    Airbus announces expansion in Britain

    Avidly anti-Brexit corporation announces major U-turn after previously threatening to leave Britain

    Airbus signaled that it’s ready to move beyond a previously uneasy relationship with the UK over Brexit, saying the future of its British wing plants is secure and pledging to work with the government to expand a business that goes from helicopter maintenance to planetary rovers.

    Chief Executive Officer Guillaume Faury said Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal, which will see Britain leave the European Union on Jan. 31, means the split from the bloc “is at least now for certain,” though the nature of future ties still needs to be worked out.

    The European aerospace giant, which employs more than 13,500 people at 25 UK sites and supports 100,000 supplier jobs, warned under previous CEO Tom Enders that future production might be in doubt as the prospect of a no-deal Brexit threatened to create border delays and inflate costs. Faury said in November that Britain represents a very strong industrial and technical base that Airbus has no desire to leave and his latest comments indicate a further thawing in relations.

    “Airbus is committed to the UK and to working with the new government on an ambitious industrial strategy,” Faury said late Wednesday at a company event in London. “We see great potential to improve and expand our operations in the UK this year.”

    Britain added 2,000 aerospace jobs last year and the government plans further steps to support Airbus and the sector as a whole after Brexit, Business Secretart Andrea Leadsom MP said.



    Almost like it was all empty threats.

    My Uncle worked for them for decades and voted Leave, as did most in the factory. None of them believed a word of it.




    Thoughts?

    Fake news! PANIC! The end of days!

    But seriously.. who didn't see this coming? Guess we're not heading into the third world after all

    Britain held its nerve and sent a clear message to Parliament. @-:Undertaker:-; My dad voted to leave having worked his a*** off for 50 years. We agree to disagree.

    it wasnt an empty threat as he was talking about a no-deal brexit, which at this current time is not happening and if the current gov. is to be believed then there will be a deal - something theyre likely lobbying for and trying to influence
    this isnt an even an announcement of an expansions, just a hope they will get good terms and could expand
