Airbus is making history with its decision to create an A320 Family jetliner final assembly line in Mobile, Alabama, which will become company’s first U.S.-based production facility.
This game-changing plan was announced on July 2, 2012 by the Airbus senior management team during a special event held in Mobile, with the presence of Alabama officials, airline customers, industry suppliers, Airbus employees and local guests.
