China Eastern Airlines Receives First of 100-Aircraft Order



The first aircraft of an additional order of 100 C919 jets placed by China Eastern Airlines last year was delivered, bearing flight number B-919G, as the Chinese-developed jetliner recently marked its one year of commercial operations.

With this delivery, the C919 fleet of China Eastern Airlines, the first global buyer of the aircraft, now increases to six planes.

China Eastern Airlines operated the maiden flight of the C919 on May 28, 2023. Over the past year, the company has run multiple routes with five C919 jets. This signifies the full-fledged acceleration of large-scale commercial operations of the C919 with sizeable fleets.
