For decades, the Farnborough International Airshow has been a leading global platform for the aerospace, defence and space industries, where Airbus presents its latest innovations, products, and services, and reveals new aircraft orders and partnerships.

This year, the show carries an even greater significance for Airbus being the first major event to reconnect in person with our colleagues, partners and media from around the world, enabling business growth and recovery. It is also the first real opportunity to physically showcase Airbus’ ambition to decarbonise aviation.

At this year’s Farnborough Airshow (18-22 July), visitors can experience first-hand how Airbus is pioneering sustainable aerospace for a safe and united world. And in particular for the show’s hosting country - the United Kingdom - how Airbus is committed as a long-term strategic asset and partner to this nation's industrial offering.

This year, the company will host its invited guests at its central 1,880sq m Airbus Pavilion, which includes dedicated customer meeting and hospitality areas, a press auditorium and press lounge and a flying display viewing balcony.

There is also the 500sq m Airbus Tent adjacent to the Static Display with a 250 sq. m exhibition area. Meanwhile at the Airbus Stand, there are various exhibits and a dedicated “Space Zone”, focusing on Airbus’ role as a key enabler within the wider space ecosystem.

In commercial aviation, which connects and unites millions of people each day across the globe, Airbus’ most modern portfolio is spearheaded at Farnborough by the A350 together with the A220 - both of which are featured in the static display. This will be the opportunity to appreciate the common design principles and advantages between the two aircraft families - both being the only new-generation products available in their respective market segments. At Farnborough these two aircraft types are displayed in customers’ livery - ITA A350-900 and airBaltic A220-300 respectively. Meanwhile, in the flying display, the A350-900 MSN002 flight-test aircraft will be put through its paces every day during the week.

In the Static Display, some of Airbus’ state-of-the-art military aircraft will take centre-stage: Visitors will be able to see a Royal Air Force A400M airlifter and the multi-role tactical airlifter C295. Meanwhile, in the Airbus Tent, visitors will be able to study a variety of large scale models such as: The A400M; the solar-powered Zephyr Unmanned Aerial System (UAS); as well as Skynet 6 military communications and OneWeb Internet satellites. A demonstration there will also show how the Multi-Domain Combat Cloud (MDDC) will enhance defence power in the future. Over in Hall 4, at Airbus’ Space Zone, Airbus Defence and Space will also present models of its cutting-edge space systems, including a Skynet military communications satellite and the Aeolus weather satellite.

For its part, Airbus Helicopters offers the full spectrum of solutions for civil, government, military, law enforcement and parapublic uses. From its extensive range of rotary-wing products, visitors to the Static Display will be able to see ‘up close’ the H175M – made in the UK and a ‘super-medium’ class aircraft suited for longer range missions and a multitude of support roles; an H135 - Airbus’ light twin-engined helicopter in a law enforcement configuration; and an H145M full-scale mock-up - a modern and versatile helicopter that offers a wide range of tactical options.

Meanwhile, in the adjacent Airbus Tent there will be scale models of CityAirbus NextGen - Airbus’ electrical vertical takeoff and landing vehicle designed for zero emission flight, the VSR700 – a multi-mission navel unmanned aerial system (UAS) currently under development as well as the NH90 - the modern, multi-role NATO standard helicopter in its tactical transport (TTH) version. Also present are Airbus Helicopters Support & Services representatives who will showcase the new HCare S&S offer, which matches customers to the best combination of services according to their profile and fleet make-up.
