Name Change Removes Airbus's Image in Washington: Airbus US Chief

A company manager said on Tuesday that the last name change of the Airbus Group has improved the perception of European weapons and planner, especially among US government customers. Previously known as EADS, the company announced its re-branding last summer to improve its corporate image, and shareholders approved the name change at the end of May. The new name matched the company's legal title with its flagship brand and commercial aircraft Airbus. .
