The Chinese A320 Family final assembly line at Tianjin met its target of delivering 11 aircraft in 2009, Airbus has announced.
The first Chinese assembled Airbus was an A320 handed over to Sichuan Airlines via Dragon Aviation Leasing in June 2009. Since then five further A320s and five A319s assembled at Tianjin have been delivered to customers and are flying with Sichuan Airlines, Deer Air, Shenzhen Airlines and China Eastern Airlines.
The production rate at Tianjin will be ramped up to four aircraft per month by the end of 2011, Airbus says.
