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. A ceremony in April 2013 marked the beginning of construction for the $600-million facility, with aircraft assembly scheduled to begin in 2015 and the first delivery targeted for 2016.
