Airbus officials say the company has delivered its first aircraft to be produced in the United States.

Officials say employees at the company's manufacturing plant in Mobile, Alabama, presented the Airbus A321 to JetBlue on Monday.

CEO John Leahy said in a statement that delivering the first aircraft after breaking ground on the facility three years ago is an amazing accomplishment and a testament to teamwork throughout Airbus and in Mobile.

Officials say there are nine other A320 family aircraft in production and Airbus plans to deliver four per month from Mobile by the end of 2017.

Airbus is based in France and operates facilities throughout Europe, America, Asia, Australia and the Middle East.
