*Airbus Provides Update on Legal Cases*

*- *Acknowledges arbitral award of EUR 104 million in commercial dispute
between Matra Défense S.A.S. and the Republic of China

- In discussion with Munich public prosecution (Staatsanwaltschaft München
I) for potential termination of Eurofighter Austria investigation

Airbus SE (stock exchange symbol: AIR) is providing an update on two
unrelated legacy legal cases.

The first legal legacy case concerns a commercial dispute, previously
mentioned in the company's Financial Statements, between subsidiary Matra
Défense S.A.S. and the Republic of China (Taiwan). In 1998, Matra Défense
S.A.S. was acquired by one of the French predecessor companies which later
merged into EADS.

Airbus acknowledges notification of an arbitral award on 12 January 2018
concerning a breach of contract claim related to a purchase agreement signed
in 1992 for the supply of missiles for which the products were delivered in
the years shortly thereafter. The award amounts to EUR 104 million.

Matra Défense S.A.S. is reviewing the award before evaluating the next steps
to take following the outcome of this arbitration.

The second unrelated legal legacy case concerns the ongoing investigation by
the Munich public prosecution (Staatsanwaltschaft München I) in relation to
the sale of Eurofighter aircraft to the Republic of Austria.

Airbus confirms that it is in discussion with the Munich public prosecution
(Staatsanwaltschaft München I) about the potential termination of the
investigation in the context of the sale of Eurofighter aircraft in 2003 by
former EADS Deutschland GmbH (renamed Airbus Defence and Space GmbH) to the
Republic of Austria. Once concluded, Airbus will disclose the result.
