Airbus Announcement

Earlier today it was announced that a £326m deal to sell 11 Airbus A330 aircraft to airline Garuda Indonesia has gone ahead.

Commenting Jack Lopresti MP said:

"I am delighted at today's news. Last year Airbus had a record year for orders and today's announcement confirms that Airbus continues to go from strength to strength – it's great news for the UK and great news for all those who work at the Airbus site in Filton.

This is the first time a UK Prime Minister has attended a signing ceremony for an Airbus aircraft deal and is a demonstration of the Government's commitment to UK manufactured exports and firms like Airbus. It's a very proud moment for Airbus and for our local area which contributes so much to the aviation industry."
