China completes first Airbus

AIRBUS has completed the assembly of its first aircraft outside Europe.  Making its maiden flight from Tianjin last week was an A320 destined for Sichuan Airlines.  The plan is to produce another nine aircraft this year and gradually build up to four ‘planes per month and 48 ‘planes annually by the end of 2011.  “The flight was a complete success thanks to excellent teamwork,” said Fernando Alonso, Airbus Senior Vice President Flight & Integration Tests.  “I was delighted to participate in this historic flight.  This A320 assembled in China unquestionably demonstrated the same quality and performance as those assembled and delivered in Hamburg or Toulouse.”  Chinese customers have ordered more than 700 aircraft from Airbus, the majority of which are from the A320 Family. www.airbus.com
