The figure represents a jump from a monthly rate of about 50 for the narrow-body planes right now and the 65 targeted for the middle of 2023, and comes as demand recovers from the coronavirus crisis, the European company said Wednesday. It will construct a new U.S. assembly line to help meet the goal.
