Order Reprints

Groupe Michelin has been chosen to equip the Airbus A380 aircraft with Michelin tires.

Building on its NZG technology, Michelin was able to develop a lightweight tire capable of carrying 33 tons at 378 km/h while achieving an overall reduction of 360 kg in the aircraft's total weight.

The selection is the result of a close collaboration between Airbus and Michelin teams spanning nearly nine years.
