The delivery of our 200th nacelle is a sign of an upturn in the nacelle production volume index for long-haul aircraft. Today, our teams, in the factories and beyond, are proud to deliver this product, especially after the impact of the Covid-19 crisis on this program. This step demonstrates our commitment and our desire to position ourselves in this market segment. Airbus and airlines can count on Safran Nacelles to support them in relaunching air transport.”said Vincent Caro, President of Safran Nacelles.
