China's first large passenger jet completes commercial flight

China's first domestic large passenger aircraft successfully completed its first commercial flight on Sunday. The C919, made by the state-owned Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China, Ltd. (COMAC), flew from Shanghai to Beijing carrying 128 passengers.

The aircraft had its maiden flight in 2017, with test flights carried out regularly ever since. "It's a coming-of-age ceremony of the new aircraft, and C919 will get better if it stands the test of the market," COMAC Marketing and Sales Director Zhang Xiaoguang said, according to the Xinhua news outlet.
