Airbus CEO says safety is 'paramount'

Airlines have grounded nearly all of Boeing's flagship 787 Dreamliner planes amid continuing safety concerns.

The US Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) issued a directive to temporarily take the planes out of service while safety checks were carried out.

European regulators have also called for the planes to be grounded.

Boeing said the planes were safe and that it stood by the integrity of the Dreamliner, which has been in service since October 2011.

Fabrice Bregier, the CEO of Airbus, said safety was paramount for both his company and Boeing.
