Aviation majors force EADS to reconsider

Bangalore: Where the Karnataka government has failed, two aviation majors might succeed. The European Aeronautic Defence and Space Company (EADS) has said it will give top priority to setting up its technology centre and campus in Bangalore after a fervent plea by Kingfisher Airlines chairman Vijay Mallya and Air Deccan MD GR Gopinath.
Though Bangalore had been shortlisted, EADS was finding it difficult to set up the facility here because the state government was unresponsive to requests for concessions sought by the European major.
However, EADS CEO Tom Enders told an audience late on Friday night that the company will do everything to set up the facility in Bangalore. A final decision will be taken in the next couple of weeks.
