The Airbus presence in Singapore can be traced back to 1969 when one of its founding companies, Aerrsopatiale, delivered the first helicopters to the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF).

Since that time Airbus has developed strong partnerships in the country, spanning the commercial aircraft defence, space and helicopter markets.

Located at Singapore’s Seletar Aerospace Park, the Airbus Singapore Campus is the regional hub for its commercial aircraft, defence, space and helicopter businesses. It also houses the  Airbus Asia Training Centre (AATC), and the company’s Asia-Pacific spare parts distribution facility, operated by subsidiary Satair.

Commercial Aircraft

Airbus is the leading supplier of commercial aircraft to airlines and leasing companies in Singapore, having sold more than 640 civil passenger aircraft. These include the latest A320neo Family, A330neo, the long range A350 and A380.


H225M RSAF in Marignane


The Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) has been a long-time operator of the Super Puma, and will continue for many years to come. In 2021, the RSAF took delivery of its first H225M helicopter, having signalled its confidence in the platform with a new order several years earlier in 2016. Singapore’s fleet of H225Ms will assume a wide range of roles, including search and rescue, aeromedical evacuation, as well as humanitarian assistance and disaster relief operations.

Singapore operates the new-generation A330 Multi Role Tanker Transport (MRTT) to enhance its air-to-air refuelling capabilities, undertake passenger and cargo transport missions, and support international humanitarian assistance and disaster relief (HADR) operations. The first aircraft was delivered to the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) in 2018. The RSAF was also the  world’s first operator of the A330 MRTT with automatic air-to-air capability.

In the space segment, Airbus supplied Singtel’s first telecommunications satellite that was launched in 1998. Airbus has helped Singapore to become a leader in the near equatorial domain with the TeLEOS-1 and TeLEOS-2 national programmes.



Industrial Activities


Airbus has a major presence in Singapore with several locally incorporated companies that focus on regional customer support, maintenance and training operations.

These include the Airbus Asia Training Centre (AATC), a joint venture owned 55% by Airbus and 45% by Singapore Airlines. This began operations at the Seletar Aerospace Park in 2016, and is now  the largest Airbus-operated flight crew training centre in the world, with 10  full-flight simulators.
