About Airbus

The United States is one of the world’s largest markets for civil and military aircraft, helicopters and space activities. More than just a marketplace in which to sell, the U.S. has long been a valued industrial partner to Airbus. Since 1990, Airbus has spent some $200 billion dollars with hundreds of U.S. suppliers – $48 billion in the last three years alone. That spending helps support 275,000 American jobs. That business also makes Airbus the largest export company for the U.S. aerospace industry.
