China Encourages Airlines to Use Domestically Produced Jets

Chinese airlines are being directed toward buying domestically-produced jets for their regional routes.

The Civil Aviation Administration of China is promising to help Chinese airlines develop their regional routes, and at the same time, is trying to nudge them toward using domestically-manufactured jets on their domestic runs.

The Administration is pointing specifically to the ARJ21.

ARJ21, short for Advanced Regional Jet for the 21st Century, is viewed by the CAAC as a suitable jet to move small numbers of passengers from city to city.

Shanghai-based Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China has received nearly 280 orders for the ARJ21.
