In addition the Company also signed an agreement in principle to supply additional extrusion products to Airbus. These new agreements, announced at the Paris Air Show at Le Bourget, further expand Alcoa's strategic partnership with Airbus.

Terms were not disclosed, but it is worth nearly $2.0 billion in revenues over the course of the agreement, which runs through December 2011.

'This extension to the partnership between Airbus and Alcoa utilizes elements of our 20-20 initiative to reduce the weight and cost of advanced aerospace metallics,' said William Christopher, Alcoa Executive Vice President and Group President of Alcoa Aerospace, Automotive and Commercial Transportation. 'Our work together with customers to develop solutions that meet or exceed mission weight and performance requirements is paying dividends for all of our partners.'

Alcoa announced last week that it is expanding its aerospace heat-treated sheet and plate capacity by 50 percent as a result of customer orders.
