Airbus Helicopters on Monday rejected a German media report that the defence company had bribed Greek officials to buy several of its NH-90 helicopters.

“These allegations are groundless and damage the reputation of Airbus Helicopters,” the company said in a statement.

German newspaper Bild had reported that Airbus’ helicopter unit was alleged to have paid 41 million euros in bribes to Greek officials to sell 20 NH-90 helicopters.
