How The Beluga Has Helped Airbus Grow

Below Is a video recently posted on the Airbus Youtube channel. It provides a great insight into why air travel was initially used for transporting their parts from all over Europe and how it’s progressively changed from the 1960’s to 2017 with the New Beluga XL.

What are your thoughts on it and are you surprised that Boeing played a part in this effort?

For more information take a look at the website below:

Hope this was interesting to you all.

It helps them growing every day, as it is their most efficient way to carry their aircraft parts all over Europe.

Interesting how they’re making the Beluga XL using the A330 as a “base” plane. Doesn’t look too different except for the winglets. I hope they don’t retire the old ones though.

Wasn’t it the A300 that was used as the base plane though?

No. The Beluga XL is based on the A330, hence the “XL”…🙄

Yeah if you see the link it says they will operate alongside each other in order to meet the step up in production.
