EADS Proposes Splitting U.S. Tanker Aircraft Award With Boeing

Dec. 3 (Bloomberg) -- The European Aeronautic Defense & Space Co., the parent of Airbus SAS, proposed splitting a contract to supply aerial refueling tankers to the U.S. Air Force with Boeing Co., said the company's chief executive for North America.

The Pentagon said last month it would open the award to new bidders after Congress withdrew an earlier proposal for 100 planes worth $23 billion to Boeing. Ralph Crosby, chairman and chief executive of EADS North America, told reporters at a conference in New York he has spoken to U.S. officials who support splitting the award. He declined to name the officials.
