The Economy Minister, Edwina Hart AM, has welcomed the news that AirAsia has made an order with Airbus for 25 more A330-300s. The wings will be made at Airbus' Broughton plant in North Wales, which employs 6,000 people.
This is great news for Airbus and another feather in the cap for the highly skilled team at Broughton.
Airbus makes a massive contribution to the Welsh economy financially, as well in terms of employment, skills development, apprenticeships and supply chain opportunities.
I congratulate the company on winning yet another significant contract that in turn helps the long term sustainability of its operation in Wales.
