Airbus is asking suppliers to get ready for a further 18% increase in A320-family jet output during 2022, on top of existing targets for 2021, as airlines ready for a partial return to normal travel.

Airbus aims to produce a composite wing that could be deployed on an upgraded version of the A320 series — dubbed the A322. The Assembly of the first demonstrator is set to start in the next few weeks and wrapped up in 2023. Modifications of the stretched A321 could also include bigger engines and likely cost in excess of €4 billion.

Airbus sought to dampen speculation about an upgrade to its A321neo single-aisle model, saying “there is no such thing” as a proposal to build what some media have dubbed an A322 with more seats and newer wings.
