This is the second Xinzhou-60 aircraft delivered to Djibouti by XAC, and this type of aircraft has won positive feedback from its customers since its first delivery, according to XAC.
This plane set off from Yanliang, Xi’an, Shaanxi Province last Tuesday and arrived at Kunming Changshui International Airport after a three-and-a-half hour journey. It was officially delivered on Friday.
The airplane began its overseas journey on Saturday and will arrive in Djibouti in four days after a journey of 4833 nautical miles (about 8,950 kilometers), passing though six countries including Myanmar, Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia.
