Abstract

Airbus Commercial aircraft, known as Airbus, is a European aeronautics manufacturer with headquarters in Blagnac, in the suburbs of Toulouse, France. The company, which is 100% - owned by the industrial group of the same name, manufactures more than half of the airliners produced in the world and is Boeing's main competitor. Airbus was founded as a consortium by European manufacturers in the late 1960s. Airbus Industry became a SAS (simplified joint-stock company) in 2001, a subsidiary of EADS renamed Airbus Group in 2014 and Airbus in 2017. BAE Systems 20% of Airbus between 2001 and 2006. In 2010, 62,751 people are employed at 18 Airbus sites in France, Germany, the United Kingdom, Belgium (SABCA) and Spain. Even if parts of Airbus aircraft are essentially made in Europe some come from all over the world. But the final assembly lines are in Toulouse (France), Hamburg (Germany), Seville (Spain), Tianjin (China) and Mobile (United States). Airbus subsidiaries are also located in the United States, China, Japan and India. Airbus produced its first aircraft, the A300, in 1972 and offers a range of commercial aircraft ranging from the A318 to the A380, as well as aircraft and aircraft for business men and women. Airbus was the first manufacturer to install an electric flight control system on the A320. In 2013, Airbus produced 626 aircraft and won 1,503 net orders. This is the best commercial result in the history of aeronautics. At the beginning of 2017, Airbus announced that it had broken its own record of deliveries with the production of 688 aircraft this year, thus becoming No. 1.
