Project Details


Within the Australia Pacific region, Airbus is one the most well-known suppliers of advanced helicopter solutions and Maintenance Repair and Overhaul (MRO) services to both Defence and Civil clients. Building upon this heritage, Airbus is seeking to grow its space portfolio in Australia and New Zealand by integrating the capability and skill of local industry. Airbus acknowledges the strategic importance of Australian Industry Capability, and is committed to ensuring Australian companies and academia have the opportunity to partner in meaningful and sustainable ways with the largest space company in Europe and one of the world’s leading communication satellite companies.

Complementing its industry engagement roadshows events across Australia, Airbus is now seeking expressions of interest from Australian organisations. This may lead to one-on-one discussions with Airbus to identify specific local workshare opportunities in the pursuit, delivery and support of space related opportunities.
