Original delivery of first aircraft had aimed at early 2014
Mitsubishi Aircraft has reportedly said it will delay the first delivery of its MRJ regional jet for a fifth time – until mid-2020. This adds two years to the earlier target of mid-2018.
The Japanese manufacturer had already warned launch customer All Nippon Airways that delivery could be pushed back once again. A press conference has been called for today to present more information.
According to the reports, engineers need to rearrange the location of electronic equipment.
Delivery of the first Japanese-produced commercial aircraft since the NAMC YS-11 turboprop had originally aimed for early 2014. But following numerous delays, the first flight occurred only in November 2015. Four MRJ90 test aircraft have flown so far, the majority taking place in the US.
