Airbus is making history with its decision to create an A320 Family jetliner final assembly line in Mobile, Alabama – officially called the Airbus U.S. Manufacturing Facility – which will become company’s first production site in America.
This game-changing plan was announced in July 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.
Reaching a key milestone in late May 2015, large aircraft components for the first A320 Family jetliner to be produced at the Airbus U.S. Manufacturing Facility departed Hamburg, Germany for their transatlantic voyage by cargo ship.
