The fuselage join of the MSN2 progresses as scheduled in the FAL.

In Toulouse Final Assembly Line, work continues on MSN2 on which cabin modules have been delivered the first week of June. After the fuselage sections arrival, join-up started last week and the test installation of the Cockpit Door Module and of a zone 1 galley (next to the cockpit) was also successfully conducted.

This is the first time fit-checks have been done so early, thanks to a very good work upstream with Cabin 0 and PMU (Physical Mock Up) teams in Hamburg and with interior suppliers.

Indeed, if cabin activity is just starting on the test aircraft, a lot of work has already been done on scale 1 mockups in Toulouse and Hamburg, as well as on other cabin pre-validation tools developed by Airbus and its suppliers.
