Airbus to increase production, create jobs in Mobile

Airbus Mobile

European aircraft manufacturer Airbus said its Gulf Coast expansion will build new facilities and add 275 jobs in Mobile.
In their Thursday announcement, the company said the construction will cost $40 million. They plan to increase A320 aircraft production to seven per month by 2021.
This move comes amid a tariff dispute involving Airbus. In December, a World Trade Organization panel ruled that the European Union has not complied with an order to end illegal subsidies to the company. The Trump administration imposed nearly $7.5 billion worth of tariffs on EU goods in October.
