About Airbus

Airbus SE is one of the world's largest aircraft manufacturing companies, formed in the late 1960s through the merger of several European aircraft manufacturers. It produces passenger, cargo and military transport aircraft under the Airbus brand.

Although the company is considered a "European" aircraft manufacturer, legally it is a French legal entity headquartered in Blagnac (a suburb of Toulouse, France). In 2001, it was united under French law into a joint stock company or "S.A.S." (Société par Actions Simplifiée).

Airbus Group (called EADS until 2014) is Airbus' sole shareholder. Until October 2006, the British BAE Systems owned 20% of the shares; this stake was bought by EADS for €2.75 billion.

Guillaume Faury was appointed Airbus Chief Executive Officer (CEO) in April 2019 and leads the Company’s Executive Committee.
