We investigate Airy-soliton interactions in self-defocusing media with PT potentials in one transverse dimension. We discuss different potentials in which the interacting beams with different phases are launched into the media at different separation distances. During interactions, there exist a primary collision region and a relaxation region accompanied by continuous interaction with the dispersed Airy tail. In the relaxation region, the beams exist as soliton-like and breathers-like propagation. The beam width and mean power are influenced by initial separation, phase shift and modulation depth of PT potentials. Especially, the collision distance decreases with the spatial beam separation and the mean power possesses sinusoidal dependence on the phase shift.
