AIRLINE INDUSTRY INFORMATION-(C)1997-2019 M2 COMMUNICATIONS

Airbus has announced that, in cooperation with its hiring partner AIDT, it is seeking candidates to fill manufacturing positions for Airbus' newest assembly line in Mobile, Alabama, the company said.

The positions are the first wave of production jobs announced for the company's A220 aircraft assembly line. The open positions include aircraft structure/installation mechanics, installers for aircraft cabin furnishings and aircraft electricians.

In addition to the positions for the new A220 production facility, Airbus is also hiring for similar production positions in its current A320 production facility. In total, the company expects to hire approximately 600 new employees over the next 18 months.

The A220 production facility will be located at the Brookley Aeroplex in Mobile, Alabama, adjacent to Airbus' A320 Family production lines and will build aircraft for US-based customers. The assembly line, which will create more jobs and further strengthen the aerospace industry, is part of Airbus' strategy to enhance its global competitiveness by meeting the growing needs of its customers in the United States and elsewhere.
