Touchdown as China Southern’s ARJ21 begins Guangdong route

China Southern, the nation’s largest air carrier, began deploying the domestically developed ARJ21 on daily flights between Shanghai and south Guangdong Province on Saturday.

The ARJ21 travels from Jieyang, Guangdong, to Shanghai’s Pudong International Airport at 11:35am and returns to Jieyang at 3:10pm every day.

The same aircraft will fly from Guangzhou to Jieyang and Jieyang to Guangzhou before and after the trip to Shanghai, marking the longest six hours and 45 minutes daily flying period of the regional jet, since it started commercial operation with the carrier in July.

China Southern took delivery of its first ARJ21 on June 28 and started commercial operation on July 15. The aircraft has transported over 10,000 travelers with the carrier since then.
