Chief Executive Officer Airbus

These half-year results reflect the commercial aircraft deliveries, our focus on cost containment and competitiveness, and the good performance in Helicopters and Defence and Space. Although the COVID-19 pandemic continues, the numerous actions taken by the teams have delivered a strong H1 performance. This enables us to raise our 2021 guidance although we continue to face an unpredictable environment. We are now working to secure the A320 Family ramp up while transforming the industrial set up. Furthermore and following Board approval, we are enhancing our product line with an A350 freighter derivative, responding to customer feedback for increased competition and efficiency in this market segment

Registered shareholders

What does it mean to be an Airbus registered shareholder?

Being a 'registered' shareholder means that Airbus is aware of your personal details, including your name. If you hold your Airbus shares through a financial intermediary, you can transfer them into the 'registered form*' and consequently be identified by Airbus. Registered shares accounts are divided into two categories:

  • Direct registered shares: your shares are held and managed directly by Airbus. So you can enjoy many advantages and services. Société Générale Securities Services has been commissioned by Airbus to provide 'registered share' services on behalf of Airbus and is your contact for the management of your Airbus shares.
  • Administrated registered shares: your shares are held and managed by your financial intermediary but are also registered with Airbus. You get some advantages without changing your intermediary and your financial intermediary remains your contact for the management of your Airbus shares.

* Your financial intermediary may charge a fee for the transfer of your shares into registered form. To find out details, you should contact the relevant intermediary.
