Housing 1500 employees, the new campus is located at the heart of Airbus’s production and engineering facilities.
At the same time, Enders reflected on Europe’s successful aviation heritage during the inauguration event by stressing the link between early pioneers and what is today Europe’s largest aerospace company. In presence of a number of high ranking guests such as the Prefet of Languedoc-Roussillon-Midi-Pyrenées Region, Pascal Mailhos, the Mayor of Blagnac, Bernard Keller, and the Mayor of Toulouse, Jean-Luc Moudenc, Tom Enders unveiled street signs on the campus bearing the names of a number of famous pioneers.

The opening of the new Campus concludes the Headquarters move that the Group had initiated in 2013. It led to the sale of sites at Munich (Unterschleisheim) and Paris (Montmorency), the proceeds of which were used to fully finance the new campus in Toulouse Blagnac.
