award among Chinese civil airline companies.
In the future, by continuing our devotion to completing the mission of “Touching the heart of customers, offering opportunity to employees and paying back society”, Xiamen Airlines will spare no effort to transform and innovate, extend our air travel service chain, expand our customer group, construct our regional and hub network, and accelerate our intercontinental airline network coverage, to forge an international, networked and modernized airline group, which can provide customers with fabulous travel experiences. Through these initiatives, Xiamen Airlines will truly realize the goal of becoming a “featured company of first-choice for customers and first-class in the Asia-Pacific Region”.
