China's homemade large passenger aircraft C919 has won its first commercial contract on Monday.
 

China Eastern Airlines, one of the country's largest airlines headquartered in Shanghai, signed a contract to buy five C919 jetliners from its developer Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China (COMAC). The first plane is expected to be delivered within this year.
 

The brand new planes, once delivered, will be put into operation in domestic flight routes connecting Shanghai and several other major cities including Beijing, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Chengdu, Xiamen, Wuhan and Qingdao.
 

The C919, as part of China's goal to develop homemade civil airplanes, is trying to compete with medium-range aircrafts from the two global giants, such as Airbus's A320 and Boeing's 737 MAX.
 

It has 158 to 168 seats, a standard range of 4,075 kilometers and a maximum range of 5,555 kilometers.
