Airbus is a global leader in aeronautics, space and related services. In 2019, it generated revenues of € 70 billion and employed a workforce of around 135,000. Airbus offers the most comprehensive range of passenger airliners. Airbus is also a European leader providing tanker, combat, transport and mission aircraft, as well as one of the world’s leading space companies. In helicopters, Airbus provides the most efficient civil and military rotorcraft solutions worldwide.
(EDITOR’S NOTE: The above figures show that a single product line, the A320neo, accounts for 81% of the Airbus backlog, with the other four product lines sharing the remaining 19%.
This shows that, while the A380 and A350 have been touted for their technical innovations, the decision to re-engine the A320 family is what really underscores the company’s success.)
