AIRBUS OPERATIONS France CLOSE

Airbus is currently one of the largest manufacturers of civil aircraft in the world. Powerplant integration design is based in Toulouse where Airbus FR is located. As the value of the Airbus business has increased, due to the successful sales of aircraft into the global market, so too has the competition for design and manufacture of the major aircraft structures and systems
Airbus Fuel & Inerting Systems Domain are the lead for all Airbus Group Companies for Fuel and Additive clearances and approvals.
In order to meet future environmental targets it is necessary to consider fuels from alternate pathways. Airbus have supported a number of flights using bio or other synthetic fuels and have contributed to the approval of the 5 synthetic fuel pathways.
Airbus will bring this overall expertise in the field of fuel properties and their impact on the Overall Aircraft Design to this project.
