Safety Roadshows

At Airbus, we aim to achieve a “zero accident culture”, which applies to everyone impacted by our business – our employees, our suppliers, our communities, and our customers. Airbus has several collaborative initiatives that contribute to reinforcing and enhancing safety, including Safety Roadshows.

During the safety roadshows, our Safety Team presents the latest safety topics and human factors training in an open environment, designed to encourage discussion among operators, pilots and maintenance teams.

Roadshows are available to any operator regardless of type of Airbus aircraft operated – the focus is on safety. To book a safety roadshow, contact us.
