Airbus (EPA: AIR) is a European multinational aerospace corporation and a global leader in aeronautics, space, and related services. It is headquartered in the Netherlands and operates in over 180 locations worldwide. Airbus was officially created as a GIE (groupement d'intérêt économique/economic interest group) in 1970 with France’s Aerospatiale and Germany’s Deutsche Airbus each taking a 50% stake. It was listed on the Paris Stock Exchange in 2000 and reached USD 100 billion in market capitalization for the first time in February 2019. Airbus generated EUR 65.5 billion (~USD 71 billion) in revenue in 2023.

Airbus operates through three segments: Airbus, Airbus Helicopters, and Airbus Defense and Space. The Airbus segment focuses on the development and manufacturing of commercial jet aircraft and aircraft components as well as on aircraft conversion and related services. It offers aircraft of various families including civil aviation’s best-selling product line, A320. The Airbus Helicopters business unit focuses on both civilian and military helicopters as well as on offering services linked to helicopters. Global commercial and governmental clients are served by the Airbus Defense and Space business, which offers systems and services for air, land, sea, space, and cyber missions.

The company claims to be the most diverse international aerospace and defense company and generated ~39% of total revenue in Europe, making it Airbus’ largest market. Airbus expects to ramp up the delivery, attaining a monthly production of 14 A220 aircraft, 75 A320 aircraft, and 10 A350 aircraft in 2026 and four A330 aircraft in 2024.
