China’s ARJ21 Jet Air­liner Ad­vances in Com­mer­cial Ser­vices

Fiji Sun - - CHINA/ASIA NEWS -

The China-de­vel­oped ARJ21 re­gional jet­liner has achieved con­tin­u­ous progress in com­mer­cial op­er­a­tions, ac­cord­ing to de­vel­oper the Com­mer­cial Air­craft Cor­po­ra­tion of China (COMAC).

COMAC has been ex­plor­ing the com­mer­cial op­er­a­tions of ARJ21 by de­vel­op­ing its ad­van­tages to bet­ter meet mar­ket needs, said the Chi­nese com­mer­cial air­craft maker.

FLY­ING INTO MAR­KET

In join­ing hands with air­lines, COMAC gains ex­pe­ri­ence from the com­mer­cial op­er­a­tions of ARJ21 and op­ti­mises its de­sign, pro­duc­tion and ser­vices. Ac­cord­ing to the plane­maker, the ARJ21 has just achieved a ma­jor land­mark in com­mer­cial op­er­a­tions by fly­ing the one mil­lionth pas­sen­ger on July 20.

The air­craft is China’s first turbo-fan re­gional pas­sen­ger jet­liner.

De­signed with 78-90 seats and a range of 3700km, it can fly in alpine and plateau re­gions and adapt to var­i­ous air­port con­di­tions. As a pi­o­neer of Chi­nese com­mer­cial air­planes, the ARJ21 was put into com­mer­cial ser­vice in June 2016 by Chengdu Air­lines.

As the launch op­er­a­tor, Chengdu Air­lines has been build­ing the com­mer­cial op­er­a­tion sys­tems for op­er­a­tions man­age­ment, main­te­nance, and train­ing of pro­fes­sion­als.

By now, the air­line has re­ceived 21 ARJ21 planes and used them in es­tab­lish­ing a net­work con­nect­ing cities across China with both trunk and re­gional routes. The air­line has also opened sev­eral high al­ti­tude routes to ex­ploit the jet­liner’s ad­van­tages and ex­plore its po­ten­tial.
