This is the airline's sixth daily flight to Asia from DFW and the only nonstop flight connecting DFW and Beijing. With the addition of this service, American will offer 11 routes between the U.S. and Asia. Customers may begin booking flights on the new route this Saturday, Jan. 24.

"The Asia-Pacific region is a key market for American and we would like to thank the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) and the U.S. Department of Transportation for granting us the authority to operate this very important service," said Andrew Nocella, American's chief marketing officer.

Through American's extensive network from Dallas/Fort Worth, customers traveling from Beijing will now have one-stop access to nearly 200 additional destinations throughout North, Central and South America. American offers more service to Latin America than any other U.S. airline.
