Airbus Resumes Work on Final Assembly Line for A320/A321 Jets
By Olivia Bugault
Airbus SE said Wednesday that it has resumed the modernization
work on a final assembly line of its A320 family jets in Toulouse,
The new assembly line should be operational by the end of 2022
and will have the capacity to build A321 aircraft, the European
plane maker said.
"Initial plans to introduce A321 production capabilities in
Toulouse were put on hold at the outset of the Covid-19 crisis,
following the decision to reduce commercial aircraft production by
around 40%," Airbus said.
Airbus decided to resume its work to support the market recovery
that is in sight, it said.
