Shanghai subsidiary of China National Aero-Technology Import and Export Corporation (CATIC) has announced it would import 12 to 16 butterfly wing-box trailers from Airbus in the coming years.

The imported trailers will be used to transport China-made ARJ short-haul plane series and jumbo jets such as A320, according to the CATIC Shanghai subsidiary.

The trailers will be used first at the Airbus 320 assembly line based in Binhai New Area of Tianjin and the market prices of the trailers are at about 100 million yuan (about 12.5 million US dollars), the company said.

The company has already imported one such trailer which was used to transport the first Airbus A319 wing box made in China.

And the wing box was placed for delivery late last month to Airbus by Xi'an Aircraft Company (XAC), a subsidiary of China Aviation Industry Corporation I (AVIC I).

The wing box, which will be dispatched to the Airbus site at Broughton in Britain for system equipping, is the largest Airbus aircraft component ever produced by a Chinese aviation manufacturer.

The wing box has been brought to Shanghai from Yanliang, northwest China's Shaanxi Province, and will be loaded onto a ship from Shanghai for Britain next Monday.
