ANA Holdings Inc. is considering flying the Mitsubishi Regional Jet, the nation's first indigenously built small jet, on a domestic route to and from Chubu Centrair International Airport, a source at the airline group said Tuesday. The airport serves Nagoya city.

This will be the commercial debut of the MRJ since ANA Holdings, the parent of All Nippon Airways Co., is scheduled to be the world's first recipient of the jet among six clients signed up so far. ANA has ordered 25 of the aircraft, with the first expected to be delivered in the first quarter of fiscal 2017.

In all, Mitsubishi Aircraft has received orders for 407 aircraft from ANA, Japan Airlines Co., and four carriers in the U.S. and Myanmar. Nearly half, or 184, are on option and purchase rights, which allows the buyer to pull out of the deal within a designated window.
