Mitsubishi Heavy Industries has announced that it is to go ahead with a $1 billion project to manufacture a 70-90 seater regional jet. This would make it the first passenger jet aircraft to be built in Japan. Mitsubishi has been testing market reaction in recent months to check if there was demand for the aircraft on short and mid range routes.

On Thursday ANA placed an order for 25 and JAL is believed to be interested in placing an order.
