SHANGHAI, 3rd August, 2023 (WAM) — The second C919, China’s homegrown narrow-body passenger jet, commenced commercial operations on Wednesday, serving passengers traveling between Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport and Chengdu Tianfu International Airport in Sichuan province.

The second C919, identical to the first in terms of fuselage design, seat arrangement, and meal service, was received by China Eastern Airlines. The MU9197 flight took off from Hongqiao Airport at 8:10 and after a lengthy two hour journey, it touched down at Chengdu Tianfu International Airport, reported ShanghaiEye.

The Shanghai-Chengdu route is one of the most sought-after during the summer travel season, with the number of domestic round-trip passengers ranking among the top ten.

In line with the current plan, China Eastern Airlines is expected to acquire three more C919s, and future C919s are projected to serve an expanded network of routes.
