49th International Paris Air Show Le Bourget

June 17, 2011

Air Liquide will be present to this 49th edition from June 20 to June 26

A privileged partner of aviation

Buoyed by its experience in the field of air gas separation technologies, Air Liquide, a major partner of the civil and military aviation for over 20 years, offers innovative solutions to improve the aircraft availability and safety.

Its expertise in on-board oxygen generating systems allows the Group to develop new applications. Air Liquide technologies implemented for OBOGS in particular (Oxygen Generating Systems to supply oxygen to pilots and passengers) meet our customers’ new expectations for ground applications. New systems, specifically designed to meet critical situations, have been developed.

This year, on Air Liquide's booth, the Group will introduce a new prototype, the EVASAN, an autonomous oxygen generator dedicated to mobile missions and that can equip medical helicopters or ambulances for medical emergencies. Visitors will also discover the applications of an oxygen production container that can ensure the total autonomy in oxygen of a field hospital.

A historic partner of the space adventure

Air Liquide’s key contribution to the Ariane program, as well as its expertise in on-board cryogenics for large international space projects (ISS, Planck, Herschel, etc.) and for the development of the future European launcher, strengthen its leading position and confirm its commitment to the programs of today and tomorrow.

The Group constantly innovates and pushes technological boundaries to anticipate and meet institutional and industrial needs.
