Airbus has delivered China Express with an A320 airplane, the first Airbus passenger plane equipped with seats manufactured by a Chinese company, according to Airbus China Wednesday.

It is a new milestone for the Airbus-China industrial cooperation, said Airbus China.

The newly-delivered A320 aircraft has a two-cabin layout with four seats in the business class and 168 seats in the economy class. It will soon be used in China Express domestic routes.

These aircraft seats were made by Ali-Jiatai Aircraft Equipment Co., Ltd. based in Xiangyang, central China's Hubei Province.
