HISTORY: CHINA UNITED AIRLINES is a budget airline with its headquarters in Fengtai District, Beijing, China, operating scheduled flights and charter services in co-operation with local enterprises out of Beijing Nanyuan Airport, making it the only commercial airline using this airport. The airline previously had its headquarters in another area in Fengtai District, Beijing. China United Airlines was established in 1986 as an arm of the civil transport division of the People's Liberation Army. In November 2002, all scheduled services were ceased, followed by a full suspension of flight operations in 2003 due to a Chinese governmental regulation prohibiting the Army from being directly involved in commercial activities.
