Video - Airbus Group’s new headquarters inauguration: an extract

- By

On this day, 28 June, Airbus Group officially inaugurated their new headquarters. A more than twelve-acre site (five hectare) situated close to the city’s airport runways and the Airbus assembly lines. Called "Wings Campus" the complex will host 1,500 of the European group’s employees by the end of this year.

The ceremony was attended by some 150 journalists and guests, amongst whom were the families of several european aviation pioneers. The new campus roads bear the names of Concorde’s first French woman test pilot, Jacqueline Auriol, Spanish industrialist, José Ortiz-Echagüe, founder of the aircraft manufacturer CASA, and the second German woman captain, Melitta Schenk Gräfin von Stauffenberg.

The Chairman and CEO of Airbus Group, Tom Enders, paid tribute to them in his speech, saying that without their dedication and bravery, a day such as this would not have been possible.

    What a concept. An aircraft company putting their headquarters next to their production. How every old fashioned ;-)
