[Avionics Today 11-02-2015] To match ongoing high demand for its bestselling A320 family, Airbus will further increase the production rate of the single-aisle family to 60 aircraft a month in mid-2019. The decision follows thorough studies on production ramp-up readiness in the supply chain and in Airbus sites to allow the increase.

To enable the ramp-up, Airbus will extend its capacity in Hamburg, Germany with the creation of an additional production line. In parallel, Airbus will integrate cabin-furnishing activities for A320 aircraft produced in Toulouse, France into the Final assembly line in Toulouse, thereby harmonizing the production process across all A320 family final assembly lines.
