AI(R) to be dissolved

British Aerospace, Aerospatiale, and Alenia Aerospazio agreed to dissolve their Aero International (Regional) partnership at a meeting of the AI(R) Board of Directors held on Friday 24 April. Once the dissolution is finalized, BAe and ATR will resume marketing their product lines independently. The two companies will, however, continue to share some facilities at Toulouse and Washington DC. The decision to dissolve AI(R) came in the wake of the decision to cancel the planned AIRJET in December 1997.
