Airbus Alabama expansion project adding 1,000 jobs in Mobile

MOBILE, Alabama ­— Governor Kay Ivey joined Airbus officials, Mobile leaders and education professionals at a community event this afternoon to celebrate the aerospace company’s new growth plans at its Alabama manufacturing facility.

Airbus’ latest expansion project calls for the addition of a third Final Assembly Line, or FAL, at its Mobile factory to support increased production of its A320 Family of single-aisle passenger aircraft.

During today’s event at Bishop State Community College, Airbus outlined plans to add 1,000 new jobs over the next several years to its workforce at the Mobile manufacturing facility, which today numbers around 1,200.

“It’s wonderful to see Airbus continue to grow its only U.S. airliner manufacturing operation with another expansion in Mobile,” Governor Ivey said.
