to Aero-notes issue 45, the Airbus Investor Relations & Financial Communication's newsletter for individual investors.

In our last issue, the newly announced partnership with Bombardier on the C Series programme was still fresh in our minds. Now, we are delighted to share that Airbus has obtained all regulatory approvals for the closing of the partnership to be effective from July 1, 2018.

In other news, Airbus released its Q1 2018 results at the end of April. The Q1 financials reflect the engine and delivery phasing, and the 2018 guidance was confirmed. Watch Harald Wilhelm, CFO Airbus, talk about the highlights of Q1 2018 and the priorities for the rest of the year.

In this edition we will have a closer look at innovation—past and future. Keep reading to learn about:

 CIMON, the new crew member on the ISS,
 the 50th anniversary of the Fenestron, a breakthrough leap in innovation, and,
 an update on Skywise, our open data platform helping airlines all over the world.

Last but not least the Airbus Top Management including Tom Enders, Airbus CEO, signed the Airbus Responsibility & Sustainability Charter earlier this year. We take this opportunity to also highlight some activities that foster both innovation and responsible business. We look forward to hearing your views.

Thank you for your interest.
Kind Regards,

Julie Kitcher
