One of Airbus’ suppliers in China began equipping Airbus A320 fuselages. By 2024, Xi’an Aircraft International will complete six fuselages per month, fully meeting the needs of Airbus’ final assembly line in Tianjin. The manufacturer said this further demonstrates its commitment towards vertical integration of its production in China.
 

On June 22nd, Airbus and China’s Aviation Industry Corporation (AVIC) launched their joint fuselage equipping project for the Airbus A320. The project, located in Tianjin, was first initiated over two years ago.
 

Locally, it is undertaken by Xi’an Aircraft International (XAT), one of the close to 100 subsidiaries of state-owned AVIC. The aim is to supply Airbus’ A320 Final Assembly Line Asia and to accelerate Tianjin as the center for the manufacturer in China.
 

The first delivery of the Tianjin fuselage is scheduled for the third quarter of this year. Production capacity is intended to reach six fuselages per month in 2024. XAT will then fully meet the demand for the Tianjin final assembly line.
 

空客A320机身装配项目在津开工

从空中客车中国公司获悉,由西飞国际航空制造(天津)有限公司承接的空客A320机身装配项目近日在天津港保税区正式开工,这是空中客车与中国航空工业合作的又一里程碑,也是空客在华供应链的进一步拓展。该项目计划于今年第三季度完成首件交付,并于2024年达到设计产能。
 

据悉,该项目旨在为位于天津的空中客车A320亚洲总装线提供完成装配的机身段部件。根据空中客车与中航西安飞机工业集团股份有限公司于2019年签署的合作协议,空中客车A320机身系统装配项目分为前、后机身两个大部件,分别由空客法国和德国(汉堡)工厂完成机身结构装配后海运到天津,由西飞国际天津公司在机身结构基础上完成相关系统件的安装及测试工作。
 

合作协议签署后,在短短18个月时间里,联合工作团队完成了厂房建设、运输渠道测试、多轮次设计评审及验收、升级更新质量体系等工作,确保了项目顺利进行。
 

中国是空客全球供应链的重要组成部分。目前,中国约有200家供应商支持几乎所有的空客民机项目的生产,覆盖飞机的全生命周期。2020年,空客与中国在民用飞机领域的工业合作年度总额约达10亿美元,较2016年增长了近60%。在天津,空客天津A320总装线于2008年启用,是空中客车在欧洲以外的首条飞机生产线,截至2020年12月底,空客天津总装线已完成总装并交付A320系列飞机达到501架。
