The Commercial Aircraft Corp of China (COMAC) will deliver its ARJ21 Xiangfeng, China's first indigenously designed regional jet, to Chengdu Airlines by the end of the year, the Xinhua News Agency reported Tuesday.

COMAC will deliver the first twin-engined jet at the end of November or the beginning of December. It is expected to fly popular air routes from Chengdu to Beijing and Shanghai, said COMAC and Chengdu Airlines.

The domestically designed airliner is China's first regional jet manufactured according to international standards. Its maiden flight was made in 2008, six years after the project was launched.
