  • We are limited to the Airbus A380 visit. It allows you to take a tour of the site dedicated to the construction of this type of devices and observe the construction site. Prior booking is required in advance (limited) by phone or by internet.

  • We have lived in the area for over 17 years and know quite a bit about Airbus and their planes but this tour was REALLY interesting, well done and informative. Great to see the Beluga land as we were ...  read more »
  • I was so eager to visit the Airbus factory, but it was such a disappointment and a rip off! I tried to book the tour of the factory + the A380 assembly line tour in English as my partner doesn’t speak French and it is basically impossible to have them both tours in English on the same day. They have them scheduled in such way that if you want them in English, you need to go in two separate days. Therefore, we had to take both visits in French. I was there on June 22nd, 2016. I stayed at the city center and it is not that easy to get there on public transportation. The tram takes about an hour from Jean Jaurès Station to Beauzelle-aeroscopia Station (line T1) and then you have to walk for another 20 minutes. Uber charged us 35 Euros. The guide was friendly, polite and knew her script quite well. Duration of visit: 1h30, each tour, on a bus. No, you don’t get off the bus at all! A380 Assembly line Actual time at the A380 Assembly line site: 30-40 minutes shared in two different balconies (one inside the A380 hangar overlooking the planes behind a glass and the other one overlooking the runways with the planes in the distance supposedly having external tests). This is as close as you will get to the aircrafts. In the glass balcony the guide would run several videos about the A380 assembly, testing and painting processes (the very same you see on YouTube). Then, you are taken to the other balcony overlooking the airport. Nothing else is visited and no photos are allowed at all. The rest of the time is spent on the bus and at Aeroscopia Museum where they put you in a fake telemetry room simulating the real one and they run once again some videos (the same you see on Nat Geo channel). Suddenly, the tour is over. Nevertheless, you do get a brochure as a souvenir…! ¬¬ I reaaally thought we would see much more… Airbus Factory Tour You spend the entire tour on a bus, overlooking the hangars from the outside and having a look at aircrafts from the distance (A320, A330, A350). You get to see some aircrafts standing on the runways or parking spots and the guide fairly explains why they are standing there. You don’t get to see any facility from the inside. We were really lucky to catch a Beluga and it added some excitement to the tour. The guide pointed at the distance the A320, A330, A350 hangars and that’s all you get. This is why I think it is such a scam, waste of money and time and a huge disappointment. I expected more. It doesn’t worth what you pay.
  • not worth it. Kinda waste of time and money. Very short excursion to actual site, you not actually allowed there, and it is about 15 min from locked balcony behind glass. Not even photo allowed!!! And practically that is it. The rest is just bla bla bla. Do not believe to photos posted here, you will not see it from inside of site. Do not go, save money
  • I did the A380 tour, while it was not the most extensive tour you still got a nice view of the factory and a very knowledgeable guide. Be sure to check out the aerospace museum that's in the same place. It has some cool planes in it such as the first production prototype Concorde.
  • I have been through the Boeing tour, which I felt was more comprehensive than this one, since we were able to view the assembly process from multiple angles. This one is certainly different and the plane built here is much larger. Still interesting albeit procey
  • Cool place I will definitely go back
