China Express Airlines has signed a firm order for 50 ARJ21-700 aircraft worth $1.9 billion at list prices with state-owned Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China (COMAC), the regional carrier said on Friday.

By the end of September, COMAC had delivered 34 ARJ21 aircraft since the jet went into operation in 2016. The country's three biggest state-owned airlines last year announced deals to each purchase 35 ARJ21 regional jets.
