CCB Financial Leasing Corporation (CCB Financial) has inked an order for 50 Comac C919s, bringing the airframer's total orderbook for the narrowbody to 330.

CCB Financial is the leasing arm of China Construction Bank, one of the big four banks in China. The deal was signed in Beijing this morning, says a Comac spokesman.

Neither the deal's financial details nor the delivery schedule were revealed.

This order is the third for the C919 in 2012, after ABC Financial Leasing signed for 45 of the aircraft in July.

The C919 is scheduled to have its first flight in 2014 with deliveries to begin in 2016.
