With 15,000 employees at the Finkenwerder, Stade and Buxtehude sites, Airbus is the largest industrial employer in the metropolitan region of Hamburg. With 50 percent of all single-aisle deliveries (30 per month from 4 final assembly lines), Hamburg is known as the “home” of the Airbus A320 family. For the long-haul aircraft A350, large parts of the CFRP fuselages and wings are assembled here. For the “flagship” A380, the cabin installation, painting, and the majority of deliveries take place here. All Airbus tail units are manufactured at the Stade plant. In addition, Hamburg is the leading competence center for cabin development.
