CONNECTING THE WORLD

Airbus makes the freedom of flight possible by designing, manufacturing and supporting the most modern and comprehensive jetliner family on the market today.

Made up of aircraft ranging from 100 to 600-plus seats, it includes the single-aisle A320 Family, which is civil aviation’s best-selling product line; the widebody, long-range A330 Family; the next-generation widebody A350 XWB; and the flagship double-deck A380.

Airbus has grown its jetliner product line to offer a complete solution that is highly competitive on every level – reinforced by the company's expanded service offer, as well as its global presence. Additionally, Airbus’ ambitious product policy ensures it stays ahead of the competition with continuous improvement.

LEADING THE WAY

Airbus is a top-performing enterprise – but never stands still. To fulfil its potential, the company must be constantly improving to meet changing customer needs and passenger desires.

Since its inception, the company has played a pioneering role in the international air transport industry’s evolution. This trend will continue over the coming decades, as Airbus leverages innovative solutions to further improve the economic efficiency and environmental performance of commercial aviation.

A GLOBAL FOOTPRINT

With more than 170 locations on five continents, Airbus truly is at home all over the world – having expanded upon the company’s strong European roots to move forward on an international level. This growing “footprint” positions Airbus to strengthen its market share during the years to come, while remaining a leader in commercial aeronautics.

Though European “by birth,” Airbus is the most culturally diverse aerospace and defence company on the planet. Its global footprint is reflected in the diversity of the company’s staff and skills, with employees outside Europe more than doubling in the last five years. The trend for internationalisation is set to continue: Airbus estimates that 84 per cent of its future revenues will come from outside of the European Union.
