Visit of the Airbus A380 final assembly line

Following several demands, the CP'2016 social program will include an optional visit of the Airbus A380 final assembly line, a massive facility that provides a space of 150,000 square metres for the flagship double-deck jetliner.

For security reasons, this visit will be limited to a maximum of 100 participants. Participation will be subjected to screening and filtering by Airbus security, requiring participants to submit a copy of their passport beforehand. We are working with Airbus to offer participants a "VIP" visit, on the ground of the assembly line, close to the planes being assembled.

Relaxed visit of downtown Toulouse

To satisfy all tastes, the CP social program will also offer a relaxed visit of downtown Toulouse. The ubiquitous presence of full bricks is exemplified in exceptional buildings such as the romanesque Basilique Saint-Sernin. English speaking guides will lead you through the city and let you enjoy the city during lazy breaks on the terraces of cafés, in front of the Garonne river.
