DALLAS – Chinese aircraft manufacturer Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China (COMAC) has debuted at the Vietnam Airshow, showcasing its domestically developed passenger jets, the C919 and ARJ21. This appearance follows their successful debut at the Singapore Airshow 2024, which was the first time the aircraft was displayed outside of China.

After making their first international airshow appearance, the two COMAC aircraft departed from Singapore to Vietnam’s Van Don International Airport (VDO) in Quang Ninh Province on Monday.

After landing at VDO in northern Vietnam on February 26, the two aircraft are now part of a dedicated “COMAC Airshow” taking place until February 29th.
