BERLIN (Reuters) - Airbus Group Chief Executive Tom Enders said on Wednesday the company would solve the problems with its A400M transport plane that have resulted in production delays.

Enders told reporters at the ILA airshow in Berlin he was convinced “that in the foreseeable future we can do that together with our partners.”

“We are working intensively to solve the issues in production, which currently have a lot to do with engine problems, and to ratchet up production,” he said.

On whether Airbus could hit its original target of delivering 20 or more A400M planes this year, Enders said: “I can’t say today.”
