History[edit]

Air China
China

at Zürich Airport (1992)

Air China
China
was established and commenced operations on 1 July 1988 as a result of the Chinese government's decision in late 1987 to split the operating divisions of Civil Aviation Administration of China
China
(CAAC) into six separate airlines: Air China, China
China
Eastern, China
China
Southern, China
China
Northern, China
China
Southwest, and China
China
Northwest.[4] Air China
China
was given chief responsibility for intercontinental flights and took over the CAAC's long haul aircraft ( Boeing
Boeing
747s, 767s, and 707s) and routes. In January 2001, the former CAAC's ten airlines agreed on a merger plan,[5] according to which Air China
China
was to acquire China
China
Southwest Airlines. Before this acquisition, Air China
China
was the country's fourth largest domestic airline. The merger created a group with assets of 56 billion Yuan (USD $8.63 billion), and a fleet of 118 aircraft.[6] In October 2002, Air China
China
consolidated with the China
China
National Aviation Holding and China
China
Southwest Airlines.[7] On 15 December 2004, Air China
China
was successfully listed on the Hong Kong and London
London
Stock Exchanges. In 2006, Air China

signed an agreement to join the Star Alliance. It became a member of the alliance on 12 December 2007 alongside Shanghai
Shanghai
Airlines. In July 2009, Air China

acquired $19.3 million of shares from its troubled subsidiary Air Macau, lifting its stake in the carrier from 51% to 80.9%.[8] One month later, Air China
China
spent HK$6.3 billion (USD $813 million) to raise its stake in Cathay Pacific
Cathay Pacific
from 17.5% to 30%, expanding its presence in Hong Kong.[9] In April 2010, Air China
China
completed the increase of shareholdings in Shenzhen Airlines
Shenzhen Airlines
and became the controlling shareholder of Shenzhen Airlines, allowing Air China
China
to further enhance its position in Beijing, Chengdu, and Shanghai
Shanghai
as well as achieve a more balanced domestic network.[10] On 2 December 2010, Air China
China
received Spain's highest tourism industry award, the "Plaque for Tourist Merit." Air China
China
was the first foreign airline to receive the award, which is given to organisations and individuals contributing to the Spanish tourism industry.[11] On 23 December 2010, Air China
China
became the first Chinese airline to offer combined tickets that include domestic flights and shuttle bus services to nearby cities. The first combined flight-shuttle bus ticket connected Tianjin
Tianjin
via shuttle bus with domestic flights passing through Beijing.[12] Air China
China
began offering Wi-Fi internet service on board its aircraft on 15 November 2011, making it the first Chinese carrier to offer this service.[13] In 2012, after pressure from PETA, Air China
China
stated that it would no longer transport monkeys to laboratories. PETA
PETA
welcomed the airline’s announcement.[14] On July 3, 2013 in time for the company's 25th anniversary, Air China successfully tested Wireless LAN
Wireless LAN
in flight. It was the first global satellite Internet flight in Mainland China.[15] In early 2015 it was announced that the airline had selected the Boeing
Boeing
737 Next Generation and 737 MAX for its fleet renewal programme of 60 aircraft. The deal, with a value of over $6 billion at current list prices, has yet to be finalised.[16] Corporate affairs[edit]

to the Middle East, Western Europe, and North America
North America
from its hubs at Beijing
Beijing
Capital International Airport and Chengdu
Chengdu
Shuangliu International Airport.[21] It also currently reaches a significant number of Asian, Australian and European destinations from Shanghai. Some international routes operate from Chengdu, Chongqing, Dalian, Hangzhou, Kunming
Kunming
and Xiamen. It is one of the few world airlines that fly to all six inhabitable continents. On 10 December 2006, Air China
China
began serving its first South American destination, São Paulo-Guarulhos (via Madrid-Barajas). This was the airline's longest direct flight.[citation needed] The service was initiated with a Boeing
Boeing
767-300ER, but due to increased demand, the service has been upgraded to an Airbus
Airbus
A330-200. Regular flights between Mainland China
China
(PRC) and Taiwan
Taiwan
(ROC) started in July 2009. Due to the political status of Taiwan, all Air China airframes that operate flights to and from Taiwan

