Government picks EADS for air tanker talks
Jan 28th, 2004 at 2:57pm
 
The government has put off a decision on a 13 billion military jet programme, selecting a consortium led by Airbus parent EADS for further talks but dropping one led by arch rival Boeing.

"The MoD will now enter into detailed negotiations with AirTanker," the Ministry of Defence said in a statement on Monday, adding the talks could take months.

AirTanker Ltd had proposed new or a mix of new and used Airbus A330 aircraft for in-flight refuelling of Royal Air Force jets from 2008 for 27 years.

The consortium includes France's Thales and Britain's Rolls-Royce and Cobham.
