It’s official: Eurocopter is now Airbus Helicopters

The rebranding of Eurocopter as Airbus Helicopters took effect yesterday, putting to bed a 21-year-old brand and aligning the company more closely with the global Airbus name. Airbus Helicopters joins Airbus and Airbus Defence & Space within the new Airbus Group.

Guillaume Faury, President of Airbus Helicopters, says the firm will both benefit from and enrich the Airbus brand: “This rebranding works hand in hand with our ongoing transformation, which is now bolstered by the Airbus brand’s strong foundation in innovation, quality and industrial excellence. Both of these together will serve our ambition of setting the industry standard in terms of safety, mission capability and performance for our operators around the world.”

While the company’s website has changed to, the new branding hasn’t yet affected the naming and designations of Airbus Helicopters’ products, and Airbus Helicopter says its staff can still be reached at their Eurocopter email addresses.

Airbus Helicopters is the world’s No.1 helicopter manufacturer with a turnover of 6.3 billion euros and a staff of about 22,000. It says its fleet in service includes about 12,000 helicopters operated by more than 3,000 customers in about 150 countries.
