Powerscourt retained by Airbus as UK communications agency

Powerscourt is proud to announce that it has been reappointed by Airbus to provide strategic communications support across the firm’s UK activities.

This builds on a longstanding partnership dating back to 2015, during which time, Powerscourt has established a strong understanding of the dynamics shaping the group’s business, from the challenges presented by Brexit to the impact of the pandemic on the aviation sector and Airbus’ pioneering work in the area of sustainable aviation.

Airbus has a presence across 25 sites throughout the UK with a UK workforce in excess of 10,500.  It operates across three divisions, Airbus Commercial, Airbus Helicopters and Airbus Defence and Space, all of whom are leaders in their respective markets.

The group is the largest commercial aerospace company in the UK, the country’s largest space business, a world-leader in cyber security, and the biggest supplier of large aircraft to the RAF.  Airbus also represents around 50% of the UK’s civil helicopter fleet and is a key supplier to the Ministry of Defence.

The brief includes corporate communications, campaign support, ESG activation and issues management.

Powerscourt Head of Industrials, James White, said: “Powerscourt has a very strong relationship with Airbus, built up over many years, and we look forward to continuing to advise the business in order to build on the progress we have made to date, working with the team to communicate Airbus’ industry-leading position on a variety of key areas.”
