Airbus Alabama production launch to boost aerospace sector

MOBILE, Alabama – Airbus leaders and Alabama officials gathered at Mobile Aeroplex today to celebrate the official opening of the aviation giant’s most advanced manufacturing facility – a development that will push the state’s aerospace sector to new altitudes.

“Today shows that Airbus is truly becoming a global manufacturer and a truly American manufacturer,” said Airbus CEO Fabrice Brégier at this morning’s grand opening ceremony.

Airbus has already begun assembly of the first Alabama-made aircraft at the $600 million Mobile facility, one of just four locations in the world where the company produces its top-selling A320 Family of passenger jets. The plant will eventually employ 1,000 workers, turning out 40 to 50 aircraft per year.
