Serving airlines across the Americas
Airbus has a major presence in the North American market, with its family of jetliners becoming the aircraft of choice for all types of airlines in both the U.S. and Canada – from major carriers and cargo airlines to the new generation of low-cost operators.
A high-profile U.S. presence
Airbus’ U.S. activity is headquartered in Herndon, Virginia near Washington, D.C. and the company’s 24-hour spares center also is in Virginia, at Ashburn. The Airbus engineering design center in Wichita, Kansas works on programs that include the A380, while the Mobile, Alabama engineering facility is responsible for various interior elements of Airbus' newest aircraft, the A350 XWB.
The company’s southernmost U.S. site is the $50-million Airbus Training Center in Miami, which houses a full range of full-flight simulators, trainers and computer-based training programs. Airbus' U.S. footprint will be expanded with a new A320 Family production facility in Mobile, which will build A319, A320 and A321 jetliners beginning in 2015.
