Airbus was established in 1970 as an European consortium
of French, German and later, Spanish and U.K companies .
The two full partners in the original consortium were
Aerospatiale for France and Deutsche Aerospace for
In 1971 CASA of Spain became a full member of the GIE.
(GIE moved to Toulouse in 1974.)
In 1979 British Aerospace became a full partner.
Airbus’ first aircraft, the A300B, was launched at the 1969
Paris air show.
1974, the A300 had been certified on budget and ahead of
1975, Airbus had 10 per cent of the market and a total of
55 aircraft on order.
1979, Airbus had 256 orders from 32 customers and 81
aircraft in service with 14 operators.

AIR BUS STRUCTURE
Current Market Situation for Air
1) Effects of Economic recession
Economic Growth ( GDP) is the prime driver of demand.
Fares are another Important Driver. Low cost “no frills” carriers are
2) Aftermath of September 11th, 2001
Affected Travel habits 0f Americans.
Airfreight traffic – historically more
volatile then passenger Traffic.
Current Demand for Air Travel:
Huge Demand for Single Aisle 100
Seaters Such As (A 318’s etc)
Ever Expanding Route Network.
Hub System Replaces Point to Point
2) High Demand for Double Aisle Wide Bodies ( A 340-500 / 600)
Few Asian Destinations Will Support Direct Intercontinental
b) Evolving Service patterns will require a
variety of Complementary Aircraft
types (A 340,500/600)
Demand for Super Jumbos (A-380)
a) Hub to Hub Transportation.
b) Huge Capacity ( 35 % larger then
747) with comparatively low Operating
Costs Drive the Demand for A-380 over
Global Market Forecast for Airbus
Worldwide demand for air transport will grow strongly
Travel growth will vary widely between
Airlines will significantly improve
The numbers of seats and dedicated
freighter lift capacity will more than
The numbers of departures offered on
existing and new.
passenger routes will increase by
The airlines will offer more seats per
The active passenger fleet will increase by
more than 80% from the current fleet of 10,900
to 19,732 by 2020.
36% of the current passenger fleet will be
retired from active commercial service.
To accommodate traffic growth and renew their
fleets, the airlines will take delivery of 15,181
new passenger aircraft .
North American airlines will take the largest share of
passenger aircraft deliveries, yet their share of world
seats will be overtaken by that of airlines in Europe
The active world freighter fleet will grow to
3,338 aircraft with an average lift capacity of
55.6 tones from 1,540 aircraft with an average
46.9 tones capacity at end 2000.
The 15,887 new passenger aircraft and
freighters to be delivered during the next
twenty years represent a business volume of
approximately $1.5 trillion*
(2002 catalogue prices)
Wide bodies will increase their share of
the world fleet
Expected Demand for Passenger Fleet till 2020
10,201 aircraft in the 100-, 125-, 150-, 175- and 210-seat
categories, where Airbus has already established a
strong and diverse customer base with the advanced
and efficient A318, A319, A320 and A321;
3,842 aircraft in the 250-, 300-, 350- and 400-seat
categories, where the twin- and four-engine members
of the A330/A340 family offer an unmatched
combination of efficiency and freedom from
operational restrictions, and;
1,138 very large aircraft in size categories above 400
seats, where following the most successful civil
aircraft launch campaign in history the all-new fouraisle A380 will enter service in 2006.
Demand for Freight Fleet
Demand for Basic Feeders ~ 956
Demand for Regional Freighters ~1231
Demand for long Range Freighters ~ 377
Demand for Large Freighters ~ 774
