Airbus Group



The winds of dwindling demand have buffeted the world’s second largest plane-maker. Low oil costs have persuaded airlines to stall upgrading their fleets to newer, more fuel-efficient models this year. The trend has adversely affected jet manufacturers, like Airbus and its century-old American rival Boeing. The French company set out with the expectation of reaching 650 orders by year-end. (Last year it sold more than 1,000.) By the time of the midyear Farnborough airshow—typically a sales extravaganza—Airbus had booked 380 orders, leaving a short runway to realize its goal. At the beginning of the year, the company opened Airbus Ventures in Silicon Valley, a $150 million venture capital arm that invests in technologies related to drones, satellites, security and big data.
