Airbus chooses AIDC as new supplier for best-selling A320 Family

Aerospace Industrial Development Corporation (AIDC) in Taiwan has become a new tier-one supplier for Airbus. Under the agreement, which followed a thorough evaluation process, AIDC will produce composite panels for A320 Family aircraft aft belly fairings. The contract was signed by François Mery, Airbus Senior Vice President Aerostructure, Procurement and Tony Liou, AIDC Senior Vice President.

The Airbus A320 Family is the world's best-selling single aisle product line. As of end July 2014, the A320 Family had accumulated over 10,900 firm orders, with more than 6,100 aircraft delivered. The latest version A320neo, featuring new engines and Sharklets, has already gathered 3,200 orders before even entering service.

To date, 83 Airbus aircraft have been ordered by airlines in Taiwan, including China Airlines, EVA and TransAsia Airways, with 67 in operation. As a leading aircraft manufacturer, Airbus seeks to explore further collaborations with industries in regional markets and to considerably grow its industrial presence, especially in the fast-growing Asia-Pacific region.
