Need some info on the logistics between the 16 Airbus plants in Europe.
- Anyone able to provide me with the network the Belugas are flying?
- Which routes is the "Ville of Bordeaux" (the A380 part-carrying ship) serving?
- Between which plants/airports is the Airbus Corporate Shuttle flying, and which carriers operate it?
Anyone able to provide ressourceful links, and/or contacts on can ask for some details?

Belugas fly into Hamburg, Bremen, Toulouse and probably other airports in UK, Spain,...
A380 parts are being manufactured in Saint-Nazaire (France), Broughton (UK), Cadix (Spain) and Hamburg (Germany). Some parts of the landing gears are being manufactured by sub-contractors in Tunisia, and in that case lorries cross the Mediterranean on ferries to Marseille-Sete, Genoa or Barcelone, and then to Toulouse.
A fluvial vessel goes between Pauillac and Langon (Gironde/France).
