Press Release

Congressman Bradley Byrne (R-AL) issued the following statement after the Trump Administration announced that they will maintain the decision to not impose tariffs on component parts imported to Airbus Mobile’s facilities.

Congressman Byrne said: “This is another huge win for Airbus Mobile, the thousands of workers connected to it, and the entire Southwest Alabama economy.  The American jets manufactured by the men and women at Airbus Mobile are one of the most state of the art in the world, and I thank the Trump Administration for this decision and continuing to put American workers first.  I have no doubt we will see the fruits of this decision as Mobile continues on the path to being a worldwide center of aviation excellence.”
