Our daily work is about more than just dialogue. The Federal Government is one of Airbus' most important customers in the aerospace and defence sectors. On top of that, we rely on political support in many of our businesses around the world, be it export issues or key markets like China.
Due to the diversity of our products and services, the Berlin Airbus Hub is in contact with more than 150 specialist departments in ten federal ministries as well as the Chancellery. Added to this are the deputies of the German parliament Bundestag and the federal states where Airbus has sites. The Berlin office also has a branch office in Bonn for important dialogues with the Rhine region (“Rheinschiene”).
Last but not least, Airbus in Berlin also supports our Brussels colleagues on important EU issues.
