El rival chino de Boeing y Airbus se acerca a aprobación de vuelos comerciales

July 13, 2021 - Después de más de una década en desarrollo y de subsidio gubernamental por $72.000 millones, el primer jet de pasajeros de China, el Comac C919, de pasillo único, está por ser aprobado para comenzar vuelos comerciales.

Spun out of China’s military aviation industry in 2008, Comac has announced close to 1,000 orders and options for the plane, mainly from domestic customers. The first delivery, to China Eastern Airlines, is due to take place by the end of this year, according to the Financial Times.

The C919 is no match in fuel efficiency or range for the newest versions of the Airbus A320 or Boeing’s 737 family. But the big worry for the western groups is that future iterations could make a large dent in orders from China.

The country is on course to become the world’s largest aviation market. Boeing predicts the country’s airlines will acquire a total of 8,600 new planes over the next 20 years alone, FT said.
