The designed standard range is 2,200 nm and extended range 3,000 nm, which enables it to meet airlines’ needs for operation on diversified air routes. Its designed lifespan is 90,000 flight hours or 30 calendar years. C919 trunkliner is designed and developed as per international civil aviation regulations and airworthiness standards, and will be airworthiness certified so as to ensure its safety. Fuel burn and DOC are lower than currently in-service aircraft of similar seats category, which makes it economically favorable.

Comfort is improved by means of expanding cabin space and seat width and also installing new airborne equipment. New engine is selected to meet noise and emission requirements; hence improved greenness. The C919 family will extend from baseline version to stretched, shortened, freighter, special and business versions.
