Airbus to add Bombardier C-Series jet production line in Alabama

MOBILE, Alabama — Airbus and Canadian aircraft producer Bombardier announced a partnership today that will bring assembly of Bombardier’s C Series passenger jets to the Airbus manufacturing facility in Mobile.

The companies said the alliance will result in a second assembly line at the Airbus facility, though the late afternoon announcement didn’t contain specific details about expansion. An Airbus spokeswoman said the partnership is in its early stages, though it will lead to growth at the company’s Mobile Aeroplex assembly line.

“Not only will this partnership secure the C Series and its industrial operations in Canada, the U.K. and China, but we also bring new jobs to the U.S.,” said Airbus CEO Tom Enders.

“Airbus will benefit from strengthening its product portfolio in the high-volume single-aisle market, offering superior value to our airline customers worldwide.”
