In Singapore, Tibet Air signs a 50-jet contract.

Chinese carrier Tibet Air has finalised its order for 50 jets from China’s state-owned COMAC plane manufacturer.

The paperwork was signed on the sidelines of the Singapore Airshow.

Tibet’s order consists of 40 C919 jets and 10 smaller ARJ21’s which are designed to operate at high altitude airports.

COMAC said the C919 can become an alternative to the single-aisle dominance of the Airbus A320 family and Boeing’s 737 MAX line.

For now, the plane is only certified within China and the four jets currently in operation are flown domestically by China Eastern Airlines. But COMAC said its order book now stands at more than 1,000 for the model.
