Airbus’ game-changing A320 Family jetliner final assembly line in Mobile, Alabama – officially called the Airbus U.S. Manufacturing Facility – is the company’s first production site in America. 

This facility commenced aircraft assembly in July 2015, and delivered its first completed aircraft – an A321 – in April 2016 to U.S. customer JetBlue. The Airbus U.S. Manufacturing Facility is expected to deliver four aircraft per month by the end of 2017. Initial deliveries will be for A319, A320 and A321 current engine option (CEO) versions from Airbus’ best-selling single-aisle family of jetliners, with the site transitioning to NEO (new engine option) versions beginning in late 2017.

The $600-million, 53-acre facility at the Mobile Aeroplex at Brookley represents Airbus’ significant commitment to the U.S. – which is the largest market in the world for single-aisle aircraft. The vast majority of A320 Family jetliners produce in Mobile, Alabama will be delivered to North American customers. 

In addition, the Mobile A320 Family final assembly line builds on an already strong presence of Airbus and its Airbus Group parent company in this Gulf Coast city – which also includes an engineering centre at the Mobile Aeroplex at Brookley that employs more than 200 engineers and support staff, as well as the Airbus Group’s North American military customer services operation near the Mobile Regional Airport.
