The decision is final.
Airbus has approved plans to construct an aircraft assembly plant in Mobile and will announce the landmark project at a news conference Monday along the city’s downtown waterfront.
The details are astounding: A sprawling, $600 million factory at the Brookley Aeroplex that will assemble A319, A320 and A321 aircraft and employ 1,000 full-time workers at full capacity, according to an internal briefing document obtained by the Press-Register.
