Airbus Helicopters strengthens position as UK market leader

Airbus Helicopters U.K. has defied market conditions with a new high of 14 civil aircraft booked in 2017, demonstrating a year-on-year average growth in the civil market of  36 percent since 2013.

As a result, the company has reinforced its position as U.K. market leader with 46 percent of the civil and parapublic market. This follows the company’s long-term commitment, made in 2015, to invest in increasing its industrialization in the U.K.; an Airbus home country.

“As a home country, it is Airbus Helicopters’ role to invest in current and future U.K.-based rotary-wing solutions and technology for the benefit of customers at home and overseas; in this way helping to make the U.K. and Airbus Helicopters more competitive on the global market,” said Colin James, managing director, Airbus Helicopters U.K. “Furthermore, by leveraging on our civil business know-how we are helping to drive efficiencies into the U.K. defense helicopter market.”
