Airbus and Eurocopter have signed a €1.5bn (A$2.1bn) agreement which will see doors for the A350 XWB designed and manufactured by Eurocopter Deutschland at Donauwörth in Germany.

“This A350 XWB contract with Airbus, which gives us the go-ahead for the production phase, is of decisive importance to the future sustainability of our manufacturing site in Germany,” declared Lutz Bertling, president and CEO of the Eurocopter Group. “It confirms our position as an experienced and highly skilled manufacturer of aircraft components, rather than merely as a leader in the helicopter business,”

Both Airbus and Eurocopter are both subsidiaries of EADS.
