    Irkutsk Aviation Plant, a part of Russian aircraft manufacturer Irkut, and European consortium Airbus are holding talks on the expansion of the cooperation in the production of Airbus A320 series aircraft components, the plant's production director, Sergei Yamanov, said Tuesday.

    IRKUTSK (Sputnik) — Irkutsk Aviation Plant manufactures the nose landing gear bay and other components for the A320 family. In average, every third A320 series aircraft has components produced at the Russian plant.

    "We continue talks on cooperation with French representatives of Airbus which is beneficial for both us and the French side," Yamanov told reporters.

    He added that the French side had asked the plant to double the production rates of the nose landing gear bays for A320 aircraft but the talks yielded no results so far.

    Russia's Irkut Corporation provides complete solutions in military and civil aircraft design, testing, manufacture, marketing, sales, and after-sales support.
