Nantes employees in action
Delivered by Beluga to the Hamburg site, the CWB will be integrated together with Section 15 (the RCT Flange-Module) into the front part of the Center-Aft-Fuselage (CAF), hereby launching the start of assembly for the main components of this first aircraft in the dedicated H260 “Structure Pilot Line” in Hamburg. Meanwhile, in Nantes, the next two CWBs, which are intended for the flight test aircraft, are already being assembled. Looking further ahead, the CWB for the first customer-delivered aircraft is planned to enter production in Q4 2021.
The A321XLR’s entry into service is planned in 2023.
