Collins Aerospace Systems has delivered its the 1,000th nacelle for the A320neo program, delivering the 9,000th V2500 nacelle, and continuing to support the ramp-up of the A220 nacelle program.

The relationship with Airbus, which now spans 45 years, dates back to the A300, the first Airbus aircraft. The milestones achieved are due to the strong collaboration and hard work from both companies.

“This celebration and the work we do with Airbus goes far beyond today. Teams across our worldwide sites are working with pride and commitment to provide on-time delivery and quality, and ensure that our relationship with Airbus remains strong for years to come,” said Jim Pollock, Collins Aerospace vice president of Airbus Programs.

“We’re now integrating A320neo engines with our advanced nacelle systems on three continents and continuing to introduce new manufacturing innovations — such as robotic painting systems and advanced fastening tools — to meet the increasing global demand for air travel.”
