The leading role of Airbus
Within the air transport system
Airbus play a unique role of
integrator:
designing and integrating the
complete architecture
orchestrating the supply chain
integrating technology and sub-
components
being responsible in front of the
end-user and the Authorities for the
global performance, safety, comfort
and certification
in developing ATM solutions to
improve the integration of the
aircraft within the airspace and the
airport and to increase air capacity
This role should be reflected in the structure of R&T
