Alain will be replaced in his current position by Stefan Thomé, 47, currently Head of New Business Models & Services at Airbus Defence and Space. These management changes are effective on 1 April 2019. 

“I would like to sincerely thank Christian Cornille for his outstanding contributions throughout his 30-year career within the Airbus family”, said Bruno Even, Airbus Helicopters Chief Executive Officer. “The expertise of industrial topics that he developed in many management positions at Airbus, Aerolia, then Airbus Helicopters, has been essential to supporting the transformation of our industrial model and delivering new levels of quality and competitiveness. I wish him all the best in his professional and personal future.”
