Our success stories

Technological advances – in composite materials, aerodynamic design and durability – are making it possible to imagine and design changes in the airframe that reduce fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. The result is a new breed of aircraft – such as the Airbus A320neo – that are more efficient, more reliable and greener.  

The airframe is the aircraft’s main structure – both its skeleton and its skin. It ensures the integration of all the aircraft’s systems and enables it to withstand the various forces experienced during flight, guaranteeing the comfort and safety of passengers and crew alike.

Sustainable innovation 

Developing and certifying a new airframe is a long-term process. While studies are underway to produce hydrogen and electrically powered aircraft, these won’t be ready, in the most optimistic scenarios, before 2035. In the meanwhile, it is crucial to improve the performance of current fleets and limit their ecological impact. Innovations such as digital…
