Airbus has officially opened its new integrated campus in Singapore. The inauguration was hosted by Christian Scherer, Airbus Chief Commercial Officer, Head of International and Member of the Airbus Executive Committee, in the presence of Chan Chun Sing, Minister for Trade and Industry for the Republic of Singapore.

Speaking at the event, Christian Scherer said: “The new campus in Singapore reflects our ongoing commitment to our presence in key regions. From Singapore, we can connect more easily with customers and other stakeholders across Asia and the Pacific, acting swiftly to meet their needs. This is especially important during these challenging times.”

Located at Singapore’s Seletar Aerospace Park, the new campus covers an area of 51,000 square metres. It is an expansion of an existing site, housing the Airbus Asia Training Centre (AATC), a joint venture between Airbus and Singapore Airlines, and the company’s Asia-Pacific spare parts distribution facility, operated by Airbus subsidiary Satair.  

New facilities at the campus include offices serving as the company’s regional hub for its commercial aircraft, defence, space and helicopter businesses. In addition a second Satair warehouse has increased storage volume and capacity by over 70%.     

Also located at the campus is the new South East Asia operation for the Airbus digital services platform Skywise. In addition to supporting Skywise customers, the team based in Singapore will be involved in exploring potential partnerships with start-ups and other technology providers in the region. 

Additionally, the campus will be home to a branch of the global Airbus Leadership University, providing training and tailored development programmes for company employees. When operational, the Singapore facility will be second in Asia, complementing an existing centre in Beijing, and will offer courses to employees based at Airbus offices across the region.
