Airbus delivered today its 7,000th aircraft, an A321, to US Airways, from the Airbus facility in Hamburg, Germany.

The 1,000th Airbus delivery was an A340-300 that went to Air France in 1993. Airbus’s 5,000th aircraft, an A330-200, was delivered to Qantas in December 2007. The 6,000th Airbus was an A380 which was delivered to Emirates in January 2010.

“It’s particularly fitting that our 7,000th aircraft is an A321 going to US Airways. The airline not only operates the largest fleet of Airbus aircraft in the world; with over 220 A320 Family aircraft flying in US Airways colors today, they also operate the largest fleet of our best-selling, eco-efficient A320 Family,” said Tom Enders, Airbus President and CEO.

Aircraft belonging to Airbus’s A320 family are in use by more than 340 airlines and operators worldwide.

Headquartered in Toulouse, France, Airbus is owned by EADS, a global leader in aerospace, defence and related services. This group - which is comprised of Astrium, Cassidian and Eurocopter, in addition to Airbus - has a presence on every continent, and employs a total workforce of more than 119,000.
