Airbus to launch sustainable aviation hub in Singapore, focus to include UTM

Airbus has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB) to facilitate the establishment of a Sustainable Aviation Hub with a specific focus on technology, research and innovation. The hub will be hosted within Airbus’ Singapore Campus in Seletar Aerospace Park.

Included in the key areas of development, unmanned traffic management projects are set to benefit from design, development, and the test and validation of sustainable next-generation aviation technologies and best practices in the industry, says the press release.

Under this MOU, both parties intend to enter into discussions to facilitate Airbus’ establishment of the Sustainable Aviation Hub in Singapore. The Hub will bring together aerospace professionals, researchers, and innovators to create a collaborative environment that promotes research and development aimed at building a robust and environmentally sustainable aviation ecosystem. The Hub will focus on the following key areas of development:

  • Decarbonising aviation
  • Maintenance, services and operations
  • Air traffic management and unmanned traffic management.

A priority for the Hub is to work in close collaboration with the local enterprises, universities and research institutions to facilitate knowledge exchange, talent development, and joint research initiatives. A comprehensive talent development programme will also be established to nurture local aerospace professionals, researchers, and innovators through internships, training courses, with and joint programmes drawing the support of Airbus’ global research teams.

The longstanding collaborative relationship between Airbus and EDB which started nearly two decades ago, is a driving force behind this joint commitment to support the Sustainable Aviation Hub launch in the city-state.
