The aircraft manufacturer Deutsche Aircraft has submitted its building application for the final assembly of the D328eco aircraft on the premises of Leipzig / Halle Airport. The approval of the Saxon building authority is expected by December and the groundbreaking is planned for the second half of 2022.
With the construction of the final assembly line in Leipzig, Deutsche Aircraft will make an active contribution to stimulating the regional economy by creating up to 300 new jobs at the location and supporting the development of the Saxon aerospace industry. Decisive
for the success of the project is the support from the funding program “Improvement of the regional economic structure”, GRW for short, of the Federal Ministry of Economics.
“The cooperation with Leipzig / Halle Airport enables us to build at an ideal location in the heart of the European Union and to use the extensive experience of the airport in the aerospace industry. In addition, we are proud to make a contribution to promoting the economy in the region, ”said Nico Neumann, Vice President Operations and Programs at Deutsche Aircraft.
“Central German airports will be the birthplace of a state-of-the-art aircraft. For us this is something special emotionally. We could hardly bring a more suitable industry to the site to further develop our location qualitatively. The D328eco is a passenger aircraft that should be part of the future in its class as a fast and environmentally friendly regional aircraft. The location is once again sending out an important signal of innovation: work and the environment go hand in hand, ”adds Götz Ahmelmann, CEO Mitteldeutsche Flughafen AG.
