Passenger aircraft

Airbus jetliners have become the preferred aircraft for passengers and operators around the globe. From low-cost carriers to full-service airlines, and from short-haul to many of the longest routes worldwide, Airbus aircraft fly on every continent. There’s nowhere they can’t go. 

The company’s product line of passenger aircraft is characterised by the highest standards of comfort, unrivalled economics and supreme versatility. Airbus’ A320 Family is the undisputed leader in the single-aisle category; while its twin-engine A330 family aircraft can cover long-range requirements. As the largest aircraft in Airbus’ product range, the double-deck A380 has introduced an entirely new way of travelling, introducing a variety of key innovations that have changed the aviation industry.   

The A350 XWB epitomises Airbus’ more than 30 years of experience and expertise in shaping the future of air travel. By creating an aircraft family that meets market requirements for size, range, revenue generation, passenger comfort and the environment, Airbus has delivered a new-generation passenger aircraft that is at the pinnacle of modern aviation.

CONSISTENT ON COMFORT

Airbus aircraft offer more personal space to passengers no matter where they sit. From wider seats and a roomy cabin to the latest generation of in-flight entertainment and elegant lighting options, passenger comfort is at the heart of Airbus’ business. Whatever the distance, Airbus goes further to ensure passengers can arrive at their destination feeling relaxed and energized.

The new A330neo (new engine option) is the launch vehicle for the “Airspace by Airbus” brand, which along with the A350 XWB begins a new family of Airbus cabins

AT THE CUTTING-EDGE OF INNOVATION

Continuously striving to develop new technologies, Airbus is a world leader in the modern aviation industry. Helping it stay at the forefront is the introduction of new systems, materials and designs that improve the quality and efficiency of aircraft to benefit everyone – from the passengers to airlines, pilots and cabin crew.

COCKPIT AND CABIN COMMONALITY

Cockpit and cabin commonality allows pilots to train on, operate and transfer from one aircraft to another with even greater ease. In addition to reducing expenditure on training, Airbus has helped to minimise maintenance costs throughout fleets by prioritising commonality throughout its product line. The consistency of design even extends right through the cabin with the familiarity of the design, allowing crew to work more efficiently on every Airbus aircraft that they fly.

EFFICIENCY THAT HELPS THE ENVIRONMENT

Airbus’ dedication to creating the most efficient and reliable aircraft available on the market has resulted in improvements to technology that help reduce fuel burn and emissions – diminishing the environmental impact of air travel wherever possible while also reducing costs. Doing everything possible to diminish the negative environmental impact of air travel also extends to the production process. Airbus’ dedicated team adopts a holistic approach, thinking of the environmental effect of the aircraft’s full life cycle from its design and inception through to its recycling and reuse.

ENDURING QUALITY

A testament to the quality and longevity of the aircraft that Airbus produces, many previously-produced Airbus products continue to be in service around the globe. By incorporating the highest levels of passenger comfort into Airbus’ cost-effective products, customers throughout the world remain profitable and successful.
