Airbus SE will add a new assembly line at its base in Toulouse, France, to boost production of the fast-selling A321neo narrow-body jet.

The facility will open by mid-2022 on the site of Airbus’s A380 superjumbo line, which will be vacated as the double-decker ends production.

The European planemaker has faced an order frenzy after offering “stretch” versions of the A321 featuring a higher passenger capacity and increased flight range. The production move comes as Boeing Co.’s rival 737 Max model remains grounded after two fatal crashes, with no date yet set for its return.
