Home Search Send to Friend Latest Travel News Asia Wednesday, 4 March 2015

Airbus has decided to further increase the production rate of its A320 Family to 50 aircraft per month from Q1 2017.

Additionally, Airbus is adjusting the A330 production rate to six a month from Q1 2016 as it transitions towards the A330neo.

As an aircraft manufacturer, it is our role, for our employees, partners, customers and investors to anticipate market demands whilst delivering on orders and managing revenues, said Didier Evrard, Executive Vice President Programmes. Given the success of the A320 Family, both CEO and NEO, we work closely with our supply chain, assess our manufacturing capabilities and decide on the most appropriate rate. On widebodies we are adjusting A330 production in preparation for transition to NEO while in parallel the A350 XWB is on a steep ramp-up.

Airbus has sold over 11,500 Airbus single aisle aircraft and delivered more than 6,400 to 317 operators.

The A320 family includes the A319, A320 and A321.
