Airbus Outgrows Its European Home - Bloomberg
The company’s airliner business employs more than 53,000 people across Europe. And of the 11,000 passenger jets Airbus has built since it was founded in 1970, all but 400 have come out of the region’s factories. Europe, however, accounts for fewer than 1 in 5 planes in Airbus’s order book, and China, the U.S., and other countries are clamoring for a bigger share of production reflecting the size of their markets—an idea Airbus has hinted it might accept.
