Airbus deliveres first US-built A321 to JetBlue

Just 3 years after Airbus started building the new facility in Mobile, Alabama, they have completed and delivered the facilities first aircraft to American airline JetBlue.

40% of the aircraft parts, including the engines, came from US partners and suppliers. The rest of the aircraft, including the front and aft fuselage sections, were shipped from Hamburg, Germany.

Airbus now has final assembly plants in China, France, Germany and the United States.
