Although Yangtze's short haul and regional workhorse is the 737NG series, the airline's main hub in Shanghai has an all-Airbus A320 series short haul fleet. In fact, all of Yangtze's A320 series aircraft are based out of Shanghai, with the 737 fleet being stationed at the other hubs. In 2018, Yangtze Airlines welcomed its first A320neo aircraft, and continued to operate that type exclusively out of Shanghai. The airline now has 52 A320neos, with 18 more on order.
