Final Assembly Of First A320neo Begins

Final assembly of the first A320neo is underway. The forward and aft fuselage sections are being joined up at Airbus’ final assembly line in Toulouse, France. The sections recently arrived from St. Nazaire, France and Hamburg, Germany respectively. Airbus said that once this phase is completed, the next stage will be the wing to fuselage join-up. It takes about one month to complete the final assembly of an A320 family aircraft. The first flight of the A320neo is scheduled to take place in Q4 2014, with first delivery in Q4 2015.
