BERLIN, Jan 28 (Reuters) - EADS EAD.PA Chief Executive Louis Gallois said on Wednesday the European aerospace group wanted to bid in a U.S. air tanker competition and assumed there would be fair conditions in the process.
Gallois, speaking in Berlin, added that he expected EADS would win the contract.
U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates said on Tuesday he intended to proceed early this spring with a competitive process in the military’s $35 billion program to begin replacing its aging fleet of aerial refuelling tankers. (Reporting by Kerstin Doerr, writing by Paul Carrel)
