Airbus Tianjin General Assembly Line Will Increase A321 Production Capacity and Is Expected to Start Delivery in The Fourth Quarter of 2022

Nov 29,2021

 Airbus announced the signing of a cooperation framework agreement with its partners , It is planned to be located in... In Tianjin A320 The production capacity of the Asian assembly line of series aircraft is expanded to A321 The plane .
before , Airbus Tianjin general assembly line is responsible for general assembly A320 In the series of aircraft A319 and A320 Two models . The signing of the cooperation framework agreement , It means Tianjin General Assembly Line A320 The production of series aircraft will be increased to three types .
At the media communication meeting on that day , Cheng Long, chief operating officer of Airbus China, revealed , The medium-term goal is , To 2022 In the fourth quarter of, the first A321 deliver .
About why do in China A321 Conversion project , Cheng Long responded that :“ The first premise is that production matches market demand ; secondly , This is also in line with Airbus's long-term strategic deployment in China .”
Airbus decided to add... To its Tianjin final assembly line A321 throughput , Behind it is right A321 Optimistic prediction of market demand scale .
According to the interface news , At present, Airbus 320 In a series of reserve orders ,A321 The amount of reserve orders is equivalent to A319 and A320 The sum of , And the whole Air China A320 In the series fleet ,A321 Only occupy 25% The proportion of . Airbus said , In the future, the Chinese market will need a lot of A321, It will also move towards 50% The proportion of further development .
airbus A321neo The plane is A320neo The largest member of the series , Under the condition of single cabin layout, the maximum passenger capacity can reach 244 people . Because there are more parts , More work ,A321 The final assembly is also better than A320 More complex . It is reported that ,A321 The ratio of the number of work orders of the model's final assembly business to the number of work orders A320 Many models 20%.

So , Most factories of Airbus Tianjin assembly line need to be reconstructed , And the transformation scale involved is large , Including paint shop Adjustment of production tooling and fixture, etc , in addition , Tianjin assembly line also needs to further train employees .

In terms of operational arrangements , Cheng Long, chief operating officer of Airbus China, told interface news , Production can be continued during plant reconstruction A320 Model , But the period of tooling and fixture transformation ,A320 Production needs to be suspended , The plant will have an empty window period of operation for comprehensive transformation .

Airbus Tianjin final assembly line is planned to be in 2022 year 7 The adaptation upgrade began in January , The upgrade plan has been predicted and integrated in Airbus global production plan , The adaptation and transformation of the final assembly line , It will not change its original capacity and production rate .

Airbus also revealed at the media communication meeting , future , Airbus Tianjin final assembly line will have 320neo and 321neo throughput , But with 321neo It's the main model . As for the specific production proportion of different models , It will depend on the demand of Chinese airline customers for two models , Airbus will maintain some flexibility , To match the market demand for different models .

according to the understanding of , at present , Only the two final assembly lines in Hamburg and mobile have A321 Aircraft production and delivery capacity . future , Airbus Toulouse and Tianjin assembly lines will be aimed at A321 Adaptation and transformation of aircraft production , Airbus has four seats A320 The final assembly line of series aircraft will eventually have production and delivery A321 Aircraft capability , In response to the reserve order A321 The huge demand brought by the increasing share of aircraft .

Additive manufacturing, as the current manufacturing technology trend, has the advantages of environmental protection, fast and low cost. Under this background, the 11th Annual China Aviation Industry Shanghai Summit 2021 will be rescheduled to December 2nd - 3rd, 2021, in Shanghai. You are welcome to participate.
