Airbus has reported that the A350 XWB appearance at the 2014 ILA Berlin Air Show has had the dual role of spotlighting Airbus’ newest jetliner and underscoring the company’s important industrial, engineering and research ties to Germany.

 

With nearly 30.000 people working directly for Airbus and its owned subsidiaries in Germany – including some 4.000 specifically involved in the A350 XWB’s development – the country is continuing key contributions that trace their roots to Airbus’ cornerstone A300 jetliner, according to President and CEO Fabrice Brégier. Nearly 40% of the company’s engineering workforce of approximately 12.500 engineers is located in the country.

 

German Chancellor Angela Merkel was among the thousands of guests to visit the Qatar Airways Airbus A350 XWB at the recent ILA Berlin Air Show.
