EADS Not Envisaging to Withdraw from A400M Programme

(Amsterdam, January 23, 2009) -- There is no discussion within EADS about a scenario to withdraw from the A400M programme, contrarily to what has been circulated in the press. Over 6,000 persons are presently working actively on the programme inside EADS, and there are ongoing discussions with OCCAR and the customer governments, the aim of which is to establish the right frame that will enable the best achievement of the programme. This aircraft will be the best in its category, with outstanding specifications and no alternative programme in competition on the world market.
