Airbus plans major presence at Paris Air Show 2017

07.06.2017Exhibition

At the Paris Air Show, which runs from 19th to 25th June 2017, Airbus will showcase its wide range of innovative technologies, products and services, from market-leading commercial and military aircraft to helicopters and space systems.

In addition, there will be a new Digital Exhibition zone at the Airbus pavilion (located at the end of Chalet Row A), where traditional mock-ups give way to the latest digital immersive and interactive display technologies to convey an improved experience of Airbus' products and services, in life-like virtual reality scenarios.

In the static display areas, visitors will see a plethora of Airbus' real operational and development aircraft. Notably, this year's show will be the first time that Airbus showcases publicly in the flying display its new A321neo and also the latest member of the A350 XWB family - the A350-1000. Both of these new models are currently well into their certification flight testing phases. The flagship A380 will also feature in both the static and flying displays.

Airbus, which plans to recruit nearly 3,000 people in 2017, will be present throughout the week at the "Avion des Métiers" and "Forum Emploi Formation" areas dedicated to careers, training and employment in the aerospace industry. In addition, the company will formalise several partnerships with research centres, schools and universities to ensure that in the coming years, industrial and academic requirements converge, and provide the skills which it needs to continuously innovate.
