Chinese aircraft maker, airline join hands to tap African market

China-made ARJ21 regional jets are expected to enter the African market, according to a memorandum of understanding between Hainan Airlines (HNA) and the Commercial Aircraft Corp. of China (COMAC) that was signed on Friday.

HNA will deliver ARJ21 regional jets into African countries based on its global airline network and partnerships with African airliners such as the Ghana-based AWA.

HNA and COMAC will take an active role to assist African countries in building regional airline networks, carry out cooperation in areas including aircraft maintenance, aviation materials supply and personnel training.

The two companies also set eyes on establishing a jet leasing company in Africa to support sales of domestically made planes: Chinese aircraft maker, airline join hands to tap African market
