Airbus CEO Bregier: Boeing's Issues With 787 Won't Delay A350

Airbus CEO Frabrice Bregier has told CNBC, at the World Economic Forum in Davos, that the issues faced by Boeing with its 787 Dreamliner, will not lead to delays in certification of Airbus's A350 which is currently under development.

The FAA is investigating the lithium-ion batteries on Boeing's Dreamliner plane. The aircraft uses new technology such as all electric systems and composite materials.

Airbus's A350 is also reported to use similar lithium-ion batteries to the one on the Dreamliner.

Airbus is a part of European aerospace and defense company EADS.
