Mexican airline takes delivery of Airbus jet in milestone for Alabama facility

MOBILE, Alabama — Airbus said today that Mexico’s ultra-low-cost airline Volaris has taken delivery of an A320neo from Airbus’ U.S.-based production facility in Alabama, marking the first time a non-U.S. airline to take delivery of an aircraft produced at the site.

With this aircraft, Volaris — Latin America’s largest A320neo Family operator — will expand its route offering, setting the stage for the carrier’s long-term growth.

Volaris has operated Airbus aircraft exclusively since it started operating in 2006. In 2017, the airline placed the largest firm order in Mexican history for 80 A320neo family aircraft.

To date, Volaris has ordered more than 200 A320 Family aircraft.
