Our number one goal is the continued safe flight and mission completion of everyone – and everything – that flies aboard an Airbus product: from passengers, flight crew and mission specialists, military personnel, cargo, and humanitarian relief supplies on aircraft and rotorcraft; to satellites and spacecraft that keep the world connected and explore the mysteries of deep space.
Millions of people put their trust in the Airbus brand each year, and we know this does not come lightly. It was earned, and continues to be earned, based on decades of experience and millions of flight hours.
Airbus strives to meet the highest safety levels to support the safe operation of all our aircraft and products. Our dedication to safety and quality is reflected across the company – from design, engineering and production to maintenance, training and support.
