(21st Feb 2003)


AIRBUS, the French-based European aircraft manufacturer, has received a techno-leg up from three leading Japanese companies who have agreed to supply equipment for the A380 Airbus' next-generation super jumbo programme.

Yokogawa Electric Corporation, Casio Computers, and Makino Milling Machines will be added to the 10 other Japanese suppliers already contracted to Airbus. Altogether these contracts will raise Japan's estimated revenue of the A380 programme to well over US$2.15 billion in the projected future.

To date, Airbus has received ten confirmed orders and commitments for a total of 103 A380s. The 555-seater A380 will enter into service in early 2006.
