Paris, France - Airbus' Boss Guillaume Faury is suggesting a government-supported support program to encourage the airlines to operate more environmentally friendly aircraft.

According to the CEO of the European aircraft manufacturer, The governments should rather support the local airlines in the climate-friendly conversion of their fleets.

Faury also warned against new tax burdens for airlines.

“Taxes inhibit the industry more than they encourage the departure into the future,” 

he told German magazine, Der Spiegel.

Faury currently does not want to apply for state aid for his company during the coronavirus pandemic, but he was not ruling it out either, wrote Spiegel.

Rival Boeing has said it will resume commercial airplane production this week in Washington state after suspending operations last month in response to the coronavirus pandemic. The company’s chief executive told employees the aerospace industry will need financial help from the government.
