(COMAC) delivered an ARJ21 aircraft for the first time at COMAC Jiangxi Production Flight Test Center on October 30th, 2020, which was the third ARJ21 aircraft received by Jiangxi Air. The ARJ21 aircraft with a painting of "Yichun" is in all economy-class cabin configuration with seats for 90 passengers, and follows the themed cabin service mode of "one aircraft, one city, and one culture" for the ARJ21 aircraft of Jiangxi Air.
