China’s First Homegrown Jet Gets December Delivery Date
What’s new: The first batch of China’s homegrown C919 aircraft will be delivered to China Eastern Airlines Corp. (600115.SH) in December, the state-owned carrier’s general manager Li Yangmin said Monday at an internal meeting.
China Eastern will shoulder the “political responsibility” to be the first airline operating the C919 in commercial flights, Li said. The country hopes to rival Boeing Co. and Airbus SE in producing jets.
