It has been a landmark week for both China and Airbus when the first A320 (above, having its first flight) to be assembled in the country was delivered to its customer on Tuesday and began operations with Sichuan Airlines on Wednesday.
For China, it shows the world that it can manufacture an aircraft that meets the highest standards desired by a global aerospace giant like Airbus.
For the EADS subsidiary, it is an important step towards capturing half of China’s airline market – Airbus now has around 40% market share. The Tianjin assembly plant is one way of being close to the customer.
These are challenging times for the global airline industry, but Airbus and China remain optimistic about the prospects for China’s airline industry.
