Additional Information

Airbus, Europe's largest producer of commercial and military aircrafts and helicopters, announced it will create 800 to 1000 new jobs at its production site in Hamburg.

Airbus aims to significantly increase its production by 2025 and therefore plans to hire 800 to 1000 new employees by mid-2023. After being drastically reduced during the Corona pandemic (Airbus 2020 - DE), production is now expected to gradually increase again, reaching a record 75 A320 Family aircraft in 2025.

In total, Airbus currently employs 21450 people in civil aircraft production at its German sites. Airbus has already rehired 700 permanent employees and around 1,400 temporary workers last year and this year. Hamburg is the second largest Airbus location after Toulouse, France.
