AKKA, soon to become Akkodis, cements its position as a major partner of Airbus, a leading aircraft manufacturer, following its selection in a recent call for tender process (JECO). This builds upon AKKA’s recognition as a Global Preferred Engineering Supplier under the Airbus EMES3 (Engineering, Manufacturing Engineering and Services Strategic Suppliers) program granted earlier this year.
This engineering system bundle (JECO) includes several technical fields on which AKKA has been working alongside Airbus for many years, as well as new ones essential to the full development cycle of the next generation of aircraft. In particular, the Group’s expertise in Electrical flight, Hydrogen, Artificial Intelligence and certification has been recognized by Airbus, the much-needed skills to make the future of aviation autonomous and decarbonized. With this multi-year contract, Airbus renews its confidence in AKKA as a preferred partner for its innovation challenges.
Stephane LATIEULE, SVP Aerospace & Defense said:” We are delighted to be extending our longstanding partnership with Airbus. I want to thank Airbus for their continued confidence in the skills of our engineers.
