Airbus halted the supply of components to Russia and ceased supporting Russian airlines.
The announcement late on Tuesday came as aircraft and engine manufacturers, lessors and maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) providers with Russian clients face various EU and U.S. bans, including leasing planes, exporting new aircraft and providing parts.
Airbus said on Wednesday: “In line with international sanctions now in place, Airbus has suspended support services to Russian airlines, as well as the supply of spare parts to the country.”
“Services provided by the Airbus Engineering Centre in Russia (ECAR) have also been suspended pending further review.”
“Regarding engineering services ECAR provides to its Russian customers, ECAR is analysing the export control sanctions to determine if this activity can be maintained in line with the sanctions,” Airbus said, adding it obeys all applicable laws.
