Last Mitsubishi passenger planes MC-20 were built in 1940-1944. MRJ has been returning to fly beyond 75 years setback. The first Mitsubishi developed passenger plane MC-1 was built in 1928. The start of Mitsubishi's airplane business was 1916 by an airplane engine production at Kobe Ship Yard. Mitsubishi Aircraft will be back to a commercial plane market again with one century heritage.

The MRJ is a family of 70- to 90-seat next-generation regional jets under development by Mitsubishi Aircraft. The MRJ will offer substantially higher fuel efficiency combined with reductions in noise and emissions, and also provide spacious cabin comfort on a level unprecedented in regional jets to date.
