Genghis Khan Airlines takes delivery of Comac ARJ21-700 ahead of launch

Chinese start-up Genghis Khan Airlines, formerly known as Tianjiao Airlines, has taken delivery of its second Comac ARJ21-700 ahead of the airline’s launch next month.

Genghis Khan has big hopes for the future, based at Hohhot Baita International Airport, with hopes to have a fleet of 25 aircraft, operating 60 flights to 40 destinations within five years, the airline says.

Initially set to utilise Bombardier CRJ900s, the airline switched to Comac AJ21s, with 25 firm orders and an optional for 25 more placed in August 2018.

Genghis Khan has commenced verification test flights with its first ARJ21, flying between its base at Hohhot Baita International Airport, located in Inner Mongolia’s far north.
