Airbus SE plans to invest between 500 million euros and 1 billion euros (£837 million) this year on its A220 passenger jet programme, Chief Executive Guillaume Faury said on Thursday at the company's A220 factory in Mirabel, just outside Montreal. Earlier in February, Airbus raised its stake in the A220 programme - known as Airbus Canada - to 75% from 50.1% after teaming up with the government of the Canadian province of Quebec to buy Bombardier's 33.5% stake. With the deal, Bombardier exited the civil aviation industry and bolstered the European planemaker's position in its ongoing competition with U.S. rival Boeing Co .

Debt-laden HNA Group has restructured jet orders with Europe's Airbus in a compromise deal that includes an order for dozens of A330neo jets, two people familiar with the matter said, amid reports of a wider shake-up at the Chinese conglomerate. Airbus last month announced a surprise order for 40 of its A330neo wide-body aircraft, worth $12 billion at list prices, but the buyer's identity was kept under wraps. The sources said the order, dated Dec. 23, came from HNA Group airlines and reflected efforts already in place to carry out a restructuring of fleet plans that would see some previously unfulfilled jet orders fall by the wayside.
General Electric forecast Q1 cash-flow "pressure," citing the still-grounded Boeing 737 Max jet. It's also reportedly seeking more work with Airbus.
The aircraft maker said its Airbus Defense and Space division had entered consultation with the company's European works council on the planned cutbacks. The group has also taken a 1.2 billion euro ($1.3 billion) charge on the worsening sales outlook, with a German ban on defense exports to Saudi Arabia causing Airbus Defense and Space to lose a promising potential customer, Dirk Hoke said. Airbus Defense and Space, formed in 2014 as part of a broader restructuring, employs 34,000 staff - 13,000 of them in Germany - and contributes around a fifth of revenues to parent group Airbus.
One airplane maker's misery is another's potential fortune. So it could well be, not just for Airbus SE but also for jet-engine maker General Electric.
TriMas' (TRS) alliance with Airbus supports its growth strategy to boost global customer base in commercial and defense aerospace applications.
General Electric is reportedly in talks with Airbus as the engine maker's other big customer, Boeing, continues to face headwinds over the grounded 737 MAX.
Kuwaiti lawmakers agreed on Wednesday to set up a committee to look into whether Airbus's aircraft orders from the Gulf Arab state involved alleged corruption, the state news agency reported. Governments and airlines around the world have launched their own investigations after Airbus on Jan. 31 reached a record $4 billion settlement with prosecutors in Britain, France and United States over alleged bribery and corruption stretching back more than a decade. In Kuwait, a three-member parliamentary committee has been tasked with reviewing Airbus orders and is to submit a report of its findings to the National Assembly within three months, KUNA reported.
Washington state lawmakers on Wednesday introduced bills in the state’s senate and house proposing the end of a business rate tax break for aerospace companies that has saved Boeing more than $1bn since 2004. The move threatens to nullify Brussels’ argument to the World Trade Organization that Boeing continues to benefit from illegal state aid — the basis on which the right to impose tariffs was expected to be granted later this spring.