are required to cover the flag of the People's Republic of China

Airbus
A320s, A330s, A340s, Boeing

China
introduced its new Airbus
Airbus
A330-300
A330-300
to long-haul operations beginning with services to Düsseldorf, Germany
Germany
in summer 2011. These aircraft provided the same two-class cabin standard as the Airbus A330-200 except that the economy cabin had no seat-back entertainment system installed (with the exception of the first two economy rows which also had increased legroom). Düsseldorf
Düsseldorf
is now the third German destination on the Air China
China
network. The airline launched a new Beijing-Milan-Malpensa service on 15 June 2011, complementing the airline's existing service to Milan from Shanghai. Deliveries of the carrier's 19 new Boeing
Boeing
777-300ERs commenced in mid-2011, with the aircraft forming the new "backbone of its future longhaul operations." The new Boeing
Boeing
777-300ERs replaced the Boeing 747–400s on routes to U.S. destinations such as Los Angeles, New York, and San Francisco, but was expected to first enter service on flights to Paris from March 2012. The Boeing
Boeing
777-300ER began to replace most 747 service once sufficient numbers entered the fleet.[22] Air China
China
expanded its operations in India with a Beijing-Mumbai route begun in September 2011, while the existing Delhi route was upgraded to the A330.[23] The airline also launched service to Mumbai from Chengdu
Chengdu
on 2 May 2012.[24] The airline began using the Boeing
Boeing
777-300ER on one of its two daily Beijing- Los Angeles
Los Angeles
flights on 1 February 2012.[25] Beginning in late-2012 to early 2013, the airline will replace the Boeing
Boeing
747-400s currently servicing the New York and San Francisco
San Francisco
routes with the Boeing
Boeing
777-300ER.[26] With the addition of the Boeing
Boeing
777-300ERs on the US routes, Air China increased frequency on the Beijing-New York route, changing the flights from 7 to 11 flights a week by adding two new flights to the route (CA989/990).[27] On 21 January 2014, the airline launched its service to Hawaii with flights from Beijing
Beijing
to Honolulu, the first nonstop flights between the two cities.[28] The airline also increased the frequency of service on the Beijing-Houston Intercontinental route from four times weekly to daily service from 30 March 2014.[29] Beginning 10 June 2014, Air China
China
introduced new nonstop service from Beijing
Beijing

On 16 December 1989, CAAC Flight 981 (operated by Air China), a Boeing 747-200BM (B-2448), was hijacked while flying the Beijing-Shanghai-San Francisco- New York City
New York City
route. The hijacker's intended destination was Gimpo International Airport

in Seoul, South Korea, but after South Korean authorities refused permission to land, the aircraft landed in Fukuoka Airport

later that day.[50] On 10 August 1993, Air China
China
Flight 973, a Boeing 767
Boeing 767
was hijacked after takeoff from Beijing
Beijing
en route to Jakarta. A 30-year-old Chinese man passed a handwritten note to a flight attendant demanding to be flown to Taiwan. He threatened that his "accomplice" would destroy the aircraft unless he was flown to Taiwan. He was carrying a shampoo bottle containing a mixture of hydrochloric and nitric acids, and he threatened to disfigure nearby passengers with the acid unless his demands were followed. The aircraft was flown to Taipei International Airport, where the hijacker surrendered.[51] On 10 October 1998, Air China
China
Flight 905, a Boeing
Boeing

Chengdu
for safety reasons, and post-flight examinations revealed that the unknown object caused severe damage to the composite radar dome of the aircraft.[54][55]

Controversy[edit] Air China's inflight magazine Wings of China
China
faced accusations of racism when they stated " London
London
is generally a safe place to travel, however precautions are needed when entering areas mainly populated by Indians, Pakistanis and black people." in their September 2016 issue.[56] On 8 September 2016, Air China
China
issued an apology. Air China
China
Media, which publishes the Wings of China
China
magazine, said it wished to apologise to "readers and passengers who are feeling uncomfortable". It added: "This inappropriate description... was purely a work mistake by the editors and it's not the magazine's views...We will immediately recall this entire issue of magazines and draw lessons from this incident."
