Making flight possible

Airbus makes the freedom of flight possible by designing, manufacturing and supporting the world’s best aircraft. Its people around the globe are united by a passion for aviation, as well as their desire to create better, more efficient ways for airlines and passengers to fly.

The company – a division of Airbus Group – helps shape the future of air transportation and drives sustainable growth around the world. Based on a deep understanding of ever-changing market needs, Airbus pioneers technological solutions and seeks the most efficient sourcing and manufacturing possible – so airlines can grow and people can connect.

Airbus’ comprehensive product line comprises highly-successful families of aircraft ranging from 100 to more than 500 seats: the single-aisle A320 Family (including A320neo, the best-selling aircraft in aviation history); the widebody, long-range A330 Family (including the A330-200 Freighter, plus the recently-launched A330-800neo and -900neo); the new-generation A350 XWB Family; and the flagship A380.

A global presence

While headquartered in Toulouse, France, Airbus truly is “at home” all over the world. The company has expanded upon on its strong European roots to move forward on an international scale with fully-owned subsidiaries in the United States, China, Japan, India and in the Middle East; spare parts centres in Hamburg, Frankfurt, Washington, Beijing, Dubai and Singapore; training centres in Toulouse, Miami, Hamburg, Bangalore and Beijing; and more than 150 field service offices around the world.

To be even closer to customers, Airbus also is actively developing engineering, manufacturing and service capabilities in Europe, China, India, Russia, the Middle East, Singapore and the U.S. 

Global diversity is a key enabler of Airbus' innovation strategy, highlighted by the multi-cultural workforce of more than 58,000, which includes over 100 nationalities from every region worldwide. With many different perspectives, the company can draw on a deeper pool of ideas and approaches in order to find better ways to fly.

Highly competitive on every level

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

To this end, Airbus has grown its aircraft 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 increased global footprint. Additionally, Airbus' ambitious product policy ensures it stays ahead of the competition with continuous improvement. 

Airbus also has become a more integrated company, working towards one common culture across its global workforce, as well as aligning processes and planning with the global supplier base.
