Airbus Finalises ATK A350 Variant Deal

Airbus has finalised an agreement with ATK to manufacture and supply composite stringers and frames on the -1000 variant of the A350 XWB programme. The agreement builds on Airbus’ relationship with ATK, which already produces composite stringers and frames for the A350 XWB-900. "This is another significant milestone in our long-term partnership with Airbus on the A350 XWB programme. We are excited about the possibilities that the –1000 variant presents, and our team is eager to continue this journey," said Joy de Lisser, vice president and general manager of ATK's Aerospace Structures division.