Higher revenues from rental of flight equipment drive Air Lease's (AL) fourth-quarter 2019 results. However,increase in operating costs is a concern.
In response to a recent World Trade Organization (WTO) decision that allowed the U.S. to impose retaliatory import tariffs on $7.5 billion of EU goods, the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) will raise the duty on imported EU aircraft from 10% to 15%, effective March 18. The WTO first authorized the U.S. tariffs in an Oct. 2 decision involving a dispute over subsidies that various European countries provide to commercial aircraft manufacturer Airbus. "The United States remains open to a negotiated settlement that addresses current and future subsidies to Airbus provided by the EU and certain current and former member states," USTR said in a Federal Register notice expected to be published this week.
Paris prosecutors took the driving seat in the international investigation armed with a new set of anti-corruption laws introduced in 2016. Last month, the Toulouse-based aircraft maker signed the historic three-way agreement with French, UK and US prosecutors to draw a line under more than a decade of corruption involving bribes, fraudulent contracts and fake invoices that boosted the company’s profits by up to €1bn over the course of its wrongdoing.
(Bloomberg) -- Terms of Trade is a daily newsletter that untangles a world threatened by trade wars. Sign up here. The U.S. said Friday it will increase the tariff rate imposed on aircraft imported from the European Union to 15% from 10% on March 18.The move is part of a long-running spat in which the U.S. has sought to penalize the EU for offering illegal subsidies to Airbus SE that harmed American aircraft maker Boeing Co.The U.S. Trade Representative said in the statement Friday that it is leaving duties on certain other European goods such as Scotch and French wine at 25% and will make minor changes to the previously released product list.The U.S. is deploying a trade tactic known as carousel retaliation, whereby governments periodically shift duties and tariff rates on different groups of goods in order to increase pain and uncertainty for exporters. On Oct. 18, Washington imposed the original 10% duties on Airbus aircraft and 25% tariffs on a range of European consumer exports, like cheeses and Spanish olives.The U.S. list continued to spare an Alabama Airbus plant that assembles single-aisle aircraft like the A320 by not hitting airplane parts. But the higher tariffs will hit wide body Airbus models not assembled in the U.S. and mean higher prices for those models for U.S. airlines that have orders on the books.Both Boeing and Airbus have pushed U.S. and EU officials to try and reach a negotiated settlement.The European Commission, the EU’s executive arm, said that is what it was aiming for as well.“In our view the focus now should be on finding a negotiated solution to the aircraft disputes on the basis of the concrete EU proposals for existing subsidies and future disciplines in this sector,” spokesman Daniel Rosario said in an emailed statement.Fifteen years ago, the U.S. filed a dispute against the EU’s subsidies for Airbus, and the EU filed a counter-suit shortly thereafter. The WTO has subsequently ruled that both the U.S. and EU were guilty.The dispute came to a head last fall when the WTO said the U.S. could legally impose tariffs on $7.5 billion of European exports in retaliation for illegal government aid to Airbus. The award was the largest in WTO history -- almost twice as large as the previous record of $4.04 billion set in 2002.At the time the U.S. held off on penalizing certain luxury goods like cognac and handbags, with administration officials saying their goal in imposing the duties was to persuade the EU to negotiate a settlement.But a transatlantic trade peace has proved elusive and U.S. officials say the EU’s overtures have been unacceptable.The U.S. Trade Representative subsequently launched a review of its tariffs and sought input on whether it should remove some products from the October list of tariffs; increase duties on certain goods on that list up to 100%; or impose levies on additional products not included in the October list.“The longer these disputes are unresolved, the greater the threat of even more tariffs on our industry,” the Distilled Spirits Council of the United States said in a statement Friday. “The EU has stated it may impose retaliatory tariffs this spring on U.S. rum, vodka, and brandy in its parallel case at the WTO concerning Boeing.”(Updates with EU reaction from seventh paragraph.)\--With assistance from Kim Chipman and Aoife White.To contact the reporters on this story: Bryce Baschuk in Geneva at firstname.lastname@example.org;Jenny Leonard in Washington at email@example.com;Shawn Donnan in Washington at firstname.lastname@example.orgTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Brendan Murray at email@example.com, Ana Monteiro, Margaret CollinsFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
European aerospace group Airbus said on Saturday it deeply regretted the U.S. decision to increase tariffs on aircraft imported from the European Union and said it would hurt U.S. airlines and their customers. Airbus also said it hoped Washington would change position once the World Trade Organization authorises the EU to impose tariffs on Boeing aircraft, including the 737 MAX, 787 and 777 aircraft in May or June.
The head of the defense business of Airbus said he would start talks with labor representatives next week on job cuts, as the German-based group retrenches following setbacks with its A400M military transporter. "We will enter the first talks soon with the European works council," Airbus Defence and Space chief Dirk Hoke told Reuters in an interview cleared for publication on Saturday, adding that negotiations would then take place at national level. The group has also taken a 1.2 billion euro ($1.3 billion) charge on the worsening sales outlook, with a German ban on defense exports to Saudi Arabia causing Airbus Defence and Space to lose a promising potential customer, said Hoke.

The office of the US trade representative made the announcement late on Friday, in a move that will irk Brussels and hurt Airbus, the pan-European aircraft maker. The decision not to proceed with higher tariffs on the broader set of goods will be greeted with relief in Brussels and EU capitals, containing the damage to the transatlantic relationship as officials on both sides of the ocean try to negotiate a more meaningful trade pact.
The U.S. government's decision to raise tariffs on European-built aircraft will hit U.S. airlines already facing a shortage of aircraft and complicate efforts to reach a negotiated settlement with the European Union, Airbus said. The European planemaker said it would continue discussions with its U.S. customers to "mitigate effects of tariffs insofar as possible" and hoped the U.S. Trade Representative's office would change its position. "USTR's decision ignores the many submissions made by U.S. airlines, highlighting the fact that they – and the U.S. flying public – ultimately have to pay these tariffs," the company said in a statement.
