American Airlines gets its first Alabama-made Airbus A321

MOBILE, Alabama — American Airlines today claimed its first Alabama-made Airbus A321 passenger jet after a ceremony at the manufacturer’s production facility at Mobile Aeroplex.

The A321 sporting American’s logo and colors is the second aircraft to leave the assembly line at Airbus’ new $600 million Alabama plant. The first – named “BluesMobile” — went to JetBlue on April 25.

”The delivery of this aircraft is another key milestone for Airbus and for Team Mobile,” said Daryl Taylor, general manager of the Alabama facility. “It’s also a symbol – a symbol of what can happen when a team works together to create something special, and I know we are creating something special here in Mobile.”
