Toulouse: Welcome to “Airbusville”!

The southern city of Toulouse’s long romance with the aviation industry began already in 1918, when France’s famed airborne postal service airlines, Aéropostal, set up its headquarters in the area. Since then, Toulouse has been a centre for the plane development sector, now housing also Airbus, which employs 30,000 people there. The Airbus site is a real beehive of activity, much resembling a city of its own, with its own traffic wardens, public transport, restaurant and even high school.
