Airbus Cuts Down Wing Production Amid COVID-19 Outbreak

: Mar 27, 2020 - : 12:46 am

Even while securing business continuity, Airbus has been taking stringent measures to ensure the safety and wellbeing of its workforce during the current COVID-19 outbreak.

On March 23, production resumed in Spain and France after four-day break for deep cleaning and re-evaluation of the situation, while operations in the U.K., U.S., and Germany continued at normal production rates.

Having reviewed completed stock levels and assessed them against demand from the Final Assembly Line, the company has chosen to pare back on wing production at its plants in both the U.K. and Germany, a situation that will remain in place for the next three weeks. At Filton and Broughton in the U.K., activities will be reduced and an extended break at Easter taken. In Bremen, Germany, the working week will be reduced.

The sites will remain open during this period and will continue to ensure wing deliveries to the final assembly lines, the receipt and control of materials and components from the supply chain, building and installation maintenance, critical administrative support and preparation for activity restart.
