In late 2017, Airbus was awarded the contract for the Türksat 5A and 5B telecommunication satellites, which are based on the latest Electric Orbit Raising (EOR) version of its highly-reliable Eurostar E3000 platform. The company continues along its path to become an integral part of the Turkish space industry by supporting various projects. Indeed, Airbus is uniquely positioned as a potential partner with the future Turkish Space Agency, able to open the door to the European Space Agency with perspectives encompassing research, development and commercial opportunities.
Airbus considers Turkey a strategic industrial partner and is committed to long-term, mutually-beneficial industrial cooperation through the placement of work packages that include technology transfers. Such transfers help build skills and competencies in the country’s aviation industry.
Airbus’ Global Market Forecast for 2018-2037 predicts that over the coming 20 years, passenger traffic to, from and within Turkey will more than triple. Airbus is extremely well-positioned to meet this demand with its eco-efficient, modern aircraft families, and Turkish aerospace companies are equally well-positioned to benefit from this growth through long-term industrial partnerships with Airbus.
Technology transfers and the expansion of Turkey’s aviation industry know-how underpin Airbus’ long-term commitment to the country.
