Airbus Group (EADS) - revenue worldwide by region 2021
Airbus is part of the multinational Airbus Group SE. With its headquarters in Toulouse, France, the division supplies airlines from all over the world with commercial aircraft. In the United States, legacy carriers like United Airlines or Delta Air Lines and even low-cost carriers like JetBlue or Spirit Airlines have at least an Airbus aircraft in their fleet. Besides airlines, cargo operators like Federal Express (FedEx) or United Parcel Service (UPS) are using Airbus’ aircraft for running their operations. However, the largest share of revenue comes from Asia Pacific, where even more air carriers chose Airbus as their aircraft manufacturer. In 2020, Airbus delivere 566 aircraft worldwide and received 383 orders. The division focuses on manufacturing narrowbody aircraft like the A320 family, or widebody commercial aircraft like the A380. The Airbus A380 is Emirates’ favorite, with 1123 aircraft ordered.
The Airbus-Boeing duopoly
Over the past two decades, the global market of commercial aircraft has been mainly dominated by two major players in the aerospace industry: Airbus and Boeing. The Boeing Company is also one of the largest defense contractors, its Defense, Space and Security division generating more than 26 billion U.S. dollars in revenue.
