China’s first indigenous regional jet ARJ21-700 landed in Xi’an, northwest China’s Shaanxi Province on Sunday, after claiming success in key crosswind tests in Iceland. 

The jet left Xi’an and arrived at Keflavik International Airport in early March. It carried out six take-offs and landings in the tests. 

Once China’s civil aviation authority accepts the test results, the jet will be able to operate on a wider scope. 

The ARJ21-700, produced by the Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China (COMAC), has 78 to 90 seats and a range of 2,225 to 3,700 kilometers. It mainly serves China's central and western cities.
