Patria signs contract with Airbus for A320 tail structures

Patria has signed a contract with Airbus for the manufacture of Airbus A320 Vertical Tail Plane components. The agreement covers the re-industrialization activities and the manufacture of the A320 VTP Ribs during the life of the aircraft programme.

"These successful negotiations with Airbus demonstrate Patria's credibility and performance in ever-increasing global competition, especially in Airbus' best-selling A320 Family. Also Patria has invested strategically in the Automated Tape Laying technology earlier this year in order to improve the portfolio of available composite processes," says Petri Hepola, Managing Director of Patria Aerostructures business unit.

Patria's Aerostructures business unit develops and manufactures composite structures for Airbus A380, A330 and A400M aircraft as well as for various Saab platforms and NH90 helicopter programme.
