China Southern Airlines took over the second ARJ21 aircraft in Shanghai on October 21st, 2020. The aircraft was introduced by means of financial leasing from Haikou Changru Aircraft Leasing Limited, which was established by China Southern Air International Financial Leasing Company Limited in Jiangdong New District, Haikou. This project is the first China-made aircraft leasing project settled down in Hainan Free Trade Port, and the first China-made aircraft leasing project of China Southern Airlines settled down in Hainan Free Trade Port. It will play an important driving role in the development of air transportation as well as aircraft leasing-related legal, financial and aviation maintenance industries in Hainan.  

Since receiving the first ARJ21 aircraft on June 28th, China Southern Airlines has used the aircraft on three domestic routes including Guangzhou-Jieyang, Guangzhou-Zhanjiang, and Jieyang-Pudong. In order to ensure the smooth operation of the second ARJ21 aircraft, China Southern Airlines still considers deploying the aircraft at its headquarters in Guangzhou first and then gradually deploying the aircraft to Daxing Airport after accumulating sufficient operating experience to expand the scope of services of Guangzhou-Beijing dual hub.

ARJ21 aircraft is a new type of turbofan regional jet independently developed by China and owning independent intellectual property right. The cabin layout and interiors of the ARJ21 aircraft of China Southern Airlines are custom-designed according to its own unique needs. Compared with other regional aircraft on the same route in the market, it has obvious comfort characteristics. The aircraft is in all economy-class cabin configuration with seats for 90 passengers, and the seats are arranged with two on the left and three on the right of the aisle in each row. The aisle is relatively spacious, with a width of 0.48 meter, so there is still room left and the aisle will not be blocked when the meal cart is passing through. Each seat is 0.43 meter wide, making it more spacious and more comfortable. The fore-and-aft clearance of the seats is 0.79 meter, which is the same as that of the seats in economy class on mainstream wide body aircraft. When a front seat is reclined backward, the lower end of the seat will move forward automatically, ensuring a relatively spacious seating space for a rear seat occupant.
