Airbus says A400M technical issues not safety critical

BERLIN (Reuters) - Airbus (AIR.PA) said on Wednesday that technical issues in its A400M planes that had prompted Germany to refuse delivery of two of the aircraft were not safety critical.

“We are aware of findings related to dowel bolts/Propeller interface in some of our customer aircraft,” it said in a statement, adding this had been communicated to customers.

It added: “This is not safety critical and our customers continue to accept and operate their aircraft.”
