Airbus is showcasing its latest commercial and military product range at the 50th international Paris Air Show at Le Bourget from June 17th to 23rd, 2013. The latest innovations from the EADS Group will be on display and experts will be available to answer questions.

Throughout the show, EADS human resource experts will hold a series of career workshops and events for students and attendees considering a future in the aerospace industry. Commercial announcements will also be made during the week.

An A400M (soon to be delivered to the French Air Force) and British Airways’ soon to be delivered first A380 will take the centre stage during the first few days of the show, followed by Airbus’ own flight test aircraft later in the week. Both aircraft types can be viewed on static and flying displays throughout the week. Watch out for the launch of the new A380 advertising campaign “Own the sky”.

Various commercial aircraft will be delivered to customers during the show including Sharklet equipped A320s, an A330, and the 100th Airbus Military C295. An Airbus ACJ318 which has the widest and tallest cabin of any business jet will also be on static display.

A full life size A350 XWB cockpit and cabin section can be walked through at the EADS pavilion. Here visitors can experience the latest EADS group innovations that are shaping the future of aviation. This includes an e-Concept Plane, the latest ideas for silent aircraft taxiing, reduced emission flights and sustainable new energies. The latest developments in new energies can be viewed at the dedicated “Alternative Fuels” pavilion. Models of current EADS group wide products are on display at the EADS stand.

    The British Airways A380 looks great - I wonder where they will fly it to.

    The routes they're saying (at the moment) for them are Heathrow to Los Angeles and Heathrow to Hong Kong.
