Hafei Airbus Composites Manufacturing Centre, Airbus's joint venture in China, has become the world's only supplier of composite structural components for the A350 XWB series of wide-body aircraft.

The Harbin-headquartered firm is also the exclusive manufacturer of rudder skins for the single-aisle A320 series and will assemble 80 percent of these components for the planes, state-owned news agency Xinhua reported yesterday.

With a fleet of around 1,750 Airbus jets, China is the Netherlands-based planemaker's largest commercial market worldwide and is an important industrial partner for the firm, with Airbus contracts there reaching USD640 million in 2017.
