The aircraft manufacturer Airbus has threatened for the case of a disorderly exit of Britain from the EU, again with the relocation of its productions. "If there is a No-Deal-Brexit, we need to meet with Airbus may be very harmful decisions for the United Kingdom," said group chief Tom Enders on Thursday.
This was no empty threat. "All those who doubt this, Airbus could pull off in case of No-Deal-Brexit shops of the UK are wrong." The British aerospace stand now on the precipice.
The German-born Enders added: "Please do not listen to the madness of the Brexiteers, the faith, just because we have big factories, we would not relocate them." It was not possible to shift immediately to other parts of the world. But in the case of No-Deal-Brexit Airbus will divert its investment. There are many countries where Airbus its aircraft could build.
The world's second-largest Aircraft company Boeing employed on the island of 14'000 employees, 6,000 of them in the factory in the Welsh Broughton, where the aircraft wings will be built, and 3000 in Filton in the West of England.
Among other things, analysts had expressed their doubts that Airbus adopted, despite the urgent warning, rushed to the island, because of long lead times in construction, and waiting lists of customers. (sda)
