BEIJING (Sputnik) – The first commercial flight of China’s mainline passenger airliner C919 successfully took place on Sunday, Chinese television reported.

The official China Eastern Airlines app said that the aircraft took flight MU9191 from Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport to Beijing Shawdu International Airport on May 28, departing at 10:32 local time (02:32 GMT).

The plane has already landed in Beijing.

Chinese state-owned aerospace manufacturer Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China (COMAC) on December 9, 2022 handed over the first C919 to China Eastern Airlines, one of the largest Chinese airline companies. The registration number of the aircraft is B-919A, with “B” meaning it is a Chinese civil aviation aircraft, “919” corresponding to the model name, and “A” meaning it is the first one in the series. Its capacity is 164 seats: eight in business class and 156 in economy class.
