China's ARJ21 jetliner advances in delivery, scale of operation



BEIJING, Dec. 24 (Xinhua) -- China's independently-developed ARJ21 regional jetliner has entered a phase of accelerated deliveries and large scale commercial operation, according to civil aviation authorities.

As of now, a total of 41 ARJ21 airplanes have been delivered to eight domestic customers with expanded commercial operations in the market, the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) said.

The progress of ARJ21 ensues from the CAAC's persistent support and efforts in the airworthiness certification works on China's civil airplanes.

The CAAC will continuously support its developer Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China in further improving and enhancing the ARJ21 aircraft model, the CAAC said. Enditem
