Production ramp-up at Airbus Alabama factory could add 600 jobs

MOBILE, Alabama – The Airbus Alabama manufacturing facility is in line for 600 new jobs, thanks to a planned second assembly line for the Bombardier C Series jetliner and a possible increase in the production of A320 Family aircraft.

On Tuesday at Airbus’ Mobile facility, high-ranking executives of Airbus and Bombardier gave the first detailed briefing on their plans for a production ramp-up that would bring the C Series to Alabama.

For that to happen, though, antitrust regulators must give their approval for Canada-based Bombardier to produce the aircraft in Alabama.

“As soon as we get that done, we’re going to break ground here and start building the final assembly line for the C Series,” said Alain Bellemare, president and CEO of Bombardier.
