GKN PLC’s Aerospace Services division has won the Airbus UK contract for the design and manufacture of the Wing Trailing Edge panels for the Airbus A380 Superjumbo, valuing the deal at US$600M over the expected aircraft life of the programme.

GKN Aerospace Services is already involved in the design of the important midbox structure for the A380 wing and the manufacture of the composite flap track beams that are also structural wing components.

The latest award brings the total estimated value of work secured by GKN on the A380 to more than 800 mln usd, the company said.

Design of the panels will be undertaken in Bristol and Cowes in the UK and manufacture in Cowes and in Alabama in the US, both operations of which already produce wing components for other Airbus aircraft.
