Airbus bids to improve comms with Westminster

Airbus is on the hunt for its first Westminster campaigner in a bid to ramp up its government affairs team following the Aerospace Innovation and Growth Team’s (AeIGT) report on the development and communication needs of the industry.

AeIGT, which is made up of government and aerospace industry representatives, including Airbus, reported there was an urgent requirement to establish effective dialogue between the industry and the Government.

The new role will be the most senior London-based public affairs position, reporting to Airbus UK head of comms and government affairs Howard Berry.

‘Since splitting from BAE Systems, our headquarters have been in Bristol. We need someone in London who has a good understanding of the aerospace industry and can strengthen Airbus’s relationship with the Government and trade bodies there,’ Berry said.

Airbus employs 100,000 people across the UK. There are more than 3,300 Airbus aircraft currently in operation.
