Gathering pace towards sustainable aerospace

The Airbus Summit 2022 showcased the best in international cooperation and built on the momentum of last year’s event.

The aerospace industry is undergoing a period of rapid change, with advancements being made towards our sustainability commitments, and new technologies transforming the way we look at flight. But these positive steps are contrasted with an ever-complex external environment: war on Europe’s borders, economic instability, and an energy crisis that looks set to bite this winter. 

The Airbus Summit 2022 brought together business leaders, partners, and industry experts to exchange ideas and debate the challenges and opportunities that are transforming our world. 

What has been achieved? What are the challenges that still lie ahead?
