Bloomberg: Veritas Capital in Lead to Buy Airbus Maintenance, Repair Business

acquisitionNew York City-based private equity firm Veritas Capital has emerged as the leading bidder to purchase Airbus Group’s Vector Aerospace aircraft maintenance and repair business, Bloomberg reported Friday.

Airbus could receive up to $800 million in a sale of the Vector business, according to Bloomberg.
