Airbus, along with other multinational aerospace companies, have long-term options on where to place future work packages. We therefore continue to work closely with industry, particularly through the Aerospace Growth Partnership, to ensure the UK continues to remain a globally competitive environment for investment in aerospace. The launch of a new Sector Deal for Aerospace on 6 December – with up to £125m additional funding for a Future of Flight Challenge – is the latest example of this work, helping create the right conditions for the continued success of the UK Aerospace industry.
