Toulouse, France – To match ongoing high demand for its A320 family, Airbus has taken the decision to further increase the production rate of the single-aisle family to 60 aircraft a month in mid-2019. The decision follows thorough studies on production ramp-up readiness in the supply chain and in Airbus sites to allow the ramp-up.
To enable the ramp-up, Airbus will extend its capacity in Hamburg with the creation of an additional production line. In parallel, Airbus will integrate cabin furnishing activities for A320 aircraft produced in Toulouse into the final assembly line in Toulouse, thereby harmonizing the production process across all A320 family final assembly lines worldwide.
