Delivery of the first aircraft MRJ will be made no earlier than 2018 years

Japan's All Nippon Airways will receive Mitsubishi Regional Jet airliners no earlier than 2018 of the year.

As it became known to the news agency, for technical reasons, passenger aircraft Mitsubishi Regional Jet cannot be delivered to the Japanese air carrier All Nippon Airways in the earlier specified period, due to the need for improvements, however, the aircraft manufacturer stressed that the aircraft will be transferred to the aircraft operator already in the first quarter of 2018.

The exact number of passenger airliners envisaged by the signed contract remains unknown, however, a few months earlier, the aircraft manufacturer announced about 400 orders, which in all likelihood may indicate that All Nippon Airways is purchasing about 50-60 aircraft.
