30 January 2009 News in brief

Since its formal inauguration in September 2008, the new Airbus A320 Family final assembly line in Tianjin, China is running smoothly. All stations in the main facility are now occupied with aircraft undergoing their build-up, as four single-aisle aircraft have now been assembled and sections for the fifth are ready to be put in position. The initial completed aircraft from Tianjin is planned for delivery in mid-year to Chinese operator Sichuan Airlines, with the targeted production rate of four A320 Family jetliners per month expected to be reached at the end of 2011.
