Air Chang'an (simplified Chinese: 长安航空; traditional Chinese: 長安航空; pinyin: Cháng'ān Hángkōng) is a Chinese domestic airline. Its main operating base is Xi'an Xianyang International Airport, serving several cities in Shaanxi Province. Initially an independent carrier, Air Chang'an merged with Hainan Airlines in 2000 and was later absorbed into that airline. Air Chang'an resumed service as an independent airline in May 2016, providing flights to four Chinese cities with three Boeing 737-800 aircraft.
In December 2015, HNA Group began talks with the Shaanxi provincial government regarding the restoration of Chang'an Airlines as an independent carrier. The airline would return to its original focus of flights within and out of Shaanxi Province. The airline rebranded as its original name and unveiled its own livery. After receiving its air operator certificate in April 2016, Air Chang'an resumed operations as an independent airline the following month on 9 May. The inaugural flight was from Xi'an to Zhuhai. During the customary water salute upon arrival in Zhuhai, the fire engines accidentally sprayed foam instead. As a result, the aircraft had to undergo a safety check, and the return flight was cancelled.
Hainan Airlines holds an 83.3% stake in the airline, up 21.9% following a 1.01 billion yuan share purchase in September 2015.
