Posted 25 January 2018 · Add Comment

The Ministry of Transport in the Republic of Congo has signed an order for two ARJ21-700s, reports ch-aviation.

The commitment was placed by Minister Fidèle Dimou following a showcasing of the twinjet by its only commercial operator, Chengdu Airlines.

In preparation for the delivery of its first pair of ARJ21s later this year, the Congolese government has already granted the aircraft a type certificate. The ROC is also due to add a VIP-configured ARJ21-700, set for delivery in 2023.

The aircraft will likely be placed with state-owned Air Congo, which already operates a quartet of MA-60s on domestic Congolese flights.
