ARJ21, China's first domestically developed regional jet, completed its first highland test flight in southwest China, between Kunming, Lijiang and Xishuangbanna on Aug. 19.

Designed to adapt to the highland conditions with high anti-crosswind capabilities, ARJ21 can take off and land at the highland airports and avoid obstacles along the complicated air routes in southwest China.

China's civil aviation industry has developed fast since 1949. The airport facilities of civil aviation have gradually improved, the coverage of the airline network has dramatically increased, and air transportation capabilities have significantly advanced.

By the end of 2018, China's regularly scheduled flights had traveled a total distance of 8.4 million kilometers.
