Airbus threatens to withdraw gradually from the UK if the Brexit is carried out without agreement


PARISUpdated:

The President of Airbus, Tom Enders, urged the United Kingdom on Thursday to clarify its position on the Brexit and warned that if the departure of the European Union were made without agreement that could lead him to move his activity to other countries.

Enders stressed, in a message released by the European giant of aeronautics and defense, that "they are wrong" who say that, as Airbus has large factories in the United Kingdom, they will stay there "forever".

While he admitted thatit is not possible to take those factories "immediately", the aerospace sector is a long-term business and Airbus "may be forced to redirect future investments in the case of a Brexit without an agreement," he said.

"There are a lot of countries that would love to build wings for Airbus planes," he added, referring to the main activity the company has in British territory.
