Airbus warns no-deal Brexit could spark ‘very harmful decisions’ - 3 weeks ago, 10:55

By: Agence France Pres ...

, LONDON, United Kingdom, Jan 24 – Airbus chief Tom Enders warned Thursday that a no-deal Brexit could prompt the European aerospace giant to make “very harmful decisions” for Britain, and branded the government’s handling a “disgrace”.

The aircraft manufacturer currently employs 14,000 people in Britain, including sites at Filton in southwest England and Broughton in north Wales, designing and manufacturing wings. Another 110,000 British jobs are linked with the group’s supply chains.

“If there is a no-deal Brexit, we at Airbus will have to make potentially very harmful decisions for the UK,” Enders warned in a video published on the group’s website.

Airbus, which has repeatedly stated that Brexit could mean pulling investment out of Britain, also expressed deep frustration over Prime Minister Theresa May’s faltering Brexit strategy.
