One year on, Airbus #A320 Family Final Assembly Line in Mobile, Alabama is taking shape


Quote:


One year after the ground breaking ceremony for Airbus’ first A320 Family assembly facility to be built in the U.S., the Mobile Assembly Line is making good progress. The main buildings are taking shape and the first employees have started their on-the-job training at Airbus Hamburg in Germany.

The steelwork on the main building, the Final Assembly Line hangar where the A320 Family aircraft will be assembled, started in April 2013 and is nearing completion. In addition, the powerhouse, which will provide utilities such as electricity, hot and chilled water is also nearing completion. The construction work continues with the assembly of the service building, housing the main offices, followed by the building of the logistics centre.

In parallel to the construction, employees for the assembly line are also being recruited. The first manufacturing engineering employees started initial training in November 2013 in Mobile before beginning their on-the-job training in Hamburg, Germany in mid-January this year. Over the past few months, manufacturing engineers, station managers and quality managers have been working alongside their counterparts in Germany to become familiar with production tools and processes.

The Mobile FAL will eventually employ some 1,000 people, to assemble the world’s most fuel-efficient single aisle A320 Family aircraft.

Currently, Airbus has three A320 FALs (Hamburg, Toulouse and Tianjin). In July 2012 Airbus decided to establish a fourth A320 Family Final Assembly Line in Mobile, Alabama, U.S. Production start is scheduled in 2015, with first deliveries from the Mobile facility beginning in 2016. The Mobile Assembly Line will produce four aircraft a month by 2017.

China’s Tibet Airlines has taken delivery of its 1st #A319 equipped with #Sharklets

Quote:


Lhasa based Tibet Airlines from the Tibetan Autonomous Region of China has taken delivery of its first A319 with Sharklets. The aircraft which was handed over at the Airbus Tianjin Delivery Centre (ATDC) joins Tibet Airlines’ existing fleet of eight existing A319s. The aircraft is the 165th assembled at Airbus’Tianjin Final Assembly Line (FALC).

The aircraft is powered by CFM56-5B engines and features a comfortable two class cabin, seating 128 passengers with eight in business class and 120 in economy.

Tibet Airlines’ base is Gongga Airport, Lhasa, is one of the world’s highest airports at an altitude of 12,000 feet. The new A319 is certificated for high altitude airport operation and Required Navigation Performance – Authorisation Required (RNP-AR) and Satcom is installed.

RNP-AR procedures represent today the most modern navigation technique, allowing the aircraft to fly precisely along predefined routes using on-board navigation systems and the GPS-based ‘Global Navigation Satellite System’ (GNSS). The high accuracy provided by RNP-AR is especially important for airlines operating in and out of airports in mountainous regions. Tibet Airlines has selected Airbus ProSky, an Airbus subsidiary, as its strategic partner for its RNP-AR operations.

Sharklets are made from light-weight composites and are 2.4 meters tall. They are an option on new-build A320 Family aircraft and standard on all members of the new A320neo family. They offer operators up to four per cent fuel burn reduction on longer range sectors and provide the flexibility of either adding an additional 100 nautical miles range or increased payload capability of up to 450 kilograms.

The FALC in Tianjin is based on the latest state-of-the-art Airbus single aisle final assembly line in Hamburg, Germany. The aircraft delivered in China are assembled to the same standards as those assembled and delivered in Europe. Airbus has delivered 165 Tianjin assembled A320 Family aircraft. The aircraft are in service with 13 Chinese and Asian airlines.

The A320 Family (A318, A319, A320 and A321) is the world’s best-selling and most modern single aisle aircraft Family. To date, over 10,200 aircraft have been ordered and over 6,000 delivered to operators worldwide. With proven reliability and extended servicing periods, the A320 Family has the lowest operating costs of any single-aisle aircraft.

AirAsia to implement Airbus Managed Inventory service

Quote:


AirAsia has signed an agreement to implement the Airbus Managed Inventory (AMI) service for its A320 and A330 fleets at bases in Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok. The AMI service, which underlines Airbus’ strategy in offering customized services based on latest industry standards, ensures the automatic and continuous replenishment of high-usage and non-repairable parts at the customer’s facilities.

Anaz Ahmad Tajuddin, Group Head of Engineering of AirAsia says: “AirAsia is confident that the Airbus Managed Inventory service will support AirAsia and our associated company AirAsia X in paving the way for low-cost aviation through innovative solutions and efficient processes. With AMI we will minimize our spares investment costs while maximising delivery of parts when needed.”

Didier Lux, Senior Vice President of Customer Service at Airbus says: “Airbus continuously provides the best possible support to our customers.” He adds: “With Airbus Managed Inventory we are delighted to bring to AirAsia the benefits of our end-to-end supply chain solution covering a large range of Airbus expendables and standard parts.”

With this selection, AirAsia becomes the fourth customer in the region to choose the AMI automated inventory management solution. This service supports Airbus customers to reduce their inventory holding costs. By capturing material consumption information in real-time and automatically triggering replenishment orders within the agreed inventory levels, the service guarantees high on-shelf part availability while decreasing the overall inventory stock level.

I recommend posting this in the appropriate discussion thread as this is the A320 thread.
