Our culture

Airbus is a high-performance environment. But performance isn’t just about what you achieve: it’s also how you achieve it. That’s why we have ‘theAirbusway’: a set of guiding principles that underpin a company where everyone shares common values and behaviours.

We all strive to live ‘theAirbusway’. But that doesn’t mean we are all the same. Far from it. We encourage individuality. We want people to bring their own style and different ways of thinking. That’s how we overcome the most challenging of obstacles.

All our people have energy, dynamism and creativity, as well as a deep-rooted interest in aviation and the ability to work across geographical and professional boundaries. We truly believe that the Airbus culture is unmatched in any other organisation.
