China Northwest Airlines Co., Ltd. (中国西北航空公司) was an airline based in the People's Republic of China. It started operations in 1989. In 2002, the airline, along with China Yunnan Airlines merged with China Eastern Airlines.

When CAAC broke itself up into six major airline corporations, China Northwest was one of them. The airline was based in Xian and operated a fleet of BAe 146, Tupolev Tu-154, Airbus A310 and later Airbus A320 aircraft. It operated mostly domestic routes but also a handful of international service to Japan.

After the acquisition the airline was renamed China Eastern Xi Bei.
