Located in the former A380 “Jean-Luc Lagard√®re” building, the assembly line reflects Airbus’ commitment to modernise and meet the growing global demand for the A321neo, which now accounts for nearly 65% of Airbus’ A320 Family order backlog.

The delivery of the aircraft to Pegasus Airlines marks the start of the ramp-up of the new Toulouse FAL, which together with the other A320 Family FALs in Hamburg (Germany), Mobile (USA) and Tianjin (China), will contribute to Airbus’ objective of producing 75 A320 Family aircraft per month in 2026.
