Airbus selected Strata to manufacture the A350-900 inboard flap in 2015.
Ismail Ali Abdulla, CEO of Strata, said: "The impending delivery of inboard flaps to Airbus' final assembly line in Toulouse reinforces Strata's status as a tier-one supplier to Airbus. Today, we mark nine years of a close relationship - an association driven by shared values and a sustained global demand for commercial airplanes.
Strata-produced inboard flaps will be incorporated into A350s from January 2018, and the UAE-based company expects to ramp up production of these important components in 2018 and 2019.
Franck Martin, head of Airbus procurement aerostructures, said: "The delivery of the first shipset of A350 inboard flaps to Airbus is a major milestone in the Airbus and Strata relationship, building on our significant achievements over the last nine years. Airbus is proud to be a premier partner of Strata and the UAE and we look forward to continuing our relationship into the next decade." - Wam
