Airbus has repeatedly reiterated its commitment to Portugal by investing in Portugal’s regional industrial and business footprint most recently through Airbus Global Business Services and Airbus Atlantic Portugal. This engagement will continue to bring mutual benefits to both Portugal and Airbus in the next few years, notably by creating additional domestic jobs across the sector. Airbus continues to increase its footprint as supply chain, sourcing, engineering and hiring activities grow. Over the last 3 years, Airbus has been expanding its cooperation with Portugal, identifying new areas of work to build on. The strong development of the activities in the country have allowed Airbus to increase the overall investment in Portugal to 16 % over the last 4 years.
