The airline was established as a domestic carrier on July 25, 1984, primarily to connect the province of Fujian to the rest of China. As China's aviation sector developed the airline expanded to regional Asian destinations while the delivery of wide-body Boeing 787 Dreamliners permitted the airline to offer long-distance services. The airline's first inter-continental expansion was to Europe which commenced with an Amsterdam service from July 26, 2015, and a Paris service from December 11, 2018. Services to Sydney followed from November 30, 2015, and Melbourne a year later. The airline's first North American service, to Vancouver was launched on July 26, 2016. XiamenAir's first US service was to Seattle followed by Los Angeles and then New York.
By early 2020, the airline had set up bases at Fuzhou Changle International Airport, Nanchang Changbei International Airport, Hangzhou Xiaoshan International Airport, Tianjin Binhai International Airport, Changsha Huanghua International Airport, Beijing Daxing International Airport（moved from Beijing Capital International Airport in 2020）, Quanzhou Jinjiang International Airport, Chongqing Jiangbei International Airport and Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport.
