The European company Airbus once again called on the European Union not to impose sanctions against Russian titanium – metal, actively used in the aviation industry. This is reported by  The Wall Street Journal.

According to Airbus CEO Guillaume Faury, sanctions on titanium from Russia could become sanctions against the EU.

" Sales of titanium – this is one of areas of business where neither party is interested in changing the current situation", — says Faury.

The publication notes that switching to other manufacturers is hindered by a complex certification process that can take from 18 to 24 months.

According to Pascal Fabre, director of Alix Partners , there is a strong dependence on one specific supplier, which is why it is difficult to change the entire system.
