Airbus Logistics

Tue Oct 26, 2004 4:18 am

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?

Regards and thanks in advance

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).
