What we do
Airbus is an international pioneer in the aerospace industry. We are a leader in designing, manufacturing and delivering aerospace products, services and solutions to customers on a global scale. We aim for a better-connected, safer and more prosperous world.
We make it fly
A commercial aircraft manufacturer, with Space and Defence as well as Helicopters Divisions, Airbus is the largest aeronautics and space company in Europe and a worldwide leader.
Airbus has built on its strong European heritage to become truly international – with roughly 180 locations and 12,000 direct suppliers globally. The company has aircraft and helicopter final assembly lines across Asia, Europe and the Americas, and has achieved a more than sixfold order book increase since 2000.
Designing the future of flight
Innovation has always been a driving force at Airbus, which promotes cutting-edge technologies and scientific excellence to contribute to global progress. Through its predecessor companies, Airbus pioneered many of the technologies that helped conquer the skies and are now part of everyday life.
Airbus encourages its industry-leading experts to push their boundless imaginations, moving the company into the Industry 4.0 era and inventing new possibilities for the future of flight: from manned and unmanned vehicles for urban mobility, to hybrid and electric propulsion systems for cleaner aviation.
Shareholder investments and joint ventures
Airbus is a shareholder of the missile systems provider MBDA and a major partner in the Eurofighter consortium. It also owns 50% stakes in ATR, the turboprop aircraft maker, and Airbus Safran Launchers, manufacturer of the Ariane 6 launcher.
Airbus is managed by the Board of Directors and the Executive Committee. Airbus' Corporate Governance ensures that Airbus is managed according to our Regulating Laws and Articles of Association, and evolves in order to match our growth ambitions, meet our obligations and reach the goals we set ourselves. Our Governance strives to be a transparent body, matching the expectations of the Company’s shareholders throughout the world.

Who we are
At Airbus, we believe that it’s not just what we make, but how we make it that counts. We are convinced that our customers, investors and the communities we are working with not only ask us to create products, jobs and shareholder returns, but to promote responsible, sustainable and inclusive business practices and act with integrity.
Principles in practice
We conduct our business ethically, based on Airbus values, and in compliance with all laws and regulations. Furthermore, we strive for a culture of integrity in our people, partners and suppliers. To this end, we have established a dedicated Ethics & Compliance programme and organisation, to ensure that ethical and compliant behaviour is deeply embedded throughout the company, supported by our Standards of Business Conduct – our Code of Conduct and Integrity Principles. We have an enhanced anti-corruption policy and have conducted more than 160,000 awareness trainings in the past three years alone.
What we stand for
Six core values lie at the heart of Airbus, and these help us define not just “what we do” but “how we do it”. They are our foundation and help our employees identify with our company. Nearly 55,000 Airbus employees participated in defining our values: We are one/teamwork, integrity, customer focus, reliability, respect and creativity.
An inclusive culture
More than 130 nationalities make up the Airbus workforce and over 20 languages are spoken in our company – reflecting the diversity of the world we live in and customers we serve. For example, Airbus activities notably promote gender balance, social equality, intergenerational collaboration, while ensuring an inclusive environment for everyone. Take a look at all our different faces here.
For example, the company supports the UN Women’s Empowerment Principles and the UN Standards of Conduct for Business for lesbian, gay, bi, trans and intersex people, and has developed the GEDC Airbus Diversity Award, which aims to highlight projects that have encouraged more young people of all profiles and backgrounds to study and succeed in engineering. Airbus also fosters engagement and a strong leadership culture.
At Airbus, it’s everyone’s responsibility to bring our inclusive culture to life, and an Employee Resource Group (ERG) called Balance for Business is supporting an even more diverse workplace.
