Airbus Office Industrial Footprint
Airbus has had a permanent commercial office in the region since 2000. In 2006 Airbus established a substantive permanent commercial presence in the region and opened the Airbus Middle East subsidiary in the Dubai Airport Free Zone.
The subsidiary covers all the commercial aspects for the region – sales, marketing and contracts. Also present are permanent representatives from Airbus’ Customer Support team. Co-located with the airline commercial team is the Airbus Corporate Jet commercial team.
Airbus has a significant industrial presence in the Middle East and North Africa through agreements and partnerships for production capabilities across several countries such as the United Arab Emirates, Tunisia and Morocco. It also includes training support and development of engineering capabilities, as well as research and development
Major aerostructure assemblies, composites components, sub-assemblies, metallic detail parts and electrics for all Airbus products are produced in the region. This is facilitated not just by Airbus, but also through partners such as Sogerma and Aerolia, and the extended Airbus supplier network.
Through such a partnership we also provide Education and Training support, directly with placements in Airbus or indirectly via Air Business Academy.
Airbus is proud to be a strategic partner of many countries in the region. Airbus industrial presence in the Middle East and North Africa brings benefit to the local economy and the local populous. This also gives advantages to Airbus which gets passed on to the customers and the consumers.
