The Airbus U.S. Manufacturing Facility can produce three members of the A320 Family: the A319, A320 and A321.

 Thus far, the 36 aircraft delivered since operations began in 2015 have been A321s, making Tuesday’s flight another milestone for the U.S.-based production facility.

 Typically seating 150 passengers in two classes, or up to 180 in a high-density layout for charter and low-cost operations, the A320 is in widespread service around the world, flying routes ranging from short commuter sectors to coast-to-coast U.S. flights.
