According to Financial Times Germany Airbus has started the assembly of the first A320s in Hamburg.
The aircraft will be delivered end of April or in the beginning of May. It is planned to build 10 A320s in Hamburg this year.

Any idea who will get the first Hamburg build A320 ? Would be nice if it is Lufthansa or Air Berlin !!


It will forever be a McDonnell Douglas MD 80 , Boeing MD 80 sounds so wrong

So all four A/C in the A320 family will be built in Hamburg! What aircraft will take over the fcurrent A320 production line in TLS? I also heard that Airbus are planning to build the A320 in China.


SAS Plus is Business Class made faux!

Nothing. They'll keep on building it there. Also building A320s in HAM simply enables Airbus to increase production of the most popular member of the A320 family.

Additional interesting points from the article:

  • Production in Hamburg is in the context of a planned production increase from 32 in 2007 to 36 in 2009, possibly up to 40 planes a year at a later time
  • A320 series production will take place in Toulouse, Hamburg, and Tianjing, China in the future
  • Article mentions a "successor to the A320", which will also be manufactured in Hamburg, starting in the "second half of the next decade"
  • In the long term, Airbus production could be split so that the widebodies are mostly built in Toulouse, while the narrowbodies are mostly built in Hamburg



Am I cured? Slept 5 hours on last long-haul flight...

CN 3456 Shenzhen Airlnes (test reg D-AVVA)
CN 3479 JetBlue
CN 3503 Virgin America
CN 3516 Air Berlin
CN 3529 International Lease Finance Corporation. Was to be leased to Vueling but not taken up.
CN 3597 Go Airlines
