About Airbus

Airbus is a global leader in aeronautics, space and related services. In 2017 it generated revenues of € 67 billion and employed a workforce of around 129,000.

Airbus is a leading aircraft manufacturer with the most modern and comprehensive family of airliners on the market, ranging in capacity from 100 to more than 600 seats. We champion innovative technologies and offer some of the world’s quietest and most fuel-efficient aircraft.

Today, Airbus consistently captures about half of all commercial airliner orders. Our comprehensive product line comprises highly successful families of aircraft, which include: A320neo, the best-selling aircraft in aviation history; the all-new next generation A350 XWB Family; and the double-deck A380. Across all our aircraft families our unique approach ensures that aircraft share the highest commonality in airframes, on-board systems, cockpits and handling characteristics. This significantly reduces operating costs for airlines. We also seek to ensure that air transport continues to be an eco-efficient means of transport, delivering economic value while minimising its environmental impact.

Airbus is Europe’s number one defence and space enterprise, as well as being among the top ten global defence businesses and the second-largest space business in the world. We are a global leader in terms of innovation too. We invest more than €3 billion in research and development each year. We also foster a culture of collaboration between different teams, divisions and countries, which helps bring fresh perspectives to our business and enables us to generate better ideas. Recent examples of ground-breaking technology we have developed include our Aerial Refuelling Boom System (currently the most advanced refuelling system available), our GAIA spacecraft, which will be creating a 3D map of the entire galaxy, and our SPOT satellites, which provide images for Google Maps and Google Earth.

As the world’s No.1 helicopter manufacturer, Airbus provides the most efficient civil and military helicopter solutions to our customers, who serve, protect, save lives and safely carry passengers in highly demanding environments.

Our people work with passion and determination to make the world a more connected, safer and smarter place. Taking pride in our work, we draw on each other’s expertise and experience to achieve excellence. Our diverse teams propel us to accomplish the extraordinary – on the ground, in the sky, and in space.

Are you ready to build on our heritage of industry firsts?

We are proud of everything we have achieved at Airbus. By enabling customers to move, protect and connect people globally, our products have changed – and are continuing to change – the world. If you have passion and a pioneering spirit, you could help shape the achievements that come next.
