MOBILE, Ala. -- A lot of A321 jetliners built in Mobile have been delivered to customers, and now the first A320 made at the Mobile Aeroplex will be delivered Friday. It will be delivered to Spirit Airlines. This U.S.-built A320 had its first flight of four hours August 15. The Airbus U.S. Manufacturing Facility can produce three members of the A320 series: the A319, A320 and A321. So far 36 aircraft, all A321s, have been delivered since operations began in 2015. The A320 single-aisle jetliners entered airline service in April 1988. (Source: GCAC, 08/22/17) Previous
