Airbus Final Assembly Line China achieves 2009 target

The Airbus A320 Family Final Assembly Line China (FALC) has achieved its 2009 target as the 11th A320 Family aircraft assembled by the FALC was delivered to Deer Air, an airline part of the HNA Group, on 16th December in Tianjin.

The first A320 assembled by the FALC was delivered to Sichuan Airlines via Dragon Aviation Leasing on 23rd June 2009. Since then, a total of five A320 and five A319 assembled by the FALC have been delivered and are now in operation with Sichuan Airlines, Deer Air, Shenzhen Airlines and China Eastern Airlines.

"We are very proud to have achieved our target in the first year of operation, on schedule and on quality. When we started operations in August 2008, we had two challenges: deliver Airbus quality from Tianjin and ensure a smooth ramp up of production. Both objectives were reached thanks to our Chinese partners' daily commitment as well as Airbus' active support at all levels. The success achieved in FALC is definitely a way forward for the continuous industrial cooperation between Airbus and China," said Laurence Barron, Airbus China President.

"This is a significant step for the development of FALC and is the result of the joint-efforts made by the Chinese and the European partners. FALC is an excellent example of the cooperation between the Chinese aviation industry and the rest of the world. FALC is a driving force for the development of the Aviation Industrial Base in Tianjin," said Zhao Haishan, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Airbus (Tianjin) Final Assembly Company Ltd.
