Air China received an Airbus A320neo and an Airbus A321neo from Airbus headquarters in Toulouse, France, on December 31, 2021.
The Chinese flag carrier got a brand-new Airbus A350 from the manufacturer’s Tianjin, China factory the day before. Air China set a lofty aim of receiving 55 planes by 2021, but even with the three new planes, the airline fell short of its target.
The two Airbus A320neo series planes will be stationed at Air China’s Chengdu hub in China. Chengdu’s Tianfu International Airport, the city’s second mega airport, opened in June 2021 to accommodate the region’s ever-increasing travel demand.
Air China’s Beijing hub will be home to the recently delivered A350. This A350 is the third of its sort to leave Airbus’s factory in Tianjin, China. Airbus opened its Tianjin A350 finishing center in July 2021 and delivered its first A350 to China Eastern.
