Airbus delivers the 50th A320 Family aircraft assembled in China
After less than two years Airbus today celebrated the hand-over of its 50th aircraft assembled by FALC at the Airbus (Tianjin) Delivery Centre to Chinese customer, Juneyao Airlines, a Shanghai-based privately-owned carrier.
“We are pleased to take delivery of the 50th aircraft assembled at FALC to further enhance our all Airbus fleet,” said Wang Junjin, Chairman of Juneyao Airlines. “Our highly reliable A320 Family fleet has demonstrated excellent performance while keeping operational costs low,” Wang Junjin added.
The FALC is a joint venture between Airbus and a Chinese consortium comprising Tianjin Free Trade Zone (TJFTZ) and China Aviation Industry Corporation (AVIC). Since the first delivery of a FALC assembled A320 Family aircraft to Sichuan Airlines in 2009, 50 A320 Family aircraft, of which seven are A319s and 43 A320s, including today’s, have been delivered by Airbus in Tianjin to nine Chinese Airlines.
