Airbus is expanding ramp-up capacity with a new automated A321XLR equipping hangar, officially opened today. With this, Airbus continues its modernization and digitalization of its industrial system, expanding capacity for the rate ramp-up in the A320 program to 75 in 2026.
What does this mean? Airbus can now work on eight rear fuselages simultaneously. The stations in the new hangar were planned in close consultation with the employees to create both an efficient production flow and an ergonomically optimized and modern working environment. In addition, the interior design also focused on ensuring optimal conditions for cooperation between the employees in production and the supporting functions.
