Following the lead of the European Union, the United Kingdom has also reached a compromise in the protracted conflict over subsidies to both sides for aircraft manufacturers Boeing and Airbus.

Earlier, Brussels and the United States also reached a similar compromise in the issue that has been going on for seventeen years.

For years, Europe and the US accused each other of unfairly favoring their aircraft manufacturers.

They have imposed billions of euros and dollars in punitive measures against each other because, according to the Europeans, Washington illegally supports Boeing and Airbus, jointly owned by Germany, France, Spain and the United Kingdom, received illegal subsidies according to the US.

The EU and the US previously said they would freeze the sanctions for a period of five years.

In that time a structural solution must be found.

The British and Americans now concluded a similar agreement.
